another nice long weekend's drive ...
Had a 'Summer Launch' party to attend in the Sierra foothills, so took off yesterday morning in Die Gelbe Gefahr and rolled up there. Beautiful weather, lovely roads, and a great party. Stayed in Murphys overnight with my partner, very comfy hotel. Up early this morning, a nice breakfast at a great little cafe nearby, then down and across the Central Valley again. Managed to route my way around all the Sunday traffic and it was even nice enough out to do it top down about 2/3 of the way.
The SLK inspires me to go on these short trips. It runs flawlessly and extremely comfortably throughout. I can only think wistfully of how nice a new one might be, but I'm very happy I went for this one.
Now if only Mercedes can come up with the catalytic converter I ordered at the end of April! I'm getting a little tired of it sounding like a 1957 Chevy with a broken muffler when I start it up ... !
