Day 09: Seattle, WA
Great night's sleep,
but I must have been a bit groggy

Fun facts: 65mph = 1400rpm (only!)
If the the redline is 6500rpm
that means I could do 301mph.
But that's not going to happen,
so why does the math say it will?
Corvette Computer error:
push, and hold, the seat 1 memory button
and the navigation/stereo system reboots.
That gets your attention the first time or two.
