Our journal across the country to take delivery of our C7 named Star begins with our flight from California to Nashville and then drive to Bowling Green by Sunday night, 4/27. Staying at the Homestead 1869 bed and breakfast for Sunday and Monday night. Taking delivery on 4/28. We are taking almost two weeks to drive home.

Star's specs are LRG, Z51, 3LT kalahari /kalahari vert, carbon fiber, suade seat inserts, micro fiber trim, MSRC.

Elegant your right. I haven't gotten much sleep in the past few days. The anticipation is almost overwhelming.

I look forward to sharing our trip home back to California. We intentionally have nothing planned but drive and see America for a couple weeks.

That sounds like a very memorable adventure, and I'm envious.

I also appreciate the build specs on Star - it's a very classy combination of colors and options.

Congrats. Our delivery is on 14th. We are staying at the Spongie Acres. We plan on taking the "long" way back to Austin over the 5 days we have.

Wish we had time to back track to the Smokies, BlueRidge,Dragon, Natchez Trace etc but we don't. Did that three times in the C6 though.

See the USA in your brand new Chevrolet buddy! Will be in your shoes in 24 more days, but I'm heading east after delivery and will be trying the Tail of the Dragon, then the Cherohala Skyway, finally taking the Moonshiner 28 as a shortcut over towards the Blue Ridge Parkway for a more leisurely ride home. All roads never taken by me.

Thanks! We're sitting in the 737 at the airport and I have so many thoughts on the days ahead, I can't really explain how it feels.

I'm almost exhausted from over thinking details. I'm at a point I have to relax and enjoy the ride.

Thanks Rodney. And Michael, reading stuff like this from you and Smokey and others has really given me something to look forward to, probably more than any event in my life. Try to take time to post when you can.

We made it to Bowling Green! The weather forecast for tomorrow is supposed to suck, but it's hard to put a damper on this.

Yeah man, watching that crap weather roll in from the West. Should be hitting us in NJ Tue-Wed. Good news is it is heading my way, away from you eventually! Try to get some sleep. Good luck with that, lol.

Have an awesome day tomorrow! Can't wait to read all about it.

We'll be watching on the Webcam. Chances are good that once they load the cars in there in the morning, we'll be able to pick yours out. ;)

Drive safe home,

Thanks! I hope it drives well in tornadoes 'cause that's what looks like is coming on the radar map! It's been a real lightening storm all night long. Not used to this being from SoCal.
I guess if a tornado starts I'll have to just outrun it!

In all seriousness, our hearts go out to the families that lost loved ones in the tornados last night.
