8:20 am – Reminder Text [Flickr]
Google Calendar helped remind me about 12 of 12 by sending me a text message.

10:00 am – Morning Coffee [Flickr]
Orioles over the Nats any day.

1:00pm – Office Space [Flickr]

3:00pm – Laundry Complete! [Flickr]
Laundry seems to take forever.

5:37 pm – My Packing Skillz [Flickr]
I have to get real luggage. Using a crate is kinda "ghetto".

6:30 pm – Kristen at the Helm [Flickr]
I-85 northbound to Ashland, VA.

8:30 pm – Wendys [Flickr]
Road trips do not equate to healthy eating.

9:35 pm – View of Harpers Gentlemens Club and Exotic Carwash [Flickr]
You read that right… Exotic Carwash. We dropped off Kristens roommate to go hang out in Greensboro with her brother, and this is their drop off spot. The brother called. "I’ve been here forever, where are you!" "We’re 2 exits away" "Well hurry up, I feel like I’m going to get mugged."

9:42 pm – Exactly 124,000 miles [Flickr]
Kristen’s Car is perfectly at 124,000 miles at the gas station. Lucky number of the day.

12:46 am – Sheetz for a pit stop [Flickr]
Bathroom – Check, Slushie – Check, Doughnut – Check, and we wonder why America is fat… Cause we’re pigs!

1:29 am – That took way too long [Flickr]
This trip took 7.5 hours, oh man what a lonng drive.

1:30 am – “Home” for the weekend! [Flickr]
Made it to Ashland, VA. Time for this overtime 12 of 12 to be over!

    I LOVE the exotic carwash! Although I kind of understand thinking you're going to be mugged the whole time. There's an exotic "bare and lounge" right as you leave the Austin airport – it's always fun picking up people at our gleaming new airport and then having to go right by the strip club … Welcome to Texas y'all!

    Nice 12 🙂

    Nice photos – not sure I've seen you on 12 of 12 before, so if this is the first time, then welcome! Hope you enjoyed it (and had a good weekend away), and come back!

    I'd love to know how you picked that drop-off point… did he want something to do while he waited?

    Haha, the exotic carwash just so happens to be next to the gas station, that is at the closest exit off I-40. Hilarious though :-p
