Great story, love a good road trip!I pulled an @EmCel
todayyesterday, to do something FOR my mustang, not TO it - well just yet.
Drove ~200 miles to Irving PA (4.5hrs) on superslab to pick up an orange hood from a M6G'er. Then met another M6G'er who lives just a few minutes away just to put face to forum handle and shake hands - and distract him away from domestic duties for a few short minutes...
Then I drove 300 miles back home over the curviest 2-lane I could find in my F150. Happened to see a POI on my GPS that said Frank Llyod Wright designed house, went up the side of the mountain, paid the $9 to step foot on the grounds, and came away very unimpressed. Kentuck Knob was it's name. Now the VIEW 200 steps thru the trees, now THAT was lovely and worth the price of admission, but can't be seen from the house itself. WTH? Is ol' Frank any good at his job? Or since he designs screwball shapes, other people see it and chalk it up to greatness when in reality he is just an idiot? In the same way Picasso and Van Gogh can't draw for crap, but are "acclaimed" by the intelligencia?
A few other contributions to the scenery.
open-air rock fort - take off armor to squeeze in or swing over 6' high wall.

30ft high Roman Onager left behind from the last campaign in Penn's Wood- needs a few parts, and a team of slaves to assemble.

A modest view of slow-growing corn. On both sides of the ribbon of pavement you see below were young maples planted at precise intervals and of uniform size.
On the only straight section of US50 30 miles west of Romney WV the entire rescue squad turned out to drag a car out of the creek 20 ft off the road and 10ft down.
I stopped by a road-side 'convenience store' which was incredibly badly stocked in food-stuffs, but had $30,000 worth of inventory in bows, cross-bows, arrows, modern rifles and shotguns in the back third of the store. Every vehicle that pulled up for the 20 minutes that I ate a questionable roast beef hoagie wrapped in saran wrap was either missing bodywork, emissions device, or matching tires, but worse was the utter disregard for wash and wax.
A bit north of McHenry MD I picked up some road-side corn and heirloom tomato.
How bad were they before. I’m thinking I’m going to be doing the same to mine soon but mine are pretty bad considering I rarely wash them due to the fact that I don’t want to get my wash mitt dirty and constantly telling myself I’ll get to them at the end.Pulled my Roush tips off and gave them a good polish. Bought a Mothers Power Cone and it made short work of it. Came out pretty well I think
