I'm going to write the president and suggest another czar whose job would be to disapprove and deny road trips like this. The carbon footprint of this trip darkens my day and prevents me from seeing my rainbow.

I guess a story about a shooting or a dog biting someone's kid would intrigue you. Get a life and lighten up people! This guy's definition of adventure may differ from yours, but he's entitled to do whatever he wants. It's his car and he paid the gas to go there and back. As far as having a "czar to deny road trips like this", come on...are you serious? He drove 1400 miles round trip to get pies for his wife, even if they were $18 a piece. I know he probably had some "pie" of his own on Thursday night when he got home ;)

Perhaps the groups of motorcycles out on a Sunday should be denied too. 14 bikes going 100 miles on a joy ride (1400 miles total) is more polluting than this dude in his Mustang. A light hearted story that shows one man's adventure is more than welcome in the local paper. It's a great break from the usual crime-filled news of this town! Thank you for the story, Evening Sun! And rock on, Mike Miller! You da Man!

I'm not sure that is possible. "More dumber" (?) Somebody wants a czar to regulate road trips. If we need a new czar for anything it's to prevent "more dumber" people from being allowed to post.

Lighten up folks. Nobody died, nobody got hurt, nobody out of work.....you get the point. Just a lighthearted story about someone with a sense of adventure. What a spontanious fun thing to do. Something besides bad news is always welcome! Slow news day is a good news day.

I enjoyed the story. If you don't think it is newsworthing DON"T read it. Do you read everything in the paper? You downers need to get a life. It is good to have nice stuff not just the drugs and murder stories you must like.

The pies were probably made by illegal immigrants.

Winning the hearts of all his peers is just one of this mans talents. Folks, you are looking at the future political leader of this nation. First mayor of Gettysburg, then new Republican president of the United States. I know him well. Great guy with a Big Heart. He"s got my vote!!!!
Must be nice

All I can say is it must be nice to be able to drive all that way just to get some pies. While most of us here in this area are having enough trouble finding enough gas money to make it to the local grocery store just to get the "necessities" we need.

Perkin's Pies are THE best. I have known Martha Perkins and her husband Len for 28 years and they are the best cooks around. I am the one who painted their pie sign when they first started their business on Route 3 on Mount Desert. They are true Mainers and very hard workers. They use only the best, freshest ingredients and cook from scratch. Nothing but the best for them! I now have retired to California, San Francisco area and I miss Martha and Len and their pies a whole wicked lot!!

underground military facility near fairfield - what are they talking about!!!??????
There is no underground military facility near fairfield - SSHHHH!, it's a secret.
Now, as for adventure boy, he's paid MOST of his dues in life so let him do what he wants. Besides, I heard he can't ride ATV's anymore so what else is there to do but ride in a convertable mustang and eat pie?
