    It looks nice on the map... the weather forecast looks good and I feel the need to drop the hood and go for a spin... I'll be sure to wave at any passing planes :-h

    Isn't it great getting onto new roads and finding new grounds to explore. Exactly why when we travel anywhere we try to find new places to see. Glad you and Sara had such a great ride out!! JIM
