Eight states and four time zones later, we’ve reached California. Thoughts on the trip:
Good God, the U.S. is huge.
Going east to west is nice; you effectively get 25-hour days.
So glad I’m not driving back. Especially since I’d have to do it alone.
Just how big is this place?
Thank God for cruise control. I’m pretty certain I didn’t touch the gas or the brake for three hours in western Kansas — and that isn’t hyperbole.
Watching the gas mileage change going up into Colorado is depressing. Watching it change coming down out of Colorado is glee-making.
Especially in a hybrid. Thank God for those, too.
How is all of this a single country?
