The more you know

With the help of my dad, I recently completed a move (and drive) from Washington, DC to Madison, WI. Here’s some things 1,000 miles of driving taught me:

– West Virginia: It’s a state that makes you happiest when you’re leaving it.

– Ohio: Drivers maintain a speed of 50 mph on the highway. Drivers also maintain a speed of 50 mph in parking lots.

– There are restaurants called “Beefaroo?”

– A Bob Evans restaurant salad consists of fried chicken tenders covered with barbecue sauce placed on top of lettuce.

– Watching the golf channel in the hotel workout room is boring – except when there are medieval rock show interludes. (It happened. Really, it did.)

– McDonald’s coffee is surprisingly good and rather addictive.

– Do not attempt to eat yogurt in a moving vehicle. I repeat: Do not attempt.

– Illinois has a penchant for signs with pro-gun phrases that rhyme.
