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.
- 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).
