After an exhausting 4 days on the road to and from Kentucky, we made in back to Jacksonville.
Points to note; never take ownership of a car during/after the after effects of a cat 4 hurricane!

Due to some unforeseen events, we left the dealership a little later than planned, and in the middle of a torrential downpour, which was the bands of Ida washing through the area. Trying to stick to the break-in as best as possible, the first 100 miles took us through some very scenic and VERY wet areas of upper Kentucky.
We eventually made it to I-75 and were met with moderate to very heavy rain until somewhere south of Georgia where the weather eventually tapered off to occasional rainfall and drizzle. That drive SUCKED. Driving in heavy rain for long periods of time is absolutely exhausting.

I will say this; the car did extremely well in the weather, and the OEM all-season Pirelli's that everyone bitches and moans about did exceptionally well. Driving the WB as compared to my Scatpack in heavy rain was night and day. The car is extremely composed and comfortable in the heaviest of rain fall and felt great the entire trip.





Home sweet home. She's filthy and needs a bath, but it hasn't stopped raining for more than 30 minutes since we got home.

The drive was brutal, but totally worth it. My GF and her daughter went with me, and they were both troopers, which made the trip all that much better. I've been working overseas for the past year, so spending some quality time with them on the trip was well worth the drive.

Jake is a super cool dude and really went out of his way to take care of some last minute things that were needed.
I'll let him chime in about helping me transfer all of our luggage from my Scat to the RE under the awning of a gas station in a torrential downpour. :ROFLMAO:
