Christmas Day 2006
We finally completed our cross-country road trip this morning.
From California's "Imperial" Valley to our place in South Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, it's exactly 2164 driving miles.
By driving in shifts, we made the trip in 37 hrs 23 min. Not a record, but not too bad either, even though it rained continuously from the Texas-Louisiana state line all the way to our home.
A few statistics:
Number of times that we heard "Sleigh Bells Ring Are You Listening" on the radio: 136.
Number of times that I
Number of times that we stopped at McDonald's Restaurant: 04
Number of times that McDonald's
Number of times that both the WifeWonk and the TeenWonk over-ruled my
Number of gorgeous blondes who were driving bright red Mercedes convertables: 01.
Number of times that the WifeWonk thumped EdWonk on the head: 01.
Too many times to count: As with our other trips, we observed that the Georgia Highway Patrol continues to enjoy its
*stretching and yawning* Time to go
*getting-up* To all of our friends who've dropped-in at our site, Merry Christmas!.... and to all a good night!
