I was never this way before until I heard it a million times from her.

The guy I'm driving with thinks we will be able to make it there in one shot! Isn't that much? I feel like I would need to spend the night mid-way.

Any input?
this guy seems like a weirdo and I don't trust him one bit

love, Mom

LOL, how did I miss this one?

Anywhoooo, the guy has the hots for you and this is the perfect opportunity to get to know you better

I anticipate around dinner time and after a drink or ten he will say you know lets just spend the night I am getting pretty tired...what do you think?

Unless that guy has a brake pedal and steering wheel on his side he isn't going to prevent accidents

I could be wrong but dudes don't make offers like that out of the kindness of their hearts .

Not that there is anything wrong with that though...it could be fun!

you should be able to make it in one shot especially if you take turns driving. I drive solo from Philly to big pine key Florida (1310 miles) at least 4 times a year and can make the drive in 20.5 hours non stop. I leave Philly at 6pm and arrive the next afternoon b/w 2 and 4 pm and take a nap!! I try to leave at a time to to avoid the rush hours in Washington d.c. that traffic has added 3 hours onto my usual trip time. It has never taken more than 13 hours from the Philly airport to the boarder of Florida (868 miles). I usually add 5 mph on the speed limit and set the cruise and go. I try to stop for gas and bathroom breaks together.
