    Looking good!

    We've missed you around here for the last couple of months, Roc - what have you been up to?

    Reminds me of the old Star Trek episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"...whatever you do - don't feed them and don't leave them together...

    Thank you, I've missed being here. Life got a bit nasty for a while, including an out-of-the-blue state of unemployment which came just as I was injured and a week before I was schedule to go back East for two weeks - a trip I couldn't get out of. After I got back, most of my free time was spent trying to find a new job. Very little driving and thus not much to report.

    I am thrilled to say that I have a fantastic new job, conveniently located just half a mile from where I had worked for the previous 4+ years. Found an alternate route home which has increased my trip mileage from 60 to high 80s! That is, until the cold and wind kicked in. Driving against the gale-force winds this evening, I only managed 75. Only. Gotta love this car!

    Sigh... I mean really. I've always used your Fuelly score as a kind of goal, but I can't work with that. :eek:

    Glad to hear you've landed back on your feet.

    Awww, shucks, and thank you, truly. Warms the cockles of my heart. I really did miss my extended C family.

    Oh, and here's a story from a week or two back...

    My mother-in-law, who drives the silver in that photo above, called me from a local casino to ask if I would come down and escort her from the casino to her car and follow her home. This was her way of telling me she'd hit relatively big and was carrying a large wad of cash.

    Of course, I went right down to get her and we pulled out of the parking lot one after another, me thinking "gee, this would be a great time for another C owner to be on the road, they'd spot 2-for-1." Not half a mile later, there's a Habanero waiting at a cross street! I rolled down my window and waved frantically, and both driver and passenger of the other car rolled down their windows and waved back! This was especially exciting for me because it's the first time another C driver has acknowledged me. I was grinning like an idiot the rest of the way home. Heck, I was more excited by the trifecta than I was about momma's win!

    What color are you driving? I've spotted quite a few out-of-town Cs lately. When possible, I try to note the state and last three digits of the plate.

    Our sudden winter will undoubtedly change that quite quickly. Some of my grill block material mysteriously disappeared, so I only have 3 out of 4 rows blocked now. I also discovered that if I take the main street for the first leg of my journey, instead of creeping up a slower (uphill) street, I get better mileage on the trip in.

    Still learning, and that's the fun of it, isn't it?

    I drive a silver grey C4 (Canadian equivalent) with British Columbia plates. We stayed at the Paris. We were in Vegas at the beginning of September. Our 8,000 Kilometers road trip is chronicled on the post Vernon Birman on Road trip located on the third or 4 th page of this blog.

    I'll be honest, I haven't really been trying that hard for awhile. I drive it how I drive it, on the routes that I drive it and it gives me US EPA type scores in return (ie. around 53 MPG).

    I've seen a couple of c's in traffic but they never seem to notice me. One was a guy who seemed to be out for a drive with his family and was more interested in the views and to be honest the only reason I was on that particular road was that I had an hour to kill and was taking myself on a scenic drive anyway. :whistle:

    The other day I was following a different one for a bit but it was going too slowly for me - I got the impression that they were possibly trying to accelerate away from lights without the ICE coming on. I moved myself in front of them for awhile but they had no interest in keeping up with me (using the top of the ECO range) so I left them behind.

    I managed 60 on the drive in, despite the cold weather - but then I had to go the long way as I had an early morning pickup before going to the office. The drive home netted me 77.1 :)
