I am currently off visiting my parents and driving Fugly (my HHR) to avoid putting mileage on the SLK.

So, I left San Antonio at 0245 CST on April 8th and drove home to a small town called DeFuniak Springs here in Florida. My drive went like this:

@ 0245 in San Antonio, TX
@ 0527 in Houston, TX
@ 0948 in Baton Rouge, LA
@ 1304 in Mobile, AL
@ 1445 in DeFuniak Springs, FL

The entire drive was quite uneventful and rather pleasant! It would have been a lot more fun if I was in the SLK though.

I will admit, I am pleased to say I got 31 MPG running at 71-74 MPH the entire way and the ride wasn't all that bad. I was more stove up taking my 32 across the state of LA than I was in the HHR. The HHR also had an additional 300 lbs in it.

However, my joy with the HHR came to a screeching halt when it came down to my day to day driving while I'm here for three weeks. The HHR is very slooooow getting up and moving around. Even my Mother (which hates fast cars and drives a V6 Impala) asked me if she need to get out and push! I, of course, died laughing at that.

I can't wait to get back to Texas on the 29th or so and give Blue a big hug. I miss her : /

That's a proper drive! What are your return dates - there's a chance I'll be either in LA or TX, and more than willing to provide a short break! :)

I'll be heading back April 29th or 30th.

Ah well, so much for that idea - I'll be out chasing sheep with the UK crew, supposed to be headed back second week of May now for some quality time with the Firemist Dragon! :)
