Totally forgot to mention that while on my trip to VT I re-learned and learned a couple things.
A – I re-learned that 3rd gear maxes out at 90. Nifty
B – I re-learned that patience is virtue
C – I learned that there ARE roads in VT that have heavy traffic. WHO KNEW!?
D – I learned that when you wash your car it is possible to have ALL the scenarios happen during the same day. A bird crapped on the left fender. It began to rain withing minutes of me washing my car. I then drove through 3 different storms adding to the insult. Lastly, I was lucky enough to drive through various large puddles adding even more an insult. Oy.
E – I learned that 4th gear maxes out at 120. Nifty
F – I re-learned that driving alone for more than an hour or two gets to be pretty damn boring. <- meaning -> out
