I also hope neither one of you is carrying any weapons.
Dr. Frank is salty ever since his "biting wit" is registered as an "offensive weapon" in California and 17 other states.

Having a great time with a great group of people. Tour drives different directions each day and then back to Calistoga, CA. Guess which car has the most luggage room in the last pic!

Psycho, you'd better like your driving partner a whole lot for a drive that long in that car.

Came out on I-10 and road was very poor in spots. Traffic in LA was terrible as was coming through Phoenix.

Going to come back a different route.

Friday night, got invited to a Studio Grand Opening by Ted7, a fellow photographer. They gave me a nice spot upfront and the GT fit in nicely. Nice collection of cars! GT1 and a GTR among others. When I left, a Ferrari Aperta slid into my space.

Just some iPhone snaps.

Sunday morning, Tustin Legacy Cars and Coffee, Ford Featured Marquee.

After the end of the regular meet, found a nice shaded spot and set up an impromptu three generations shoot.

Came out on I-10 and road was very poor in spots. Traffic in LA was terrible as was coming through Phoenix.

Going to come back a different route.

Back home now from our CA trip. Had a lot of fun and some great driving roads and some fun cars to follow/lead (2019 vs 1959).:cool:

After going out on I-10 decided to come back a different route. Cold temps and snow in higher elevations dictated our travel route back through CA. Decided on I-40 to Albuquerque.

While in AZ took a side trip on old Hwy 66 which turned out to be a nice 80+ mile drive.(y)
IMG_0196.jpg

Woke up to 45 degree temps in Albuquerque with rain and snow predicted just ahead so we ended up chasing the sun towards Roswell, NM :alien: and then diagonally down thru Texas to home.

Encountered high winds across eastern NM and western TX which included tumble weeds seemingly travelling faster than my GT and blowing dust in spots. Glad I had the rock guards on my car. Several tumble weed parts decided to hitch a ride on my car till the next gas stop!:oops:

We shipped our bags out and back by FedEx and Susan had a single road clothes/makeup bag under her feet for the drive. A little cramped, but it did work. Empty shoe makes a great cup holder for the GT.

My road clothes bag went in the trunk and each night it was like my clothes were just coming out of a hot (very hot) dryer!

In all we traveled 4,209 miles using 200 gals of gas and averaged 21 mi/gal of mainly highway driving. Car did great, but I did discover that I hate the use/position of the turn signal buttons. They just aren't in the right position for me to use quickly when changing lanes!

My GT is washed and getting prepped for the Rally 13/Scottsdale, but we will be having it trucked to the rally and back. Hard to beat our 2012 Ford F150 as the highway king!

Would I do a trip like this again with my '19 GT -- not sure. Been there and got the ticket! Our 2006 GT is the better long distance cruiser from my experience.

Meant got my pass stamped! No "Ticket" this trip, but came close. I did pass a Corvette coming back and while I was at the gas station pulling tumbleweeds from the car he went by. I left shortly after he went by and a few miles down the road the county sheriffs had him pulled over.

Magic, I will have a solution to the turn signal buttons in April. You will like this.

It is much easier to travel alone and have your luggage with you. I made the trip to Atlanta with no complaints. I forgot you had no cup holders.

I agree sometimes swipe wiper buttons and harder to find with eyes up. Looking for ward to what the good Doc has to offer.
