This is the first time I have created anything on a blog. Be patient I am just a simple cow raising carpenter with some crazy thoughts and ideas. I wonder how far one could travel in a compact car fitted with edam rounds as wheels.

I find edam rounds good on freshly paved surfaces. However, one must do this in the morning dew as the temperature rise causes the edam to breakdown prematurely in the mid-day sun. If you are a drifter, I would choose wheels of parmigiano as they provide the rigidity required to overcome the large transverse stresses...Hello my old friend.

I think how far you'd get would depend on things like: 1) how hungry are you and your travelling companions, 2) the quality and quantity of roadside food outlets, 3) how much you like edam cheese.
I don't like Edam that much, so would drive much farther than on, say, Colby or Cheddar wheels.

Tara, I like where your mind regarding the dependencies, however there is a problem in your cheese selection. Colby is considerably softer than Cheddar, and unfortunately dries out a lot faster after opening. The other problem I find with Colby is that it is typically sold in half-rounds - not such a good 'rolling' factor. It will make a delightful snack while rolling on carefully carved Cheddar wheels.
