NORM!!
ahem, sorry.. I'm in. If for nothing else than to see
1) if you can keep up your post pace away from a keyboard and mouse, and
2) if that Aztek can really make it to DW. Back when they first came out, I'd pull up next to one in my Firebird and think "These two vehicles CAN'T be from the same company!" Tell me, Norm; did Pontiac build excitement into them, too? I mean, without the rocket launcher.

Hope y'all have a safe journey and GREAT trip!

ETA.. missed the front page by -><- THAT much

Okahumpka. First stop on turnpike, but I can't wake DW and the dds for donuts.



It's 3:50 AM. What's their problem?

Well, we drove on into WDW and stopped for coffee at waffle house. Not as good as Dunkin Donuts, but caffeine helps.



5:30 AM and arrived at CR. The dds found the tv immediately.

Glad you found the way over. Watch out for some of the snarkiness.

I was cruising at 80 at less than 2.5 RPM. I ran it up to 90 a few times with no problem. It has a big V6 & a lot of horsepower. But, your firebird and my Aztek end up in the same place as GM killed the Pontiac division. My posts are mostly cell phone and iPad.

After a 30 minute nap at the CR lobby, charging cell phone, and a cafe mocha, it is time for breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. We rode the monorail past the new GF DVC, but I missed a photo op. I'll get one later. While I don't plan to buy points there, it will be cool to stay there one day (maybe).
