[DML] Re: Gettysburg Caravan - Indy Lunch Stop



I probably due more long distance trips in my DeLorean than anybody.  400/500 miles is a 
breeze.  I have often done the 720 miles  from my home to Las Vegas.  600 of that is 
Interstate.  I also have a number of friends in an informal club called the DeLorean Touring 
Society and we do anywhere from 400 to 800 miles in a day, depending upon the roadas 
and speed limits.  

If you are able to pick up the parts rather quicly, a 660 mile trip should not be all that 
difficult.  However, having said all this, distance traveled is certainly a matter of personal 
preference.  I love to drive.  I also love to take road trips in the 
DeLorean.  But, I know many (almost all younger than me) who do not like long trips in the 
DeLorean.   Hmmmm, maybe it is a reverse age thing ;-)
