that's all, folks.

 We're hooooooome! It was a grand adventure and we had such a great time getting to know each other and our dear old East Coast better over these past few weeks. Here is a grand summary (we were kind of bored during our very last car ride), as well as a few pics to wrap things up:

    • total miles driven: 3,393
    • # cities visited: 10
    • # fill-ups (gas): 9
    • $ spent on gas: $411.40
    • total hours en route: 47 hrs. (and that's just from city-to-city. Yuck.)
    • most states in one day: 5
    • # meals "out": 22 (including 2 Burger Kings, a Zaxbys, a McDonalds, and a Pizza Hut)
    • $ spent on food: $435.12
    • # home-cooked dinners: 7
    • # ice cream joints visited: 5 (plus we got ice cream with dessert at 2 other places...)
    • # coffee stops: 6 (3x Dunkin Donuts, 2x Starbucks, 1x McDonalds)
    • "best" restaurant, based on overall atmosphere, location, prices, selection, and flavor (drumroll please...): Southend Brewery & Smokehouse in Charleston, SC (although there are many honorable mentions, including Cru Cafe, Halo, Black Sheep, Brickwall Tavern, and more!)
  • MISC
    • # miles run: 90.5
    • # of zero-mile days: 4 (don't tell my coach...)
    • fave running destination: it's a tie! both Fairmount and Holmdel parks were great (Philly and NJ, respectively)
    • # things accidentally left behind: just 3! (pair of shorts, towel, and toothpaste; not too shabby!)
    • # pictures taken: 483
    • # mixed CDs made: 3 (a low number based on the fact that the Altima doesn't have an auxiliary input (that's "iPod-pluggy-thing" for you old folks)
    • (# of times we heard those 3 CDs: probably 7 times each)
    • highest gas price seen: $3.85/ga (lowest: $3.28)
    • least favorite road: I-64

Some pics from Charleston day 2:
some wall decor at our hostel. I felt like all 3 applied so well to our trip!

MUSC: the Medical Univ. of South Carolina. Definitely a nice campus!

there is so much to love about this picture.

"Rainbow Row"

$7.4 mill, NBD. We bought it while we were up there. Just a getaway home, ya know?

And finally, after twenty days of suitcase-livin', city-hoppin' fun, we welcomed this view:
(the top part of the sign anyway...)

Well, That's all folks!  Thanks for following along.
