1700 mile road trip

So as of about 15 mins ago me and my buddy started our 1700 mile road trip for a long 4 day weekend. From ill to maryland. So I'm putting my baby to the test. See how she can handle this trip. I took good care of her topped off all her fluids changed her oil and oil filter new cai filter so I'm hoping all goes well.

Man I'd love to take my car on a huge road trip. I'd need to make sure everything is in tip top shape. Good luck, snap some pics.

Wow, I just got back from a failed roadtrip... I was driving down to Charlotte from Detroit to see a buddy of mine for St. Pats. I got about 2 hours away and between the crazy traffic, and the firm suspension I called him and cancelled. I just can't justify driving 12 hours today, then turning around and doing it again on sunday... especially considering last weekend I drove to texas and back, 2700 miles round trip (not in my car, and with another driver), and I have to go one way back to texas the week after next in my car... sucks I had to disappoint my friend like that, but I don't think I can do 24 driving hours in my SVT alone in 3 days... well I guess I can just put the money I was going to spend towards a tune..

^^^Holy cripes!!
That's a bit too much driving in my book as well!

I guess I'm a bit outdated as far as electronic devices...
I had no idea you could get the internet over a cell phone.
So...that's what my wife is doing with her Blackberry when we're on road trips!

Yea I have a sidekick 3.. It has everything on it.. So the first 800 miles of the trip are down. Let me tell you that sucked so bad. We got 2 PA and it started snowing so we had to go 40 mph for 300 miles because my car sucks in the snow. We leave to go home on sunday night when I get back home to my computer ill post pix up. But all in all the car so far has been great I avg about 24-26 mpg so not bad. More to add later
