It took me 6 hours to go ~165 miles once. On my way back to Cal Poly after winter break. Some of the LA freeways over the mountains were closed due to snow, but I was no where near there. EVERYBODY was driving the 101 that night. That was rough being on my own. I got in at midnight and was so tired I just went right to bed. I think I went the whole way in first and second gear.

That's been my general experience, too. But then again we're not metrosexual guys, so Macy's-type shopping should only take us 5 minutes. Wife is planning on going to the Grove tomorrow.

2nd gear is good for about 60-70 mph in the 930 IIRC.

To be honest... I was just paying my Macy's card off. I really need to stop paying in the perfume department though. Man, I stink like a two bit whore for a while.

Scrub tech, Melissa, is coming along as well. She thinks you're "kinda cute."

Not with any great length, but full of purpose.

Went for a nice run in the 930 today.
A bloke I met when restoring my car came along with his turbo.
We drove along the coast to a place called Flinders.
Sun was out and a nice time was had.

Its a good reminder to run side by side with a mild 930.
Makes me respect just how fast this old hot rod of mine is.

On the iPhone, there is the Facebook App, and the Facebook messenger app... The later seems a bit redundant, and I've never used it. Tonight I'm talking with a friend and see a location blip next to her message, click it and within seconds I have driving directions...

I now have the address for someone I didn't previously...

I am sure you have rock climbing or diving friends who are guys.

So, did you get a date out of it?
