Yes, that is chocolate covered bacon
Hey Now! Don't lump me in with other deadbeats.It was over about four weeks. I did Florida to Chicago solo, then met up with my girlfriend in Chicago. We sang a lot of really bad pop music, talked about how awful men are (sorry!) and went to dumb attractions like the Roswell UFO museum that you'd otherwise drive right by. Driving is my relaxing time, especially on isolated highways. I really miss it, and disappear for a long drive at least one day with my old car when I go to visit my parents!
Florida to Chicago is terrible drive, especially when you hit Illinois because you still have about 7 days to get from Southern Illinois to Chicago. Central, IL where I grew up and live again is about 3/4 of the way up. I lived in Orlando for 5 years and I think the drive home was about 1,200 miles....
The over the four weeks thing would have been doable but man I would have passed out and wrecked driving by myself from Florida to Chicago.
