A few pics from my trip

My girlfriend and I took a little trip to Wyoming in my Jetta the last week. We made it home safely despite some jack azz rear ending me. (pics and story below)
I ended up driving 3800 miles total, most of it was highway miles. I averaged 44 mpg for the whole trip

I used about 86 gallons of diesel averaging $2.47/gal costing a lilttle over $200 bucks. The same trip would have cost over $600 in the SD.

I had alot of fun, I met Nick and Craig in Colorado Springs and had a beer with them.
(I'm the weird looking guy not paying attention on the left Nick is in the middle, and Craig is on right)



I got to drive my uncles 1975 Bricklin out to eat one night.
None of the pictures of my driving it turned out though so here is what they look like.
It was a pretty cool car, it even had a ford motor in it




I spotted this on I-80, Im sure it was completely safe, but I didnt stick around it very long




Here are a few random pics






I thought these looked really cool





Me and my girl




I had just got of the interstate in Salina KS, I was on the off-ramp behind a Chevy Tahoe that was sitting at the stop sign. All of a sudden this truck just slams into me. When it hit me it caused my car to hit the Tahoe .

The jetta held up pretty well IMO












It shoved the right side of the Tahoe's bumper in pretty good, It looked worse in person than the picture shows.
