    Day one.

    Got 3 hours of sleep, then jumped in the Subaru, and took the wife and the luggage to Bradly Airport, 40+ miles at 4:00am...got to the airport, slid right thru security and got on a plane to BFE Ohio, then got on another plane to New Mexico...still no problems.

    Well, went to Avis, and got a car, damn good deal with company perks, snagged some new hardtop Chrysler Sebring luxury thinggy POS...drove it 40 miles and couldn't stand it, so I took it back and exchanged it for another Mitsu spider, this time a non convertible...and the v6...and I'm impressed with the car so far.

    Drove down from Alb, to Socorro, and jumped on a long side rode to the VLA, NRAO Very Large Array checked it out for about an hour, and got back on the road, and made it down to Trueth or Consequinses.(sp)..and snagged a room at the comfort inn.... And we are beat...


    going to be a long day tomomoorrrow.....:cool:

    You're from T or C ? I lived in Alamagordo / Elephant Butte for a bit. Used to go down there on weekends from Colorado Springs.

    Spending weekends at elephant butte = spending weekends staring at a chocolate fountain.

    Fun. My aunt lives in Cruces now. Ostrich farm. No kidding.

    Day 2.

    Woke up, had breakfast at Dennies, then hit the road and got to white sands....( just our luck, we had to go when the winds were 40 mph gusts)... so the wife enjoyed it, but not as much as she could have if the wind was not there. Went to Alamogordo and checked out the space mesuem ...it was not as cool as I remembered it years ago.... and then made it up to Roswell...and snagged dinner and a hotel.

    Day 3.

    Planning on checking out the alien life here today and head up to santa fe tonight.

    So you're gonna knock Cosworth and Honda for making crap motors because mine are apart ?

    And yes, my Kawasaki motor is doing JUST FINE.

    compared to yours, mine have been running forever :lol:

    not knocking the companies. you dont have a FA motor in your vega and IIRC your honda is dead due to mechanical issues. probably friday motors.
