The Ghostbusters Truck hood ornament has collected bugs after 3k miles

Just made it to Orlando after 6 days on the road. Whew are we beat, but the cars made it! We did have a few small mechanical issues along the way (flat tire, broken fanbelt, electrical fire), but nothing we couldn’t handle.

Got to see some great sights and landmarks, but the best part was the people we met along the way. Cannot wait to share the stories.

Here are some photos and highlights from the last few days. Look for the big post with more photos and videos next week!

Enjoy a time lapse Daniel took from his DeLorean using his Canon G9 as we drove through Moab, Utah.

Found this at an Arkansas truckstop. For some reason I found the captions on the back of this box just creepy.
