I feel like a piker here..

1450 miles RT home -> Detroit -> home for Woodward and a JNAP plant tour last August in my WK, with a stop at the rock and roll hall of fame on the way home.

Many 700mi RT trips to Carlisle for the Nationals.

Great vehicle for road trips.

We made the Athens, GA to Destin, Fl run 3 or 4 times in the late 80's. Only 750 miles, but with 2 Chesapeakes and a couple of bags, still a long trip in a CJ without A/C. They were good times.

Jacksonville, FL to Milledgeville, Ga(not too far outside Macon). Bout 5 hour trip two days after I bought my previous YJ.
5 hours of no radio, no A/C, super swampers drone, drizzling the whole time and the windshield wipers didn't work. It was fun, I'd do it all over again too. lol

04 TJ- Short Bus. It's got some stuff.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

SJC-ATL, round trip, six days.

Return trip with a 2,500# weight penalty (box trailer,) that I hardly knew was there.

SJC-IND is common - I have family there. Probably start doing SJC-ATL again as well, since my kid sister is now in Georgia.
