    Now let's sort this out. Series V, no overdrive, never been more than 30 miles from home, 55 mph to keep rev's at 3k or less
    Phoenix, 1400 miles, super freeway through WA, Or and part of Idaho. Down the lovely east side of Nevada (population 6) through Vegas, down AZ, average temp 325 degrees, population 7, down the hill to Phoenix, average temp 429
    degrees. And then back.:eek:
    OR, down the forested and winding road through SW Washington to Astoria, down the beautiful Oregon coast to Medford, 600 miles, stopping at Bandon dunes to play all three of the world famous links courses there. If in Medford, back east through deep forest. If in San Fran, down highway 1 and into wine country.
    Crap, this is really a toughy!!!::)

    First off :mad: I'm from Nevada. It's very nice. The trip to Vegas is scenic, 'specially if you take the ET Highway. East out of Tonopah to Hwy 375 past Groom Lake thru Rachel.... (Cue the theme from X-Files) Although way out in the boondocks fuel is cheaper than Vegas and Tonopah, 'cause gas as we know it is a residual by product of the flying saucers the Extraterrestrials use. They gotta get rid of the evidence. So they sell it cheap. Our government supplies the trucks. Have been for years. Never see a fuel truck coming from either direction, just out of Groom Lake.

    The area along the route (cleverly disguised as pastures) are plenty of cows which are really highly trained forward observers warning the ET's of witnesses. This allows them to take off and land without detection.

    Secondly, the weather isn't that bad. Its been said without our summers, our population would be 5,000,000. And 2.5mil would be pastey folk from up north wearing bermudas, socks and sandals.....:rolleyes:

    Lastly, probably the hardest thing for you would be this shiny bright thing in our sky. We call it "The Sun". :cool:

    'Cuse me. Time for my meds....:D

    My wife and I drove from Mesquite to Sparks last year. Tonapah looks like a destination resort place to me:eek:
    Anyway, half way to Tonapah, we had not seen a car in 20 minutes but came across a flattened rabbit in the roadway. That was the unluckiest rabbit in the world.
    BTW, I have seen no evidence of anything shinny, other than a low flying passenger jet, in the sky. We don't tan, it is unhealthy, we rust.
    Oh, if I go to Phoenix, I will have to see my brother in law...

    Those do have to be BLACK socks. The better to contrast with the white legs.
