Ted, thanks for taking the trips I couldn't this year. We had hopes to go to Montana and do the Road to the Sun drive, but not this year...

Ted--
If you were to just manage 1,145 miles directly south, instead of running around PNW, you'll be able to join the San Gabriel Valley Roadsters!
Just this week alone you surpass 2,000 miles. Heatwave is suppose to let up this coming week so it will be with a high of the mid eighties all of next week. Just a thought. :-)
