What a trip: safe, no big issues, helped a few people in Greensboro and saw what I wanted to—and then some! Nice to be back in G’vine for a few weeks before heading out again. On my southeast trip I’d driven 5346 miles, spent about 150 hours driving, and averaged a good 11.5 miles per gallon. Good stuff.
