I pulled into Kansas City at 10:00 last night…
In the last 6 days, I have driven 2900 miles to complete a 1600 mile trip with gas at its highest price in the history of these United States. I have more gas receipts than I know what to do with!
2000 of those miles were driven in an uncomfortable, 13 MPG pickup truck with a radio that works whenever it feels like it, has no A/C and steering so loose that you feel like a skipper at the helm of a boat.
I have avoided citations for driving said truck while uninsured in 4 states.
I have been spared a major accident in New Mexico.
I have missed tornadoes in Kansas on two different nights.
I have had, not one, but two cell phones die on me.
I have changed time zones 7 times in the last 6 days.
I have slept in my truck in Newberry Springs, CA and Flagstaff, AZ and Pratt, KS.
I have spent $290 to sleep 5 nights in 4 different hotels in 3 different cities.
I have spent $488 to fix a car that I am towing and $83 on a truck that I tried to sell.
Needless to say…I AM TIRED
