Cool New APP for your Fall Road Trip

Fall road trip season is finally here. Before you take that “turning of the leaves” trip through New England or upstate New York, check out the new app from Roadtrippers at:

Roadtrippers lets you plot your route on their map and then gives you tons of awesome detours that are worth your time to see. It also gives you notes, photos and tips from other roadtrippers who took that path and loved it.

You can also just go there for ideas on a good road trip if you don’t have an exact destination in mind.

Very cool.

33rd Anniversary of the Thrust 2’s Land Speed Record is October 4th

Thrust2-2

Tomorrow marks the 33rd anniversary of Richard Noble’s historic 633 mph land speed record setting run at the Black Rock desert in Nevada.

The vehicle pictured above is the Thrust2, powered by a Rolls Royce jet engine.

That record held up until Sept 1997 when it was broken by Andy Green in the Thrust SSC. That particular race team was managed by Richard Noble also.

Happy Anniversary to SPEED!
