Hello Robert,

Do you think she'll make 1,800 miles to Dallas, Texas?
How well does it behave when cruising at 85 mph? 
Wondering if I could make the trip back here in two
days, stopping over around Albuquerque, NM, hmm...  

I'll just have to see if I can arrange for myself or
someone to get out there to CA within your time
