    Yes, but getting rained on, while walking around without a shirt, in late November ain't all that bad

    Yeah and I'm southeast Tucson!
    Just did the drive there and back to Joliet IL -31 hrs each way. Boy did that suck. I have a patience limit of around twenty hours it seems. After that, I'm just mad the rest of the way lol. I saw two waggies rotting away on the way home through Missouri. There are so many vehicle horders down south it sickens me. I'm making the drive again next month and I'll have a better idea of whether or not it's worth it then. $700 in gas round trip this time so it will be a little less than half that to you and back. Hmm...

    Hi Nicholas. I don't expect to be up for driving out your way for that waggy over the holidays. I'll get hold of you if anything changes however. More than likely I won't be up for another drive like that until I am living out there so you should probably sell/scrap it. I don't think we're moving out there until summer of '13. I appreciate the offer greatly and wish I could take you up on it. That thing just looks so southwest it needs to be a runner. Sorry if I delayed your plans for the thing, I guess I didn't really think about how I'd feel about driving twenty hours for the waggy between two thirty-one hour drives in the same eight or nine days. Have a happy holiday season anyway and thanks again.
