[flickr]photo:4704974618[/flickr] This is hardly the important highlights of our journey but, I wanted to cover some of the mundane details nobody but me seems to care about.
We were away from home for 25 days (24 nights).
We bought 237.8 gallons of gas at a cost of $708.20.
We paid $56.22 in tolls.
We drove 4,531 miles.
We travelled through 13 states and 1 district (not counting Minnesota).
We slept in 8 of them
… in 9 different locations.
We did something other than eat or buy gas in 13. Sorry West Virginia!
We averaged 19.8 mpg.
The hottest temperature was 105°F (according to the car) in Virginia.
We only travelled East and South of Rochester, MN
The furthest south we travelled was the Outer Banks (intersection of US 64 and NC 345 in Dare County, North Carolina on Roanoke Island) on our way to Manteo.
The furthest east we travelled was the Boston Children’s Museum in Massachusetts.
It rained briefly 3 or 4 times, never long enough to significantly change our plans.
We collectively watched less than 6 hours of television, movies and video games.
More to come!
