1,444 Miles

Overall.. I'm going to say it was a good trip. From Wisconsin to Missouri.. well, it's quite a drive.

The wedding reception thingy was fine, I was imagining something with at least a few moments of incredible awkwardness, but nothing really happened. I had a blueberry pie made especially for me, so my overall impression of the event is very good. I also got to witness an adult taste what could have been either salt, sand, or sugar from the centerpiece – which she decided was actually little grains of plastic.

I ate at Sonic for the first time, as did Fumbles. That was good. We went to a couple zoos – pictures should be up on flickr by the end of the week, and maybe some videos on youtube. I saw St. Louis flooded again, and rode to the top of the Arch for the second time in the last 10 years.

On the way back home I raced for several miles down I-90 with some asian kid in a Mazda RX8. That was some good clean fun – I haven't felt the urge to weave through traffic like that for a long time.. nor have I seen the speedometer in this car get so close to 110.

I feel like I'm failing a Turing test.

I've taken a liking to maps lately, so here's another one:


This is my excuse just in case I don't post at all until next Monday. Tonight I drive from A (Whitewater, WI) to B (Chicago, IL) followed by a 9+ hour drive tomorrow from B to C (Ava, MO).

I'm going to be adding mileage to my car faster than she's ever experienced. As of this morning my gas tank is full, my car is clean, and my tires are perfectly inflated. 1230 miles later, I'm sure I'm never going to want to drive again – which is ok, because I think I'm selling my car off in a few months anyway. Anyone want a slightly used 2007 Hyundai Sonata Limited?
