Oh, that's just grand! A fun read as well. Kinda makes me long for those road-tripping carefree days...
Wonder if the Kum and Go has Chili Poos?
Wait? You can drive from Albany to Wisconson in 2 days?
Pooh. Try Bethlehem, New Hampshire to Minneapolis in two days via Canada ---> Detroit ---> Chicago ---> Milwaukee. Think I had two hours of sleep between NH and Detroit. Fun times!
At one of my most-tired moments along some unforgotten stretch of highway, I pulled over to get some much-needed nectar of the road trip gods, caffeine. The rest stop was particulary nasty and dismal. The "coffee" they served me at 4:30 in the morning resembled water from the previous day's mop bucket, and tasted like it too.
Wish I had a digital camera back then...
Road trips are the best. I wonder what that dues's caffeine:animated smiley ratio is?
says 19 hours and 56 min.
I've done 1800 miles in two days (Fort Worth to Cedar Rapids and back). Actual drive time was about 28 hours. I drove the vast majority of it, too. (My son spelled me for about 4 hours on the way back home).
Gee whiz, Doohickie, that's a long drive. It's about all I could do to get from NW Ohio to Ft. Worth back when I was in school, and I usually took 2-3 days. (I usually did all of the driving, too, because my dog isn't a very good driver.)
It's easy to drive distances like that when you're pissed (son was leaving college). It was about 14 hours each way actual time.
Hell, come to think of it, I drove 9 hours this weekend just to see a football game.
I drove seven hours a couple of weeks ago just to see my sister's marching band competition. Since we're both TX folk (though I'm sadly not living there now), I think anything under 10 hours really isn't too much. Over ten hours, though, you have to start actually *planning* and stuff :)
What high school did you go see? My son marches for North Crowley; we made Area but not State.
Ah, the venerable road trip. I had one in '02 and '04, but I didn't have the time to take one this year.
I road trip every year, with 8 or 9 friends in a rental van. So far (all starting in Hamilton, Ontario) we've done Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Baltimore, Boston, and New York. This year is Philly and DC.
From NY to LA in
32 Hours and 7 Minutes
My sister marches for LD Bell :) They're waaay better than back in the day when I marched for them.
