      I’ve done one of these!

      My other Coastal Range stories are hidden in HushyPushy or SoS threads. This one is the crazy one though.

      In addition to date, member, car and thread can we add location? That would give the area of where these road trips are, ie. CA SoCal to Norcal. Then maybe the order can be organized by starting location or country/state.

      I asked him if he could rehost the pictures a couple of years ago, I’m glad they still are online. These were definitely epic trips!

      I thought about adding location but often times it was already in the title, and there's many ways of listing it (just the cities? just the states? etc.). But I can try to standardize it if people really want to see it.

      Keeping the order chronological is still the best way as it's the quickest for people to see the newest thread in case they missed it. Burying a new thread in the middle when someone did a trip through Nebraska isn't going to get the most attention.

      I remember (but cannot find) a thread from at least 10 years ago... 2 guys drove a friend's B5 Audi S4 from NYC to somewhere west coast. They sealed the whole car in blue painter's tape, left little blue tape S4 tags all over the place. It's an old thread but a great one worthy of the list if it's not blackholed for some reason.

      Just read through that whole thing. Nice that the pictures still show up for the most part. Pretty funny road trip story. Someday I hope to have the time to make as many stops. Usually when I was driving cross country I didn't want to make time for that kind of thing because I just wanted to get to my destination. My wife and I got a picture of that PT Cruiser with the moose on top in Wisconsin when we went to MT on our honeymoon.

      I didn’t do a thread or take hardly any pics but I just did 3hrs north of GB to the border of the UP and then stopped for a few days. Absolutely gorgeous roads (for Wisconsin) through the chequamegon-nicolet national forest. Gravel detours and dirt logging roads until you barf. The opportunities for fishing and mountain biking were literally endless, I could spend a whole summer and still only see a minute fraction of the area.

      Thanks for posting these. Looking back at my own trip feels surreal and really makes me want to go back up to Banff again. This time I think I'd rent a Sprinter or something.
