9.54 hrs of driving , 11 hrs total with stops/fuel and a total of 139 gallons of diesel. We are home!!

Dang Myrtle Lynn, we figured you drove 640 miles back to Athens, and you used 139 gallons of diesel. That's about 4.6 MPG. We thought we were getting bad mileage on the Sprinter at 13.

It was great everyone, and meet the new folks.

There's no free lunch, though. Figure that "9.54 hours of driving" is actually 9.54 hours that the engine was running (Ford has a timer that works that way) so that's 67 mph AVERAGE for the entire time the engine was running. I'm guessing you have to burn some diesel to push that rig the 80+ it had to hit at least a few times to get that average speed. Sheesh, even on the total trip that's a bit over 58 mph average speed. You can break speed limits but physics won't let you cheat.

Here are a few of my pictures!
Thanks for the great pictures!
