Detroit to various places in Colorado and back. Various places along the way in South Dakota and Missouri, too. Camping mainly with biking, kayaking, and hiking tossed in.
Well I've been having the idea popping in my head that I will be planning on heading from West Palm Beach, Fl to Sturgis, South Dakota for the annual bike event that happens every 1st week in August. I'll be on a Triumph Street Triple R heading to Boulder, Colorado first then up to South Dakota.
Any one else on the lounger planning some long distance trips? Chime in

I was pretty close to picking up a nicely sorted CVPI to turn into a road-trip-mobile for our trip out west to visit family this July, but it looks like we'll end up flying instead due to the missus' schedule. I think it would have been a lot of fun.

Just drove from Las Vegas to Texas up to central Illinois. I'll probably go up to Wisconsin, then Minneapolis, and then back to Vegas later this summer as well. I might also be driving to Florida and back from Illinois as well.

In terms of road trips, yes: planning a trip from here down south, to Freiburg, then a stop at the Bodensee (Lake Constance), over and down through Garmisch into Tirol for a couple nights somewhere near Innsbruck, through the Brenner Pass into Sued-Tirol in Italy, some nice, windy mountain passes thrown in, with Lake Garda as the final destination. Planning to take about 9 days for this trip. Hope to have the Boxster here so taking it instead of the GTI could at least be considered...
If I take 2 days of vacation on July 2nd & 3rd, I get 9 days off. Thinking about finally doing the LA to SF trip along PCH. But I definitely need to get the APR RSC exhaust cuz the drone in my current S4 exhaust is driving me nuts!

Nothing too great; just an 8-9hr trek and back in 3 weeks. I made the journey without issue in my ol' '97 cirrus(don't hate- it got the job done) 2 years ago and believe that the accent should make it successfully. I'm just not really looking forward to it as the seats aren't optimal for long distance travel. Of course i really want to take the other car but, you know, lucas and fuel costs and all that.
