    I took a weekend trip to Boston
    Saturday - Quincy market, North end, little Italy, China town
    Sunday - Quincy market for a quick breakfast then the Aquarium and 3D IMAX - totally amazing and finally Little Italy for dinner & take home pastries and then home.

    We had a great time except for my engine light coming on. Rough low idle at times. I'll check it out tonight for what code.

    i need to do my fuel filter.. feelin a bit sluggish of late.. i did check my diffs and trans today.. and gave the vx a very extensive detailing.. so detailed actually that my neighbor came over to take photos! he said his sister couldnt get over the shine so she wanted photos

    also rotated my tires (and rotated the full size spare in now that its the same tread depth as all the rest)

    my borla exhaust tip came in the mail though! its supposed to "mellow" the exhaust and help with low end torque.. im a bit skeptical but it is borla, so i do trust the name.. we shall see, hopefully by saturday itll be installed

    Today i took the day off & had a long 4 1/2 hours drive to binghampton,upstate NY to visit friends.

    1rst time ever i drove around 400 + miles in a single day,my VX performed as it was built for,sweapping thru the I-80 & the I-380 lanes at 80 MPH & having some fun changing lanes whilst cornering near the delaware water gap;I was concern about the oil burn,yes i losed about 1/4 of a quart;Had my brother-in-law to be with me as "co-pilot" although he dropped to sleep many times heading back home,hell, a two hours traffic due road work narrowing all the lanes to one extended the time to 6 hours heading back to NYC from binghampton.

    Beside the traffic every thing was perfect,three guys on a hyundai 'TIBURON' followed me about 35 miles probably trying to figured out "WTF" is that.

    So getting ready to meet fellow Vx'ers on july.'ll be working the following weeks to find the right spot to host all the attending members.

    Yeah ! I figure If I want to run some one or something over while backing up the camera will give me an extra edge . I picked up a little pioneer camera, and a 4.5 inch boyo monitor earlier today. I hope they do the job . Also , I just got word of a used mac mini . I might buy it and install it in the VX .
