No vacation time left this year. So no.

However, I took one in late April to Ohio from Colorado. I've also done two others. One other to Ohio, and another to California.

All in all, about 10K of the miles I've put on my car have been from cross country road trips.

Kinda. I go back and forth between VA and the midwest a lot. As a matter of fact, just this morning I got back from Flint (560 mile trip). With the car completely packed, I averaged 39.8 mpg over the whole trip. Not bad if you ask me.

I still need to replace the struts, tires and exhaust. Plus I don't know if the AC is still working. I haven't used it yet. So no road trips. If I get it done by September it might take its first road trip up to Milwaukee.

Not this year. It's actually an oddity for my family NOT to go on a road trip. However, my 88 year old grandma lives with us and her mobility has gotten very poor lately.

I think we need to clarify what Road trip means... To me, it must:

1. Be over 1000 miles round trip
2. Have more than 2 people
3. Have a party at the other end
4. Make you wish you had a radar detector

My wife and I and another couple are going on a week long two car road trip through western PA and Ohio. We have tickets for several baseball games in Pittsburgh and the new stadium in Cincinnati and also want to catch some nightlife in both cities. We also plan to visit the USAF Museum in Dayton to see the latest exhibit hanger and some of the special things commemorating the 100th anniversery of powered flight. Finally if things work out schedule and weather wise, we are going to try to meet up with Armadillo and her husband to check out their sailboat. On the way home we want to stop at the 9/11 crash site near Somerset, PA.

The wife & I are planning a road trip to the Upper Pennisula of Michigan this July.
One way to our destination is about 675 miles. From what we understand, there is plenty of open road up there with beautiful scenery. We will be in search of many of Michigan's lighthouses. So far we have visited about 45 of the 110. Lake Superior is the only Great Lake we haven't been to, yet.

If any you live up there or have visited there, post your comments on what to see, speed traps, beaches, microbreweries, etc.

Daytona Beach, FL, to Ellison Bay, WI, from 8/7 to 8/18. Almost 3000 mi. round trip.

Just traded my '94 SC-2 for a '99 SC-2 with cruise, air, power sunroof. Decided tp drive the annual trip to the summer place this year, as I like to do about every 3 - 5 years. (My rental car for 10 days last year was almost $500, after flying to Milwaukee!!)

John:
Plan on spending a whole day at the air museum. It is one place you want to stop & smell the roses to speak. I was really impressed with the hangar exhibit featuring the U2 spy plane, Stealth bomber, and the ME-262. Just got back from the Akron MAPS air show Saturday & had a blast. Will post some pictures, soon.

My wife and I are planning our yearly trip to Cambria, California. Cambria, a small town on Highway 1 halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, is nestled between the forest and the Pacific Ocean. This is a yearly, long-weekend trip. We stay in San Simeon, about three minutes north of Cambria, at the Best Western Fireside Inn, which is located across the street from Hearst Castle, on the Ocean.

Itís a romantic spot. In the evening the hotel builds large fires on the beach. The hot fire makes the cold ocean breeze almost magical. Guests, who come from many nations, sit on logs and roast marshmallows and exchange ideas. Itís great fun.

A couple of miles up Highway 1, you can view Elephant Seals lying on the beach. There are a few good wineries with tasting rooms and the town of Cambria has excellent restaurants. And donít forget the town of Harmony, population seven. It is a few miles south of Cambria, on 1. There is a winery, glass blowing art colony and a great pottery shop.

Well, I was planning one for the 1997 SL2, but we'll be taking the Sable in stead since it replace the 1997 as the family wagon. Going to Atlanta for a week, Simpsonville SC for a few days, Virginia Beach for three days, Sweetwater NJ for ten days, then back South. Might stop in Charleston too, not sure yet.

I'm taking the SL2 to North Florida for a business trip in a couple of weeks, but that is only a few hundred miles.

Even though I'm not planning a road trip, I can't say that it won't happen this summer. I really enjoy driving and often go on short trips just for the fun of seeing new places. There have been times when I've taken 6 or 7 hour round trips planned the day before with different friends just to visit some quaint attraction for a couple of hours.

Last year, I went camping with a large group of friends in northern PA over the labor day weekend and will probably do it again this year.
