    I usually travel with in my 4Runner. It's just better equipped for the type of travel we usually do. The 4Runner was/is in pieces for more upgrades, so we decided to give the "Hi-C" an extra 3800 miles of travel. I'll be honest I wasn't positive it was a great idea, but in the end it was fun and sooo much cheaper than traveling in the 4Runner, but you probably already knew that. Anyway the route was a pretty straight shot down I-80 from Dixon, CA to Omaha, NE and back. Mostly to see family but we did get some photography stops in as well. Here's a few of the Hi-C in action:

    Random stop to pick some tumble weed out of the grill. I was not driving at the time lol

    [​IMG]
    Ditto and Ditto. At least the clouds were cool. With all the California wild fires, it was nice to see something other than haze.

    Hay Market area of Lincoln Nebraska. C had never seen so much brick living in CA its whole life.

    [​IMG]
    having a cultural moment in downtown Omaha, Ne

    [​IMG]
    Doing "city car" things in downtown Omaha. Then we moved it a level lower and waited for the storm that had produced hail elsewhere to pass. lol

    [​IMG]
    Obligatory "C Salt" photo from the Bonneville salt flats on the way home. Hey Speed Week was just ramping up so we had to stop by and dip the Toyo's in some salt! No they weren't ready for timed runs. Yes I probably would have done it.

    [​IMG]
    Yeah I snapped more than one photo. It's not everyday we get out here.

    Back to the CA smoke filled skies. Neither of us breathes as well here!


    If you haven't gotten your fill of Hi-C, the rest of the photos are up here:

    Looks like a fun trip :).

    I did a similar thing in escaping the smoke but flew to PA instead. 6 out of the 7 days it rained. Here’s 2 of those days:

    Returned Wednesday and the air quality is much better ;).

    Thanks for sharing your trip(y).

    It's really a shame neither of us could bring some rain back with us!

    My folks were saying the same thing;).

    While out in PA, there was significant localized flooding and the Susquehanna was about to crest within feet of overtopping it’s banks:(.

    But between the snow in the winter months and then rain during the summer, cabin fever can run rampant :oops:.

    Hopefully for you it was just hail and not tornadoes to accompany it(y).

    Nothing that bad in Nebraska. Just enough to make for some cool skies and bring the smoke level down. Yes before the first rain it was hazy all the way over there as well.

    Thanks, everyone thought I was nuts when I wanted the orange one, but they've since come around. I have got a few compliments on the whole car and the color in particular during this trip.

    I really enjoyed this post and also peeked at some of those other builds. From what I could see of your shop, it reminds me of my son's garage. He's a Honda / Mitsu fan though, so that's about all you'll find there.

    I would like to ask about your fog lights. Would you happen to remember where you got them from?

    Thank you.

    I've had my share of Hondas and even a few Mitsubishis in the past as well. You never know what may come home next lol.

    Fog lights are Sypder Auto or something like that. I grabbed them off of ebay, but they're available in a few different places. Get The LED Out – Most Designs That's got all the details of my install and which bulbs etc.
