    August 28th - 30th it is then! My truck is for sale right now, I've had a few calls on it already. Who knows what the future may hold! But there's a good chance Ruthie will be going, so we'll be driving one way or another for sure.

    lol... easily be 90 and high humidity?

    That is good for convertible weather.... I've gotten used to the heat since I've lived in FL/GA. Our Summers routinely stay in the high 90's, 100's and even 110ish.... so down into the 90's is a nice change.

    Hopefully the A/C would be working though, just alot of things on the car to fix, most of the things are under $250/pop, which is fine, except for the suspension/brakes, I'd want the suspension address before such a trip.

    Who is along the way? this is the route according to Map Quest,

    Nice - if we do any motorsport event I will try to make this meet. Even better if it's an AutoX! Either weekend works for me!

    Rick, most of us live west of the city, not south.

    Chad, just saw a commercial for Southwest Airlines. They are soon to be starting flights from Minneapolis to Midway for $49.

    Brian, you will HATE the way I drive. My cars are lucky if they ever see 70 and if its doin 80 someone has stolen my car.

    Interesting; they've always promoted Manchester and Providence as convenient alternatives to Logan.

    I've done both Manchester and Logan on trips to NH, and Manchester is so much easier. On my last trip in 2002, I was using frequent flier miles, so I had to go into Logan. The Big Dig was still under construction, so getting in and out of Logan to I-93 north was a PITA.

    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    The question is why would anyone fly. Most people don't keep a car more than a couple years so why would anyone want to fly an airplane probably built in the seventies or eighties ?

    It might do 101. I've done 134, and it still had about 1500 rpm.

    Northwest is still flying DC-9s built in the Seventies, but most airplanes in use today aren't more than 20 years old. Airlines have been retiring older, less fuel efficient planes at a rapid clip in the past few years.

    There's nothing inherently wrong with those planes other than the loud engines in the DC-9s, MD-80s and 737-200s; of those three, only the MD-80 is still used in large numbers, mostly AA and Delta. But Rick, as an aircraft mechanic, you should know about pressurization cycles and the stresses those put on the airframes, especially planes that make frequent, short flights, as was the case with the then 19-year old Aloha 737 that lost part of its fuselage in 1988:



    OK, I know I've gone but I'm interested in almost anything with wheels or wings.
