What I Did This Summer Vol II: Epic Road Trip


San Francisco to LA to Vegas to El Paso to Austin to Houston to New Orleans to Atlanta to Baltimore to NYC in a 1998 Nissan Altima and 12 tanks of gas and 1 speeding ticket. 3 people from SF to LA via SLO, 4 people from LA to Houston, 5 Houston to NOLA, 3 people from NOLA to NYC.

I'm the one who got the speeding ticket. Guess what the speed limit is in NC? 65. Guess the speed of traffic? 85. Guess who had the only CA license plates in radar gun-shot? Guess who broke out the drug-sniffing dogs like it was a big deal.

One time, three of us left waco at 6pm on a thursday, got to LA at 5 pm on Friday, watched our friend get married on Saturday at 11 am, left LA after the reception (3 pm), and got back home at 2 pm Saturday - your trip makes my trip look easy and fun...

correction - we got back on SUNDAY, there was no time travel involved to my knowledge...

haha, time travel!

actually, we took 11 days, including 2.5 days in houston and 3 in new orleans, so i'd say we were going at a lazy pace compared to you guys! that's a great way to attend i wedding, too. road trips are always worth it in the end. . . even worth those court costs. . .
