Road Trip Baby!

Last week I ventured out on the longest drive in the shortest amount of time ever. Kathryn embraced a fun opportunity to complete a clinical rotation for school in Colorado Springs and I was the lucky gal that got to make the drive with her. The road trip to Colorado Springs started around lunch on Sunday....12:21pm to be exact. We patiently listened to the "be safe" speech from Paul and then hit the pavement for the long haul. I can't possibly record the experience in paragraph form, so I have opted to list out the memorable parts of the trip.

1. Making 5+ U-turns (most in an attempt to find Sonic)

2. Yummy Sonic blast and the never ending crave for ice cream

3. Forever battling the ETA on the GPS

4. Hue's random sickness in the middle of the night (Hue is the attractive accented
GPS voice that went absolutely crazy)

5. The scary voice that got the job done while Hue recovered, but kept referencing a noise coming from the trunk....and my avoiding looking in the rear view for fear that I would see a young, pale girl in a white dress

6. The long drive through Kansas. At one point, I would have bet money that Kansas is the only state between Georgia and Colorado.

7. The disgusting feeling around the 18th hour and the rather strong desire to brush my teeth.

8. The random variety of food: bananas, apples, cheddar bunnies, keylime cupcakes (gross), water, cheap coffee drinks, m&m's, subway, arby's, sonic blast.....oh yeah...and fiber one bars.
