My car and I were in a zone. I made the drive from Raleigh, NC to Rochester, NY. Mapquest says 640 miles, 11 hours and 50 minutes. I did it in 10 and a half. I made one stop. Only one stop in all of those miles. I refueled the car gas tank and defueled my gas tank in Gettysburg, PA. Other than that it was me and a lot of broken lines.

I am whipped. I got to Rochester at about 7:30. My aunt greeted me and told me to come over for some food. They had a dinner party planned but a few people couldn’t make it. I changed from shorts to jeans and joined them out on the deck. What a spread. Chicken, BBQ sandwiches, fruit and veggies, grilled shrimp, pork tenderloin kabobs, beer, and wine. They do it right over there. I was a zombie and my legs didn’t know what to think after two days of walking Pinehurst and then one day of sitting in my car.

My folks got home midway through a card game. I was done. They are still playing. I’m about to hit the shower and hit the sack. Unpacking will wait for tomorrow.
