yesterday i was working out how long UZIs trip to bulli brigade in the king panel would have taken
i thought a road trip to germany was long enough at around 8hrs!*
good luck for the trip! you won't be alone


jDOT is the driving fool. i've only done that trip 5 times. i think he's done it seven or eight. credit where credit is due!

+ 2 hours traffic in Philly. At least that's what I encountered, and that was a nice maxima rental car

good luck with the trip

Gonna miss this bus! Sounds like its in good hands if you're crazy enough to drive it back from PA in the dead of winter.
