Wife and I are departing in about 30-50 minutes in the 66 convertible with the top down all the way.

Funny how a 6 passenger car becomes a two-three person car with the top down and the back seat filled with luggage, a cooler, and other things for a two-night stay!

Hopefully there isn't a mad rush for the wash hose on Saturday morning...I plan on being out around 7:30-8am to clean up the '85.

I'm at the Sheraton in rm 611. Got here at 1pm. 124 miles on just over 1/4 tank of gas. Probably 16-18mpg.

There are two hoses at the south end of the building. You should get up at dawn (6am) to guarantee hose access. I just ćleaned my front end and I'm done.

Sitting in the Heraklion airport (bring back memories, Mike?) where I finally have decent internet.

Have a great time and you guys will have to fill me in next week at Woodward.

Just about to call it a night at 1:30am...pulled in to the parking lot just after midnight. Busy border crossing and a little navigation faux pas prolonged the drive somewhat, not to mention the '85 didn't want to leave! Suffice it to say, I won't be up at the crack of dawn. With two hoses I'll take my chances around 8am.

Yes that does bring great memories, we staged out of there to fly in and out of Rwanda in the mid 90's. See you next week.
