First long trip

I took my first long trip in Camaro this weekend, I have been to St. Louis a few times which is about 3 hours.

We left Friday night after work and after staying the night about 8 hours later and getting up early we arrived in Ladysmith WI about noon on Sat morning. About a 12 hour drive.

Was very happy with the ride, very comfortable. I checked fuel mileage when I filled, I never got below 24.5 miles per gallon and got as high as 26.2 there and back to Springfield Mo. Was averageing about 76-78 miles per hour with cruise.

Saw a few Camaro's on the way there and back, but none while I was in that little one horse town. Got all the eyeballs and thumbs up from all the kids and some large adult kids.

Just thought I would share.

Thought about taking some while driving... but I was a good boy and didn't distract myself.
