Whiteballz.

He better still be committed.
Oh yea, not sure what happened with that.. 'ballz has been suspiciously quiet of late. He must be plotting something somewhere...

where was your start point? exactly what roads did you take? how long did it take? what distance? what kind of gas mileage?

i too love road trips, great part of being American!

Most of the trip was on I 40 out of Music City TN. From Vegas on the roads are on the map. The interesting stuff is the Vegas onward part.
The total trip was 5:50 AM on Thursday to 12:30 AM the following Monday. I spent a bit of time in Vegas so it was just 3 days in the saddle. Mileage was about 30mpg overall. Mileage was better at altitude. It also helped that after Vegas I didn't need the AC. In fact some of that time was below freezing...

I meant I wanted to know which kind of Saab was...

Interesting selection of cars there, by the way.

Fantastic trip dude. A trip across the US is something I've wanted to do for a long time.

the 2012 trip as planned might be a bit of a pipe dream, but us aussies have some epic road tripping up our sleeves yet...
