A Short Road Trip....

....for me, that is, to a family reunion at the birthplace of daBenz's original owner in southwestern Wisconsin. 1214mi over five days, with the longest day being only 543mi. The day of taxi driving in the hills and hollows killed the average trip mileage (33.4mpg) - the "road" tanks were 35mpg and 36mpg with both against the wind. Used about 4oz of engine oil for the trip.

Hopefully I'll get copies of the pics of two of the great-great grandchildren with the car - they liked the "cool" horn and figured out the seatbelts faster than the adults!
