    In my case, you'd be losing the arm. Been to FL more than once and if I left a toothbrush there, it can stay. While it isn't precisely the same as Florida, I lived in SoCal for a number of years, both as a child and adult, and the "steady" weather has no draw from me at all. I will give the edge to California in the area of variety however, since you can go surfing in the morning in February and if your of a mind, hit the slopes in the afternoon for some skiing or boarding. I don't know of very many other places in the world where that can be done. All that aside, I prefer 4 seasons, even if I don't really care for shoveling snow from time to time.

    also you get in your buggy in the hottest part of the day (95%) and race it up the mountain cross the creek on your way to the snow!

    I love Florida and even spent a Christmas and New Years there near Cocoa Beach. Slept through the Storm of the Century in 93 and it didn't bother me one bit. I can deal with snow and extreme cold (worked outside for over 12 years) but c'mon man...sun, sand, surf is what I like. Plus, the coldest winter I've ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. :odd:. Ok, I've never had the pleasure of going to San Fran but I had to say that.

    I well remember a ride down HWY 18 out of the San Berdeaux mountains chasing one of these,

    on my '81 GS750.

    He went by me and I spent the rest of the downhill run trying to catch up. Didn't until we hit the bottom and he got stuck at a red light.

    I've got some really old celluloid generated pics of that bike. Maybe someday I'll get them scanned in somewhere so I can use it somehow.

    Right on. Hey, it's not for everyone. I've lived in many places myself. I was only just trying to make conversation. Lesson learned.

    No lesson to be learned here. You was makin' conversation, so I was conversatin' back. I was just in FL this past February and got to drive a convertible Camaro around Miami for a day. Jumped on a boat and hit the Bahamas for a few days, then dropped back in and putted around southern FL in a Charger for a bit. It wasn't a bad time. Just wasn't something I'd make a point to do again. Still wanting a Camaro though.

    The Camaro is made in Oshawa. I'd love to buy one and then drive it to Florida, for good. Had to put it out there.

    Those red things with the yellow buckets^ scare me.

    Just because it snowed in Calgary yesterday doesn't mean we're a frozen tundra all the time :p

    I'd love to try to generate a point to point similar to the Sea to Sky highway from Vancouver to Whistler with the course generator. From the south end, there's long wide open highway sections with long gentle curves, some really fun twisties as you start to go north, then some narrower tighter turns that would link together so well. Great road to drive, amazing views the entire way too.

    Coming form one who has been born and raised in Florida. I can tell you it blows. From the 95-97 degree temps with near 100% humidity in the summer, all the retarded drivers who turn their damn flashers on in the rain. If I had the chance to get the hell out of here I would.

    You know the irony of what you had said was exactly what I was thinking about SoCal. I've been to both L.A and San Diego. There are a lot of similarities. Miami is cool. South Beach is crazy. Sebastian inlet has some of the best surfing in Florida. As for mountains, you got me. I'd rather hang out at the 24 hours of Daytona or Sebring. After all hey the first Hooters is still up in Clearwater!

    To rich for my blood. I;d like just a 6.2 1LE still has magnetic ride control and is a hell of a lot cheaper.

    Last night during the Miata races I mentioned that my faithful automobile despising significant other bought me some new driving shoes on amazon.

    image.jpg They are Sebago Denton Driving shoes on amazon for 41 plus tax and free shipping. They, Sebago ( hand sewn in USA) also make the lime rock Driving shoe which appears to be identical except no tightening cord with cute bow. The rawhide cord actually has a function it snugs the shoe....but in a real car it would be a disaster just looking for the most inopportune moment to happen. Gee I can't understand why she suddenly got me these ( the day after I wore the somewhat worn ones to friends house to pick her up.)

    Soles are interesting but function well.

    @Falango It is a nice stretch of highway... Until you get caught in traffic at the ferry terminals! The fastest I've gone through there was a constant buck 40 in an old Chev Panel van with my grandpa in the passenger seat, then we hit Lions bay and had to slow down :p

    If you are anywhere near Tampa just give me a shout and I'll smuggle you to the Georgia line in my Expedition where @kendawg can take over and smuggle you to the next state...and so on...until you get where you need to go :)

    I am in the Bay area. But I need work to get out of FL. Race cars and going fast have me hooked.

    We'll have to plan a get-together someday. Reign is moving back to Tampa soon I think.

    So I was skimming the GT6 app...and besides it being a decent car database and info...the other section of the app has a crap load of info about cars, physics and tuning in general. I just skimmed a couple pages but dang it's really detailed...check it out if you have a ton of time. I might actually read it someday...
