Cross country adventure

My lovely girlfriend and I have made it to California!  We did it Cannonball Run style, three days of driving 18+ hours.  A few stops for food, gas and bathrooms each day.  One less-than enjoyable motel in Illinois, and one rather nice, cheap hotel in Wyoming.  Lots of beautiful scenery and some really cool transitions.

Quick stats:

  • 3210 miles in three days
  • ~140 gallons of gas
  • 23mpg average
  • 63 mph average

Now on to the actual apartment search.  We’re staying outside the city until we actually find a spot, but we’re going to start blitzing open houses with all the piles of required documentation (employment letter, credit history, paystubs, rental app, blood type, recent personal internet usage history, etc).
