The transcontinental trip is over.
While on the road I visited over 20 friends, traveled through two countries and 19 states. I traversed mountains, prairies, deserts, and coastlines.
I mailed around 35 postcards.
I visited five national parks, slept in the car four nights, went to the Pacific three times, ate at In-N-Out twice, and had one job offer.
My car consumed 33 tanks of gas, with an average price of $36.88 per tank. The most expensive gas was in the Mojave Desert at $3.60 a gallon (Thanks for picking that one up Amanda). The cheapest gas was $2.45 in Boonville, MO.
I was on the road for about six weeks. I crossed the Continental Divide six times. The Fishers have six kids. And I have six friends in Seattle.
My suitcase had a range of 11 days, with a spare pair of underwear.
My car had three oil changes, in Montana it had two engine lights on, and one tire rotation.
The trip cost an estimated $2,667.72, that’s an average of $59.28 a day (including car maintenance). In comparison my trip to Australia cost an estimated $2,789 with an average of $232.41 a day.
I was in one wedding; Emily and Tara ate 20 chicken nuggets, and Maranatha has two cats.
I turned 26 on June 21st and celebrated my birthday at mile marker 5,220 (West Memphis, AR).
I created 30 blog posts, in a series titled Beautiful America, and this will be the final post. I hope that you have enjoyed it.
