The following is a collection of text messages Kaibeezy sent from the road:
250-ish miles, 4:00 elapsed - dinner stop at Cool Hand Luke's in Santa Maria - mumble mumble copyright infringement? - ordering the famous tri-tip, will send photo
Travel has been basically dull - minimal traffic, perfect conditions - verrrry few DT-type cars - an E30, a Beetle convertible, a 70s Ford family truckster, a brick, an Impala SS, a 60s Ranchero, and that's really it - want to be invisible? - a Honda Pilot would do it, seen more than expected
Roadmaster is serene, effortless on this road - gas mileage is going to be surprisingly good - we can do a quizzer on it
Sadly, no one seems to be noticing - no thumbs-ups or smiles - just dull cars and their cargo droning along - self driving cars can't come soon enough to end all the misery - we gearheads can build a fancy 'lectronic simulator, strap ourselves in and go forever - head in a jar, whatever
There's my pile of meat - ping ya later
7 hours and 15 minutes later, Kaibeezy arrived at DT's "studio" to record a few episodes of the Daily Turismo Radio Show...any guesses on the fuel economy to the nearest tenth of a gallon? Drop your best guess in the comments below.
