Trip Summary

We drove 1851 miles going to the cabin, 1846 miles coming back. Not sure where the 5 other miles went. (I might have slept through them.)

Our average speed going out was 59.4 mph, and we made it in 31.16 hours of “drive time”. That includes the time we spent getting gas, lunch, and walking the dogs every few hours. It took us 30.46 hours to get back for an average speed of 60.6 mph.

It cost us 14.5 cents per mile going (for gas), and 15 cents per mile coming home. Since the return trip is “downhill”, I’d have thought we’d be more economical on the return. Oh well.

And, to think that Lynne accuses me of being overly analytical.
