Driving fun, and birthday parties

Went down to PA this weekend for my grandmother's 90th birthday party.  I haven't seen her in a couple years, and I must say she's looking fabulous.  She is moving around great, and is sharp as a tack.  I have lots of pictures and movies, which I'll put on line when I get home.  I also got to see a lot of my extended family that I haven't seen in a while.  Some of whom were my grandmother's great-great grandchildren.  That's super cool.  In my grandmothers current very stable state, the great-great grandkids will actually be old enough to know her (they are 6 or so now).

Anyway, the birthday party was in the middle of no-where PA (Friedensburg)... the good news is that I got to drive on this road to get to the interstate.  227HP, summer tires and a 5 speed manual transmission, and I was having all sorts of fun.  Hills, turns, passing, not much traffic, no cops.  It's almost tempting to do it again, except it's 4 hours away.
