You should totally do the Coker Tire tour to the Mitty with Classic Motorsports in April with the bus. Chattanooga to the Mitty through twisty north ga.

I just hope the brakes hold up as well on the descent. Looking forward to the next update...

Let off the gas and it slows down pretty well on its own. Very little actual braking.

Keep on truckin'! Great adventure, its been fun following the journey, good luck on the final push. Sounds like you have managed to enjoy most of the trip. We are all routing for you to make it home this evening. Cue the Eastbound and down soundtrack with Mrs Toyman waving a checkered flag in the driveway.

It was probably a Wanderlodge. 35 mph uphill is flying!

I just imagine the miles it took you to catch up with them and then the miles of planning the passing maneuver.

65 to 60 oddly enough. It is hot enough now we had to open some windows. The heat off the fire wall is no longer pleasant on my feet.
