Not today, but one of the more fun sections of my drive home. Southern California freeways often suck, but the Waze app takes you off road. This is one of my alternate routes home. Lots of twists and turns that are a lot more than what the video indicates. Even so I always catch traffic, usually with out pushing hard. This day traffic was pretty open so I had fun.[share_youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=196c4IMkjBk&t=50s[/share_youtube]

Well let me give this another try. Since I drive my Corvair almost every day, and I have a dash cam I get lots of shots of where I drove my Corvair. Here is a typical day. Driving to work in the morning and heading home in the evening. My wife and I have driven cross country many times and the sight of a mattress has brought us many laughs. We have seen many ways of transporting and not transporting them and often ending up like these samples here. The drive home shows the typical perils of SoCal driving. Since returning to Cali, all three of my driving vehicles have been involved in an accident. Pretty intense year and a half.

Gave my 2 year old a turn at the wheel. She loved it! Just wish my driving age son had some interest!

Had a beautiful Saturday here in SoCal, so I took the Corvair up the hill behind my house. A few miles drive up a winding mountain road takes me to an overlook I look up at from my backyard all the time. I took a number of pictures and one person took a picture of me with the car. Why ruin a good picture by putting me in it. Here you can see about three minutes of the drive up.

Looks like a few hours of self isolation with my Corvairavirus.
