I'm off to Delaware Friday afternoon to pick up my newest addition.  Cool

Anyone interested in riding up to help drive back? We have room for at least one more.
We're planning on leaving the Greenville International Airport by 2:20pm & making it thru Charlotte before 4pm. We'll drive an hour or so past the Bay Bridge Tunnel before stopping at a motel for a little rest before picking up the bus Saturday morning & headding south! We hope to make it home by dark. We're planning on using Sunday as a cushion to avoid taking unnecessary chances.

Lou has prepped the ole girl for the ride, he even topped off the fuel tank!  Shocked What a guy! Just a minor issue with the brake lights is all that's left.

Let me know, first come first served  Cheesy . A chance like this doesn't come along every day.  Grin

This one is different than the last 4, I'm having to actually pay for one for a change  Shocked

Therefore, this one isn't an orphan . . .

But, then again, this one actually runs  Grin So that too is new for me  Grin  Grin  Grin

Way ta go Kyle! As great as it is that you have the orphanage, & the ability to start the first self supported Scenic Museum I knew sooner or later the urge to actually drive one of those beautiful beasts would finally the better of you! I'm proud to hear your gonna be able to drive the newest member of the family home! Wow this is so lucky to be adopted by you and the orphanage! LOL!

Be sure to document the trip so the rest of us can see what we missed. That will be a fun adventure.

Gosh Kyle, I'd heard the rumor on the GM grapevine that you'd done it again but I passed it off as just rumor..I didn't think that you'd gone completely off your trolley!  But this one runs!  That vindicates you and restores my faith in ya.

But will you know how to act, sitting behind the wheel of a Sceni with the engine running and the open road ahead of you? Would that I could be a little mouse on this trip....but then I never did sleep good sitting up anyway.

Drive safely and enjoy the ride.

On that bus he got plenty of practice with the dead throttle starts.  Grin

Are you gonna bring him up? Alligent (sp?) Air has reasonable rates from Tampa to Greenville - $125 round trip this weekend last I checked . . .   Grin

Kyle,

 just a few observations.......

 1.   Possession is 9/10 the law?    By the looks Patrick has possession of the orphan.
 2.   Fly up? well shut my mouth get that thing running and let Patrick drive up (geter done)
 3.   As any well run Orphanage will tell you when your orphan has a good home it is emotionally traumatic
       to be moving the orphan from the south to the north.

  Have a safe trip
