Waah... Everytime I drive through it, I'm floored by what a wide state Tennessee is. And then I forget. Eight hours! 420 miles! Lessee... Caddy gets about 22 mpg... 420 / 22 * 2 * $3.40.... I get $129.82. Tack on $60 for a hotel. Round to $190. Prolly need to eat something.... several times in fact. But then, we'd have to eat even if we didn't go. But, it would't all be eating out. Let's say that the diff is a mere $15. Call it $205. Now, checking prices at Buckaroo... Hrm, a standard fedora is... gosh. $205! I know folks out west feel like the east is dinky... I grew up in Texas (in the big part). I hope I'll get to Covington at some point, but I don't want to put off getting a proper hat until then.
