OOoooo a tunnel!
Probably most interesting thing on 80 so far...
Almost to Wendover
Sitting at Montego Bay parking lot with hood cracked open
Zed hanging out with friends
Off to the salt flats!
You can see I covered up some holes with tape...somewhat useless but it made me feel better
Back on the road to Utah
Final destination....the great JDM LEGENDS!!!!
In all it was a great trip to go on with with my friends. Unfortunately (probably lucky) my wife flew out to join us on the 2nd day of the trip, so she missed out on the glory of hwy 80 on the way there. I'm thankful I also got to meet some very cool people. Eric from JNC and his friend Jan. It was pretty cool to be there to see Eric pickup his Hako. Also of course the men behind JDM Legends, Eric & Ryan. All of you guys made the trip that much more awesome!
According to my Zed, we traveled 1,685 miles in the four day trip. I was honestly skeptical that I might not make it back or at least have some trouble during the trip. However the zed drove the entire trip without any mechanical troubles. I even averaged 25mpg for most of the trip...with the exception of around Utah my carbs disagreed with the elevation and ended up around 19mpg in the area.
I have a new respect for my Zed that I can't really explain without sounding cheesy haha. Listening to the awesome sound of the carbs the entire trip and hearing Eric's awesome stroked L helped make up my mind to stay with the L series. In all a great success and a ton of fun!
