    After driving 16 hours today, we finally made it to our first destinarion -- Mitch's parents in PA. We could tell we were getting closer to home a few hours before arriving when we stopped at the first Sheetz spotted and saw Yuegling and Tastykakes.

    1600 miles and 28 hours logged in the truck so far.Read more

    Alabama hotel overnight pitstop

    After 12 hours on the road, including a detour around Louisiana's flooded I-10, we stopped for a recharge in Birmingham, Alabama. Fortunately there was one double parking spot left for the Penske truck to squeeze into.

    Our Houston Home

    After living in Texas for 7 years, it was sad to leave so many great friends and memories, but exciting to start something new! How better to start our new adventure than a quality road trip together with all of our junk packed in the back of a 26 foot diesel Penske truck. Thank you Shell for our first jobs, our first time meeting each other, and the sweet trucker gear!

    Fun Facts:
    The Penske horn is almost as intimidating as a Honda Civic.

    The truck is governed at 71mph. Averaged 9mpg over the trip.
