I’ve spent a lot of time behind the wheel in my life. I’ve driven from North Carolina to Maryland each weekend for 2 years and the memorable 2 years driving from DC to Pittsburgh each weekend.
This time around I completed the marathon 20-hour drive from Pittsburgh to our new home in Tampa, stopping only for gas, food, coffee, and a 30-minute stretch for a job interview via phone. The predicted trip time according to Apple maps was 15 hours 30 minutes. I didn’t have any problems on the drive but I began to notice as I drove that I kept losing time. The 15 turned to 16, then to 18 and so on. I was traveling the speed limit the entire time and only had a couple of traffic slowdowns that may have totaled 30 minutes. The trip through West Virginia took a bit longer because driving up mountains while towing another car is a slower process but my speed was still about a mile a minute.
I was able to take some snapshots while crossing the borders of seven states: PA, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, and finally Florida. I made the trip and never really felt tired. I did consider stopping at one point because my body was getting sore from sitting. I pushed through and was pretty wired even after getting in the door. We plan on giving you some really interesting posts as we settle into our new home in Tampa, Florida.
