Am I the only one? I suffer from a chronic case of time poverty. How about you, do you find yourself feeling a little stressed at the end of a long day? You've worked late and need to get home before supper is all dried up (yes, Ward Cleaver model homestead) and yet you say to yourself, "You know if I go the long way home I can get a little thrill, blow off a little carbon build-up from my injectors, and walk in the door with a smile on my face."

You do it, you take that special long way home (trying hard not to over-rev and even harder not to attract unwanted attention). You walk in the door and your wife asks you how it's going and you just say, "It was a great day."

I am finding with my Z06 daily driver that if I do this three to five times, I am guaranteed to have a great week.........put enough great weeks together and you've had a great year.

I have to admit, there are 2 ways home for me. One is on a normal highway (65mph limit), dull road, and the other is called the "lighthouse route" which follows the ocean on a very windy road, which takes probably 20-30 minutes longer. I have been known to take the long way home /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Good story!!

I find I have too much time on my hands. I go to work at 4:30 every morning and am out by noon. Sometimes I just go out for a little spirited driving to get my thrills. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

My Z will be one year old in nine days. Its a daily driver and I just turned over 8000 miles last week. I guess I don't drive it enough. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Daily dirver with only 8000 miles in one year? And I take crap for only driving on weekends. But in 8 months I've put 7000 miles on mine. Frank, you need to drive more. Have you thought about driving it on weekends too? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
