I was planing to go to the New England meet on the Nov 15th, but I a family emergency and had to go to KY. So me and my wife went in OUR FOR2. It rained 85% of the drive down there and was foggy the other 15%, other wise it was an unevevntful drive. Yes we got a lot of looks and questions during the trip, but that's become the norm. Now befor I tell you of the trip home. I live in Maine and expected to see snow in a week or more, I was wrong. The drive home started with lite flurrys in KY, through WV and into MD the snow varied from mountain to mountain stopping just after we stopped at a MD rest area (see photo) thought we were free of snow but central PA had some heavy snow (4") and had to detour from route 81, after that it was smooth driving. We stopped at Smart Lynnfield on the way home becouse we hit 10000 mlies at about the NJ-NY state line, recieved a clean bill of heath and a good wash. We got home and the whole trip was about 2000 miles.

How was driving in the snow? I'll be driving 40 miles per day in the Chicago winters.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! (smile) I too took a little trip about a month ago. Went from my home here in Southern Cal. back to visit my parents and family in Mid-state Kansas. Nice little trip and enjoyed the drive.

Looks like you had the more challenging trip in the snow and cold. (smile)

I see the military sticker in the window.... retired or still active? I retired in 2000 after 27 years..... still need to get a sticker on the Smart though. (smile)

Best wishes,
