    Be safe traveling down here to NC. This week is going to be in the high 70's to low 80's.

    Made it down here, almost 10 hours on the road. Didn't hit any traffic until we were coming out of DC, a bit more around Richmond. Car rode like a dream, tighter than it's been in years. Splurged on new tires as well. Nothing fancy, cheap Firestones, sorry I don't have time to start a tire debate thread :D

    Get to drive back tomorrow, rented a chevy Malibu. Lucky us, it's got a satellite radio:thumbs:

    And today I get a phone call. In tears, she tells me she swerved away from a car coming at her and hit a sign. She's OK:))), still waiting on word about the car :(

    Well, she's back. Flew down Saturday, drove back Sunday. Virginia traffic was ridiculous, NYC not a whole lot better, took close to 12 hours to drive.The Ol' CR-V chugged along just fine. Transmission still makes a bit of shudder when taking off from a stop, might look deeper into that.

    Rolled into the driveway 30 miles shy of the 250K mile mark. :D

    Rustproofing might be quite overengineered to withstand the salt mist in Japan :D2

    But anyway, I don't understand why Hondas have such a high oil consumption.

    I'm at least partially blaming the fact that you have to take the front of the car off to change the PCV valve :ohnoes:
