Road Trip DC to Hilton Head Island

In this current time, an escape, a drive, along the coast is therapeutic. The miles are no longer a chore, but a welcome cinema of life where we have choice at each stage.

I took my son Jonah to Hilton Head Island for his 6th birthday.  He loves to swim so we decided it was a great place for him to enjoy swimming.

We drove about 585 miles in 8 hours, stopping at South of The Border tourist attraction since 1950 each direction because, I have a now six year old.  I picked up some fireworks for his bday.

Overall it was my first trip longer than 400 miles on the michelin pilot sport AS3+, with the new UPD Air Spacers, Resonator Delete, and with the new android screen, and she felt great with almost no detectable drone at all.

It was comfortable to cruise, I added a splash of oil other than that nothing to mention other than the fact my CLS550 is just a fantastic GT.  The air suspension and semi-active shocks are fantastic.  The steering is direct without being unstable. The engine roars to life, especially now with the resonator delete, when needed to overtake.
