Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Cocktails on the USS Midway were great, though the dinner was dreadful.

We hit the road from San Diego at 9:30 yesterday morning, wearing the watch I wore at dinner... And I realized today I shouldn’t set the day of week without wearing glasses.

We took the 5 to the 101 to stay along the coast and then cut through to 46/41 to Bakersfield on the other side of the grapevine to meet back up with the faster-moving I5.

Turns out, those bastards closed a very long stretch and rerouted traffic - semis and all - through tiny rural stop-sign controlled streets. It was 105F and a stop sign backed up for 4 miles. When we rolled home at 9:30pm - we (me, wife, oldest daughter, and the dog) all understood that twelve hours in any car - even one you love - is way too damn long.

Thankfully, the car ran great - a/c and all - no troubles. Most importantly, we experienced no failures to proceed with our 46 year old classic.

A couple thousand miles of use have identified 2 things that need to be remedied:
1. There is a faint transient rattle that nobody else hears… but I hear it, damn it. Pretty sure the transmission cooler lines need to be tightened down;

and

2. I lost a damn wheel cover [“hub cap”] somewhere on the beat to hell highway 101. That’s going to be a pain in the ass and require I work with 3 different specialists (source, paint, pinstripe) to rectify. Still, in the grand scheme of things, easy to fix.

Did you run into a faux aviator flying a SLUF(F) while channeling maverick?
I understand he spends a lot of time there. :mrgreen:
