Chevy cruze not entirely aweful. The seat is decent, and the infotainment system is pretty good. Of course, any sort of technology in the cockpit is a step up for me.
Averaging 36.3 mpg.
With any luck, I won't have to stop again until I'm through Illinois.

For anyone interested in this kind of thing, if your GM digital fuel gauge tells you you have 35 miles left on a tank, the car is about to sputter and die in about 50 yards.
Thanks to the lovely people at this farm for letting me borrow a gas can.



I lost about an hour and a half, but I'm still making good time. I should get to Seattle around 930AM.

Oops, I meant Spark. The thing you posted is a cruze.

I'm in Washington now. I lost about 6 hours yesterday due to a massive biker rally. mlMore on that later. For now, here's a thing I saw at Yellowstone this morning.

That thing is so Pennsylvania.4444444444444444.


Extra 4s brought to you by this kitten. He's insane. I think he wasn't ready for hard food yet, he didn't eat until yesterday night when we put down some soft kitten food for him and he inhaled that ****.

And now today, SO MUCH ENERGIES. He bites a lot.

Yes, went to Seattle today. I thought it would be more like Portland. The dirtyness, urine smell, and congestion made it feel more like New York.
I'll be in Portland starting on the morning of the 6th and staying though the 8th.
I'm heading to Olympic now.

You see any boat racing? If not, shame on you.

My dad is there right now, he said the same thing. Seattle sucks but the beer and food is good.

I am alive! I was in Olympic for the last few days, and there was zero reception the entire time.
Heading back to Portland in the morning.
