I was gone 5 days from April 25 to April 30, and in that time we traveled 3030 miles in about 50 hours of actual travel time... I drove between half and two-thirds of that distance, and boy
is my ass tired! We started on the Oregon/Idaho border and ended up on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. We crossed the Missouri and Mississippi rivers twice each and stayed at our 'destination' less than 48 hours before turning around and going back. I drove completely across
Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming... the long way
. Day, night, blinding sun, a blizzard, lots of winding mountain roads and even more interminable flat horizon-to-horizon straight roads... it was an adventure
I am never
doing that again.
