Well my JNC friends, come June 1st I will be flying out to South Carolina to pick up my Wagon, giving it a tune up and then driving it all the way back to the PNW. For those that didn't know, I Just arrived stateside 3 days ago from my deployment to Afghanistan, in which case, the car has been residing in the hands of a good friend out there, whom also picked the car up for me when I bought it while still deployed. I'll be hitting up the tail of the dragon on the way out of the Carolinas. Round two on that twisty road for me, first time was on my last road trip in the AWD.
8) :mrgreen:

This is the route I'll be taking.

If I knew you were passing through my way in the evening time, I'd meet up with you. I live a mile from I-20 just East of Atlanta.

Arrived in SC around 830pm EST, 2hrs late as DC didn't seem to have a clue as to what they were doing. Tomorrow morning I'll go check it out and snap some pics, crazy feeling because it's the first time I've seen the car in person!

Good luck! You should film short segments to document your trip, and then put them all together. Have a safe trip!
