    Well we're on our way! The long journey from Washington State has begun! We have Jeff Bush's 1G 42R auto drag car in tow looking to have a great time! This thread will be updated often showing our progress so stay tuned!

    For everyone's information, below is the map of our trip. This isn't the exact route we're taking but you get the idea. :)

    Thanks for all the support and good wishes everyone! Looks like we're taking the northern route through Montana, South Dakota, etc. It's 11:33am and we're a bit outside Coeur D'Alene, Idaho now. Keep losing 3G coverage in the middle of nowhere areas. :p

    Unfortunately we don't have the little 16G auto due to circumstances outside our control. Plus Jeff's big auto is such a handful we'll be plenty busy with that.

    On a side note, it's about 5:30pm here local time and we're in Butte, MT. :)

    Butte, MT

    WTF? :p

    Update! It's 8:55pm local time here. We made it to Billings, MT. Crazy thunderstorms all through Montana. Pretty awesome really!

    I'm sorry for the quality of the pics. I'm using my new Droid X that has an 8mp camera but it's tough at night in the bumpy truck.

    Wow, that's a long drive. What's the total estimated hours? We're heading out from Georgia 4am Friday morning. It's about a 12 hr drive for us. So, I'm guessing yours is at least 24-30 hrs.
    Drive safe and see you there.

    We estimated 35 hours or so. It's just under 2500 miles each way. We should be in Norwalk super early Friday morning we think.
