Quickies: Why Blue Stands Out in Wichita

Let me set the stage here. First of all, I mentioned that Wichita was not on the original plan for this road trip. A friend of mine asked about having me make a stop in there. After seeing that I could, I added the extra miles and the overnight stop to the trip.

Commentary: The Importance of The Ford Bronco

Ford also did a shrewd move on making Bronco its own "brand." I understand why, since the Bronco serves a completely different purpose within Ford’s sales infrastructure.

Rental Car Review: What Was Driven on The Mid-Continent Road Trip?

The vehicle for the road trip could have easily been an SUV, but I feared it would be less efficient even the larger interior and cargo space. Heck, it could have been a pickup truck. I would have to utilize the back seat for the luggage and the "stowaway" to reside in. A smaller car would also have compromises with luggage compared to the Camry.

Commentary: Was The Mid-Continent Road Trip Really Worth It?

Let’s face it, we’re a divided nation standing on both of sides of a chasm as big as the Grand Canyon. One side of the proverbial canyon fells like celebrating. The other is still upset over the powder keg that blew last month on the streets of Minneapolis and around the world.

How To Measure True Value

I know. That is an audacious statement. It is not without data, impressions, I know. That is an audacious statement. It is not without data, impressions, and results.

Travelogue: The Mid-Continent Road Trip – Part 1

You're probably thinking "I can go from Los Angeles to New York in one fell shot." You can do this over several days, stopping overnight in a few places. Perhaps, driving from coast-to-coast is better than being hurtled across the sky in a pressurized metal tube with a mask on. There is no guarantee that in this COVID-19 world that airline service would be completely different than before the world shut down.
