Senior citizen drives Volt almost 4,000 miles in less than 5 days, followed by drone!

Amazing, a drone (probably from the NSA "NonSence Association") tracking a suspicious looking senior citizen driving a fast Volt, along parts of Route 66 and other points out west.

Note, speed limits in Texas are 75 MPH except on Interstate 10 from Kerr County to El Paso County where it is 80 MPH (and TxDOT is planning on raising that to 85 MPH...) My wife and I rotated driving duties and "nap sessions" which allowed us to cover a lot of miles in less than 5 days and we spent 3 nights only in hotels.

And I still meet people who believe a Volt can only go about 50 miles before it has to stop and be recharged ALL DAY back to a full charge.

@ Raymondjram ... I once went 50 miles on foot in a day when I was 19 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and I thought I was gonna die. Now that I am an old fart, 50 yards in a day is about all I can stand, and I can't stand to not be standing on the "gas" peddle in my Volt so I can do darned near a thousand miles in a day in my blistering fast red Volt. Two drivers swapping "chores" in Texas where some of our interstate roads are 80 MPH can get you a long way, fast.

@ Flux Capacitor Thank you. I've been off and on the internet (we have "issues" on connectivity out here in the sticks) and I've become so filthy rich these past two years, bagging goat poop and selling it to city slickers as "The finest organic matter for your home veggie garden, grows delicious crops" that soon I will be able to buy a Bolt and pay cash for it. God bless those gullible city slickers... Heck, I might just buy my 3rd Volt too.
@ bjrosen

Speed limit here in Texas is 75 except for a stretch of road between Pecos and almost to El Paso on i-10 where it is 80, and my Volt goes a lot faster than 80. Add two possessed drivers in a Volt swapping sleeping and driving, and you can make a very long trip in any car (if you don't care about your standings on VoltStats...) Spent little time on Route 66 compared to the "fast roads."

Speed limits in New Mexico (or should I say "crawl limits" are ridiculous. But I have an app, for that.

Life is short and the road is long... Haul buns I say.
