    Ten years ago today, I bought the Z3!

    What a ride it's been.

    Happy Anniversary!

    Had my Ten Year back in March. Love it as much (or more) than the day I brought it home!

    I'm still at Dover (so not too far from you)...

    Well, not too far when I'm home, that is. I'll be in the 'stans for a little while longer. Say hi to Rose for me (and for Theresa, too). BTW, every time I go somewhere new, I check out roadfood.com first because of you. The Beacon Drive-In is still a classic!

    yeah yeah...I was in college in 97...

    I couldn't afford a new one then (or now). I had to wait a few years, cut me some slack! :-)

    Of course 2.8's rule!

    I'm now in two places

    Hello to both you and Theresa. Glad you mentioned the Beacon Drive-In and roadfood - nice to know someone actually paid attention to something I said!
    We sold our house in Maryland, and now have two condos: one in Austin, TX where we spend most of the year, and one in Roanoke, VA where we spend the hottest four months of the year. (I happen to have two daughters; one lives in Roanoke and the other lives in Austin, as do our two grandchildren.) I keep the Z3 in Roanoke, and bought a MiniCooper-S for Austin. The Z has 160K miles and is going just fine.
    It was nice to hear from you. I hope you get home safe and soon.

    if you're ever headed to DE, make sure to stop by

    Not that you would be headed through Delaware (why would anyone go through Delaware) but if you do, make sure to let us know. There are a couple of decent crab joints around...almost roadfood worthy :-)
