Ok gotta plan... DT drives the 991 to Cuda, they hang out, trade hot sauce stories and bar jokes, then DT flies back to PA. Problem solved.
The funny thing is that I would probably do it.
Shit, I have friends going to Vegas in early January. Mike, meet me and your car in Vegas 1/2-5 and buy me a ticket home from there.

Oooh. Instead of putting that all on one person, we could setup a relay chain. It could go through all the board members where each only has to drive it a relatively short distance.

With so many specific mentions of black leather front seats, I'm very curious to know the color of the back seats...

So an average of just under 139 mph not considering gas and pee breaks. Sounds reasonable to me.
