    Dry run for The Epic Drive (kinda)

    Really the 2nd drive of the year, but this one was further (about 12 miles ) Still running a bit of gas out of the car so I can attempt to find and fix my fuel tank leak that keeps me from topping off the tank.

    That's the plan. Kolton might be riding with Tony Serno during the days to lighten the load a bit. I tried convincing Jenn to drive the 95, but she wants nothing to do with driving either of them.

    I have thought about the Power Tour and I figure this will be a good test. My biggest concern with the Power Tour is time walking around the show field, I know the drive time will be fine.
