Comrads: many thanks to Dave for instigating last weeks blat!
Hands down, the 12hrs and 350mi Saturday was the most time I've spent in my birkin in one day. I set out driving through heavy fog all the way to Lexington. Despite the low visibility, this was the coolest drive i've had in months.
After a cup of joe and brekkie to start the day we headed out, starting with the kitten.
We next followed scenic back roads towards Richmond, until encountering techical difficulties.

After gasing up and refuling on Nathan's famous candy bars. We headed south to follow rt 89 through the mountains.
Keeping things intersting, my engine developed a concerning knock by the second leg of our trip. After everything checked out during a roadside inspection we continued through McKee and back to Lexington.
Further inspection confirmed the knocking was my sump guard's agony after taking one for the team on the back roads.
