    Today , 35 deg F , wind E15 ( side wind ). 15.4 miles , 63.98 MPG. I'm getting more familiar with this route.
    And when you start to think of a road as "yours" , it makes it easier to do anything you want (hypermile).
    Also , very little traffic at 4:40 AM on a Sat morning.

    Several trips again today with the family.
    34.3 - 3.5 mi. to church this morning. Palm Sunday and baptism Sunday so the place was packed. Caused traffic congestion for almost a mile back. Good problem to have though. It's the one time I don't mind too much. Not many churches nowadays get to say they have traffic jams of people trying to get in.
    49 - 3.5 mi. home.
    42.5 - 2.6 mi. over to visit mom.
    55.9 - 2.5 mi. home.
    45 - .9 mi. back out to grocery store.
    52.7 - 1 mi. home.

    Soon. Still no specific delivery time. Motor vehicle registry was shut down state-wide the end of last week for system changes. New driver's license physical change coming due to tightening security requirements. The car dealer said they had lots of prep work to do on the car. Fluids, charging the battery and a road test. I hate waiting. :)
