i got into chicago at about 430 last night. 590 miles, and 22 or so gallons of gas.

according to fuelly on my first fuel up i got almost 26mpg with a reported 50mph headwind the entire trip up set on cruise at 75.

that wind was a bitch. 57 is one big corn field and we were at the mercy of the wind. lauren thought she was gonna puke a few times lol. pretty much the entire trip, my car that tracks perfectly straight wouldnt do so unless the wheel was at about 10 o'clock.
