Big smile It's not the destination that makes the trip worth while. It does not matter where you GO, it's the DRIVE that makes the difference! Some day, when the rest of us do not have a "WORK" destination, we can go with you just to Drive and enjoy. Cool

That means I have to back it out of the carport and then drive it back in?  

I think I will wait I would have to get dress to early to do that.  But you guys that have to commute to work let me know how it is. 

I have forgotten it been over a year now that I work from home. Handshake

Looks like I won't be driving the vette to work on Friday -- too much fire in Colorado Springs, instead it be going to Fairplay (50 miles west) for storage away from fires.  Firestorms are sure interesting to watch come down a mountain side and collide with civilization.  Ouch

Man, I don't blame you a bit! I'd want my cars as far away from something like that as possible! Stay safe, Man!

It hit 104 in Indy today and is supposed to hit 101 tomorrow, but I'm still going to drive the car.  I think I'll keep the top down...
