I will try not to take it personally that you sound reticent to go on a road trip in your hopped-up Challenger to see a fellow CT member.

I mean, almost all of the elements of a kick-ass trip are present:
1. vehicle which is trustworthy enough to take and fun enough to drive on long distances - CHECK
2. destination that has plenty to do and plenty to see - CHECK
3. travel companions OR destination inhabitants which offer titillating conversation and are generally a pleasure to be around - UNCHECK?

It sounds like the only unpleasant aspect of any potential road-trip is me, and while I fully admit to disliking the general population and preferring instead to avoid talking to them at all, I would have considered you separate from them. You, , @Hal H , would have been given special dispensation with regards to my policy on interacting with other humans.

For YOU, I would have gladly made an exception; I would have finally let down my defenses and opened up about what makes me tick just like everyone says I should do. Hell, for you, I would have even put on deodorant when we went for steaks and beers!

But alas, it is not to be...that's fine, I've been neglecting the yard lately. So it is probably better if I do some weeding anyway with the time I would have spent eating steaks and drinking beer with you and your Challenger.

Nuke

Oh the endless hours of travel through the rural, humid parts of GA > MS > LA to get to Texas...

I'd like to plan a trip to the Wellborn Museum in AL, but that's about as much driving in that general direction I'd want to do.

I have planned trip to MI coming up this summer (Woodward Dream Cruise) if a new job doesn't interfere with those plans.
My new house is expected to finish build & close in September - and I'll take off time to get moved into the new house. I can expect to only take off so much time if starting a new job any time soon.

You're always welcome to visit NC. The new house is planned to get a 2 post lift already have spec'd a dedicated 220v circuit for that purpose.

He will serve you slices of Nolan Ryan (don't ask me how he acquired them, but he seems fond of saying he is preparing Nolan Ryan steaks )
