  1. What is your longest trip.

    Driving my Divco a long distance, has been some of the best travel I have ever had.

    Detroit to New Smyrna Beach Fla, is my longest, so far. 1200 miles in 18 hours

    Does walking 20 minutes count? Of course I can ride with someone, or drive my Shoe Box. Have not decided Yet! I haven't missed a day in 20 years! Cheers, Don

    Its driving me nuts not being able to head down this year since I have made it the last 5 years in a row,all the car needs is a new set of tires and its ready and tempted to leave the woman here since she is the one who had to change jobs and come down myself.
     
  13. I guess a measly 550 miles won't even count..
    Be there from the 23rd til the 30th...

    Since I am not going to make it this year I am going to do some changes to the car to try to get a little better gas mileage for next year.
