For the first time in far too long, I was able to spend most of the day (well, about 4 hours) out for a drive. About an hour from home to the start (Lisbon above), an hour between there and Leesville on a pretty good road, almost entirely 55mph limit twisting through woods and farms, with a couple spots dropping to 35 to go through small towns. About half an hour back to the highway on decently-fun roads (and a few miles of gravel) and an hour back on the interstate.
At some point, maybe later this summer, I’d like to get some friends together and spend a weekend in this area and a bit further south, as it seems to be where the roads actually start to get interesting without being too far out. As it was, this was a good day trip. If I go again, I might leave a little more time and turn around in Leesville and go back the way I came.
The RX7 enjoyed the drive as well, doing what it’s meant to do. Somewhere in the middle there was a section of road doing a pretty good Laguna Seca Corkscrew impression, I’ll have to see if I can find it from the dash cam footage.
