State of the Interstate report...

Rolled out of K-town at 1112EDT, arrived Roseholme Cottage 1640EDT. Trip odometer showed a hair shy of 378 miles. Rolling average was ~68mph, plus a muy quick petrol stop just south of Lexington. Hands and feet still feel a little disconnected when I'm sitting still. Cats ecstatic to see me; I'm assuming my roommate will be also, but she's still off tending the Warp Core at the starship.

Interstate retard recap, trip notes, and vacation thoughts to follow. Maybe even tonight. Or maybe I'll just enjoy an Oaken Barrel Gnaw Bone and deal with the keyboard demons tomorrow. Who can say?

Mt Vernon, OH, to Denver, CO - 1324 miles Wed & Thurs; then back to Ohio, Sun & Mon. About 61 mph. Had to get the snow tires for the SUV, my reloading gear, and the Christmas tree.
I used to be taller...and younger. And smarter. Waved as I went through Indy, both ways.
Glad we're both home safe. OldeForce

Glad you made it back fine and had a good time. The interstate is always full of retards (except in west Kansas where it's full of nothing) and it's always perfect to end the day with a good beer.

How can you use cruise control with all the "interstate retards"?
I haven't been able to use mine since it was invented.
The keepers of the speed are prevailent everywhere and especially on the interstate.

Passed you going the other way. Did you get out of town before the truck flipped on the ramp to I-640 EB?
