So, my trip to Super Cel East started today. We packed up the family and headed south. I didn’t take any photos since I was driving and just trying to get through Ohio as soon as possible. Tonight, me and Mrs. @David are dropping of the boys with the grandparents in the blessed land of North Carolina and will be heading to Townsend tomorrow.

Can’t wait to see everyone this week. Stay tuned for more updates from our road to Super Cel.

Got off on a good, early start. Should be getting into Townsend around midday or so. Beautiful day in North Carolina. We’ll see what it’s like up in the mountains. Of course we grabbed a Carolina delicacy for breakfast. Don’t worry, Bronco content coming as soon as we get to Townsend.

If you hear me called Lizzie at the event, it's because we are fortunate to have Mrs. @David, our original Laura, in the Bronco Nation booth this week, as you read above. I volunteered for us to take up using my initials, a blended moniker, or something. How's that joke go? Call me whatever you want, just don't call me late for dinner? So Lizzie/Laura/Lauren/LZ/or hey you I will be when you stop by to say hi to us all.

I hit the road a little after 5 a.m. today. It was a great day; I got to enjoy several hours worth of Broncos onsite, plus even more of beautiful land before that on the way down (and, I spotted an immaculate cream early Bronco being trailered down). It's been years since I traveled through Kentucky and Tennessee. I forgot those states saw Michigan's woods and raised them with mountains. Lucky! And the rivers -- I'll be back with my kayak. I left the Jeep at home, and had the very low experience (literally, the car has small tires and no lift kit) of taking a Toyota down. No roof rack. So I was beyond glad to get the chance to do my first time behind the wheel in a Bronco today, even if it was only for a couple hundred feet. I also had the opportunity of moving another, but missed out on doing so, as the actual execution of manual driving has escaped me thus far. Please weep with me on that.

I have to admit, coming from no tech in a vehicle (my Jeep's previous owner: "the cruise control is currently disabled." Lizzie's dad, later when under the hood: "That's one way of putting it. The cruise control cable is cut."), just starting the Bronco is a process for me. But fortunately, I have read the quick reference guide, plus the dashboard walks you through the steps anyway. More thoughts: I love the sheltered feeling of the Bronco. I know having the side pillars closer in probably doesn't feel great for the bigger man-sized men here, but I hated the roomy interior of the rental. I need to rest my arm on the window frame while driving! And for whatever reason, I feel more like I'm actually driving in a Jeep/Bronco, rather than sitting in a small living room moving down the road. I fall more in love with these vehicles each time I'm with them, and that's even before taking one off road. I may pass out from happiness when that happens.

I think they delivered my A51 Badlands to the wrong location. It’s ok they can drop it off here when they are done with it at Super Cel East. :ROFLMAO:

A little morning rain, a lot of Broncos. Here's some of the site shots that will welcome you as you roll into the field. We still have some complimentary hot coffee at our booth; come warm your hands!

The best news: They are doing limited walk-ups on the rides; you can register at the Ford trailer. That will be huge for some of you, so get here, sign up, and enjoy! They book for the whole day starting at 8 a.m., so show up first thing, and then you will be assigned a time you can come back for. Word from those leaving their trip is it's "freaking amazing."
