Road Trip With No Stops

Arg. Too much driving. A bit over 1100 miles and 8 states. Lots of roadkill, pokey drivers, way too many semi-trucks, road construction, cops waiting in ambush. A crick in the neck. People may say they always do the speed limit but nobody does. The rest area in New York was gross. The one in West Virginia was immaculate. I nearly missed getting hit by one of those large orange construction barrels when a truck ahead plowed through it and it flew into the air. But on the last leg of the journey, I managed to get about 40 miles/gallon (when I fueled up in Virginia). Amazing–comparing that to the first fuel up, New Hampshire is a rip-off.
