What? Are your a mind reader? LoL.. Just yesterday I was saying, “ya know, a trip to New Braunfels sounds nice”!

Also, I think Crystalworks attends a meet in October as well. CW, correct me if I am wrong. And, Overboost comes to Austin in November if I remember correctly.

I wouldn’t mind a road trip or two.

Absolutely!

Long drive for you Happy, but the more the merrier. Few more and we could classify it as an Xoutpost GtG!

49k miles, WOW! My 2018 vehicle has 56k miles on it and I have 3 cars lol. Glad to hear the trip went smoothly! I'm still holding out hope that I'll have a successful road trip in my E53. Going to take it to Houston in a few weeks from New Orleans (330 miles each way).

They are indeed a rare site these days, especially out on the open road.

It's funny. There are actually quite a few E53s on the road in the DC area. I mean, I've even spotted another 6MT parked within a few blocks of my house.

They're pretty common around here. The fact that 2 of them are in my garage notwithstanding.

Glad to report that the return trip went very smoothly. Took a different route back through Oklahoma on 44S and 69S. I've never had a particularly favorable opinion of Oklahoma, but I've got to say that some of the northern areas (especially the Native American territories) are just beautiful.

Car turned 50000 somewhere around McAlester, OK.

Whooboy, and it was HOT on the way back!

Glad to see y'all made it back.

Oh man, I would have been going 100+ MPH for a 50,000 mile pic.

At 115 MPH, it's two wheel drive!

She's been a great car for us so far. Just trying to keep the old gal going as long as I can. I'm less than fastidious about keeping her clean, but I do my best. :-) It's a local car, bought new in San Antonio. Traded in at the dealer with a ridiculous 17,929 miles on the clock when I got it in early 2019.

I got lucky on this one!
