What's the score from Flavor Town? I tried out a different hole in the wall burger spot today... Probably about a 6.
Ah right, it was a Nashville Hot place. Still haven't actually been to Nashville so I can't compare the real deal, but the chicken was fried well and spice was good. Thick pickles. Easy 8/10. Fries were ok.

Got a bit busy for the last few days at the new home, but the rest of the road trip went very very well! No issues whatsoever with the car and some beautiful views to boot. I regret not having my camera ready to take some photos in Utah, but I started to take photos in Idaho and all through Oregon and Washington. I still have yet to go through them.

After all those miles of highway-only throttle actuation, I felt it was pretty out of whack when I got back to city driving. Performed the voodoo throttle rest and it's back to normal again. Amazing how that just works.

Here's one photo until I go through the rest. The last photo of the car in NM (stopped at a ditch on the side of the highway for a quick wee).

Classic modern VW wheels. ;)
I do like them... but I'm hoping to replace them by the end of the summer primarily because they're staggered. But secondly, because they are such a gigantic pain in the ass to clean!!

Whatcha thinking about switching to?
Pretty committed to RAYS Gram Lights 57DR in 18x8.5 +37. I'm a huge JDM fan and sorta fell into a GTI, so I'd like to blend the two looks.

I want something like that on the R ironically hahaha, solid wheel choice.
I'm also desperate to get a slight bit of concave to the wheel, but our hub/fender offset doesn't really give us too many chances for that. I'm not trying to get ridiculous, 10" wide, +10 concave. Just a little is all I want -- I don't wanna have to run lots of camber, like I already have to with these damn staggered rears (9.5" +35).

Finally managed to set my computer up and go through my quick road trip shots. Surprise, surprise, most of them are absolute ass. And unfortunately, I didn't have my camera ready for southern Utah, which was absolutely gorgeous. Didn't bother with my time in NM (boring highways there), and between SLC/Ogden and Twin Falls, I got caught in a real shitty rain storm. No time to take photos there.
Here are the good ones.
I wrote little blurbs for each photo.

Thanks! I wish I was able to take more/better photos through Snoqualmie Pass. I'll be back up soon to actually find nice photo spots.
