I was being sarcastic, Dave.
Seriously though, wouldn't a bunch of one-way plane tickets bet cheaper? And quicker. I love driving but even that circle would probably make me suicidal.
Woohoo! We get a Friday night. Oh the drunken debauchery that will ensue is gonna throw you off your schedule. You won't be able to leave and go elsewhere. You are gonna be so sore. Of course you can stay with us any time you want to. We love you.
Gas is looking to be around $700 actually for the whole trip if I average 30mpg, which is not that hard in my car to do. I have never had a tank average under 25. Even at 25mpg with pricier gas ($3.50) it's still $816. Far cheaper than flying to each stop.
