Road Trippin’ with Chrysler
It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it.
Over the next several days, your friendly Gunaxin Editors will have the opportunity to test drive the new Chrysler 200, on a road trip destined for the NFC Championship game. We arrived this evening in Pittsburgh, on a flight with Franco Harris (that isn’t really how we roll, he just happened to be on the same plane), and will be setting out in the morning for Cincinnati (thank you spell check).
Along the way we’ll be seeing some sites, such as the American Sign Museum (yep, apparently such a thing exists), and stopping into some local hot spots for some grub. We’ll be tweeting about our experience with the hash tag #200trip, and will check in with some posts as well. Our final destination for this trip is Chicago (thankfully, because Seattle is really far away), where we’ll partake in some tailgating, and then join the Soldier Field faithful to watch the epic match-up between the storied rivals.
This road-trip began in Detroit, with our friend The Bachelor Guy taking the first leg, and bringing the Chrysler 200 safely into Pittsburgh for their match-up with Baltimore this past weekend. Joining us in Chicago will be some of our friends from Bro Bible who will pilot the vehicle down the Mississippi to New Orleans (I was hoping they’d get to drive to Hawaii). From there, the anchor leg will be driven by the guys at Bullz-Eye, who will pull into Dallas just in time for the Super Bowl. Lucky for us, the rest of the drivers get to join them in Dallas, and we’ll all attend that game together.
So it should be a fairly epic trip, and we’ll try to keep you up to speed on our progress, as we share some of the flavor from the games and the road.
