DC? LOL, that patch of swamp? Not a state though. My X has been through the gates of capital hill many times, pretty cool being able to park inside the hydraulic barricades.

You definitely need to drive to Alaska. I've driven there twice, the last time was in the winter. I was trucking through the Yukon in the early AM in a blizzard. Drove for ten miles with a rear flat before I figured out why it was squirrely.

I had not seen another car for hours and while I'm trying to change my flat in pitch black blizzard, this Canadian fellow in a front wheel drive Chrysler pulls up and lit up the work area. By the time we got my tire changed, I had 2 inches of snow inside the back of truck. That man was a god send.

Haven't actually taken my X to USA yet, I will this summer. But I took my X to Kamloops BC a few times last summer (Im from Alberta). About a 7.5 hour trip. Tunes blasting, skoal in my lip. Broken A/C in 30 degrees celsius weather. Ahh what a trip that was.

Crazy, when I was driving back from Alaska, one of my headlights went out. Night was approaching and the RCMP will pull you over for anything, plus I was pulling on some Crown Royal..., I do not advise drinking and driving folks.

Anyway, I pull into a convenience store in Kamloops and asked the two girls working about a headlight bulb. Auto stores were closed. Incredibly, one of the girls working carried a freaking spare headlight bulb in her car. She was more than happy to take 20 US dollars for it.

I plugged that sucker in, got back on the road and tossed the empty crown bottle out the window about 2 hours later. Yes, I littered in Canada, not something I am proud of. Go Canada!!!!;)

I've taken mine through BC, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, and the upper half of California.

Unfortunately hubby wouldn't let us take it on our roadrip to Texas where we went through Washington, Oregon, Nevada, California, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and Arizona. Instead we took his Mazdaspeed 6 (which I find a lot less comfortable to sit in for long periods...)

You are ahead of most X owners it seems. I'm going to head up to Maine this summer and knock out Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
California and Hawaii,, who cares

I did that with my family when i was 8. made it all the way to the colorado and back, didnt take one of those cheatin donkeys neither.

I was going to drive out to newfoundland this year, but time is a bit short so probably have to fly out there.
still its not uncommon for me to burn 3 tank of fuel in a weekend.

I had a speed6 for a min. before my wife's Audi, when we bought it i thought it was going to be my favorite car... but i found it to just be an over priced Mazda.... it felt like a ford focus, and we eventually got rid of it. it was alot of fun to treat like the red headed step child but could imagine it for a road trip like that. and finding parts for it was never fun. being it was only produced for 2 years.

I want to hear from more people about this! I've only hit California, Arizona and Nevada thus far. I do have a road trip planned for this summer that will take me through New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. We'll see how she does, but I definitely plan on something happening along the way that'll require some roadside wrenching.
