A bit OT, but thanks for posting picks of your boots, Fab. Ever since I got here and saw your sig, I've been wondering what the Black Cherry color looked like in real life. Even though I'm a born and bred New Yorker, my mother hails from upstate, and was raised with a deep appreciation for country western music (not the "nu country" crap they play today, but the real deal -- Johnny Cash, Charlie Pride, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, etc). She started buying me cowboy boots and bolo ties from when I was three years old (I still have my first pair of Fryes). I've been thinking about getting a pair of Luccheses, but they ain't exactly giving them away are they? I collect watches, and after my last pick up, somehow I doubt that my wife is going to let me drop three large on a pair of boots. Still, after seeing yours, I'm sorely tempted to sell one my "kids" and put the money towards a pair of Classics.
Now, back on topic... Good luck with your road trip, and be sure to let us know how your X fares. I'm heading out to Montreal tomorrow with the wife and baby, and anticipate adding almost 1000K mi to X as well. Needless to say, I can't wait to hit the road!
