RE: [T3] The Insanity line

Yea, it wont be nearly as fun but Ive got a couple thousand more miles to go
than Michigan crew. I haven't cancelled yet.... maybe we can all do a gas
chant or something, or the screams from the SUV and minivan owners will
scare the oil companies or something...

The Cruise costs about 1MPG, but I plan to modify the pickup system when I
have the Tranny out so it may have better and more precise control on this
trip and be more efficient.

The downside is that the engine will have over 100K on it and I may be more
nervous about it, but that's for another post as well.

I am still planning on making the drive.  While it might end up being a 
bit cheaper to fly, the drive is so much more interesting and is a 
major part of the vacation for me.  Wouldn't be the same being at an 
Invasion without Sophy. <G>

And just think how much better mileage we would be able to get being 
able to take advantage of momentum in the mountains without Keith's 
cruise control and oil temp gage holding us back.
