Trip stats

Here are some stats on our journey from SF to NYC:
We have two delicate items in the cab with us: the staghorn fern and my sourdough starter. They are both still alive at the moment.
In Nebraska, they charge less for premium gas than regular. We asked a local about it and apparently “That’s how they do it here.” OK.
630 miles seems to be a good distance to drive each day. It ends up taking about 11 hours by the time you factor in the one hour we lose each time we change time zones.
Eva’s requirements for driving the truck are that it’s flat, straight, not windy or stormy, there’s daylight and there’s no traffic. Only parts of Utah have passed those criteria and thus, I’ve driven about 90% of the time so far.
Iowa rain storms. You can tell they’re getting bad when people put on their hazard warning lights. When they’re getting really bad, it becomes impossible to see the car in front of you despite it having said warning lights on.
We are currently driving through Ohio.
