Looks like they're about 150 miles outside of home. Although challenges make it more interesting to read, I'm glad it's been uneventful so far.

106 miles to Charleston, we have a full tank of gas, a half a bag of Doritos, its dark outside and I can't find my sunglasses.

Me too! I try to run them over every chance I get. Wonder if we can hit them with the bus.

I am really impressed with this bus. Sounds like it likes the open road and is glad to be back.

For coolant temps, on an old school all-iron motor like that, 210 is perfectly fine (provided the rad cap is holding pressure), no need to stop for a cool down yet. If you start pushing 220 or more, then I'd think about giving it a rest.

For some reason the tracker is being dumb. 20 miles left.

Radiator cap may be a little questionable it is original to the bus. It also would of been bad to find out it would keep climbing in that particular situation. Also it was an easy place to stop. But that said yes you are correct.

Yup, there was a big gap in between the last two waypoints on the map. It kind of looks like you suddenly increased speed to 110mph.
