That is cool that you were able to make the trip in your 55. I wish we could have met up but maybe next time. I have to agree about the heat. I did not stay as long each day as I wanted to because the heat just sapped the wife and I. It was a very good show and I will definatly go back again. Also I have to agree with you anout staying off of the interstates. When I drive my 57 down I will do the same as you and see small town America.
