Drove 600 miles in a weekend

I'm still here thinking about what a blast this past weekend was. Traveling is really one of the best ways to spend your money and free time. It's such a huge world out there; it's almost a responsibility to go see it. 

Driving 600+ miles took a tole on the car, though this time I'm lucky to come out of it without needing to replace the windshield (I had to on the previous road trip). If there's one thing you should do for your beloved automobile, it's to keep it consistently waxed so that debris and gunk won't stick to the paint. After the trip north, the front end of my car met quite a lot of insect causalities but a single pass of the pressure washer wand took care of it easily.
