[03:34:47] <skunkworks_> cradek: Is maxnc coming to the workshop?
[03:35:22] <jmkasunich> you mean max5? I sure hope so
[03:35:49] <skunkworks_> * skunkworks_ too
[03:35:54] <cradek> yes
[03:36:00] <cradek> the lathe too
[03:36:01] <skunkworks_> neat
[03:36:10] <skunkworks_> is the bus coming?
[03:36:23] <cradek> I have two laptops to run them. I don't know if I will have them set up beforehand or not.
[03:36:32] <cradek> nope, we're taking jeff's car again
[03:36:38] <skunkworks_> ah :)
[03:38:42] <jmkasunich> you're gonna finish the bus just in time for fuel to hit $5 a gallon
[03:38:53] <jmkasunich> any idea what mileage it gets?
[03:39:00] <cradek> no idea yet
[03:39:19] <cradek> I'm sure it'll get about 31 like my car
[03:39:43] <jmkasunich> lol
[03:40:06] <cradek> I got 33 coming back from kansas last week, with the cruise set at 60
[03:40:18] <cradek> how sad that I think that's great mileage
[03:40:30] <jmkasunich> I'd be thrilled to get 25
[03:40:44] <skunkworks_> we get around 37 with our corrola.
[03:40:51] <jmkasunich> I'm gonna try doing 60-65 on the way to the workshop, instead of 70-75, see if it makes a difference
[03:40:58] <jmkasunich> (besides adding at least an hour to the drive)
[03:40:58] <cradek> it will
[03:41:43] <skunkworks_> we will be bringing dads pickup and hope to get around 20-22 mpg
[03:41:45] <cradek> 60 to 75 is a huge huge difference
[03:42:18] <jmkasunich> yeah, the difference between 8 hours and 10
[03:42:23] <cradek> in my car 60: 33, 75: 26
[03:42:43] <cradek> (it has a mpg readout)
[03:43:06] <cradek> 100: 17?
[03:43:08] <cradek> haha
[03:44:37] <jmkasunich> goodnight
[03:44:43] <cradek> goodnight
[03:44:45] <cradek> good idea
