Our final stretch home, from this 11–day journey by car to the West.
We veer off towards Holly Springs and Tupelo, Mississippi
Rolling Truck Stop & Cafe near Flatwood and Carbon Hill, Alabama on Interstate 22
Chevron in Nauvoo, Alabama
Interstate 20 East Birmingham – Fountain Heights
Center right is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Birmingham and made me think of Uncle Bo Whaley who worked as an FBI agent for 20 years...
We pretty soon got to change our watches again, one hour later!
Around 16:30 I was in Atlanta, Georgia veering off of Interstate 20 onto Interstate 75 South...
We both needed a human pit stop and with that we always filled up our car.
This was at Shell Oil in Jackson, Georgia
Just have to rave about these healthy snacks from Costco.
Pains au Chocolat
Product of France
No artificial colors
No artificial flavors
No high fructose corn syrup
European bakery items are by far not as sweet as American and this is so important for me with diabetes type 2 and CKD stage 4.
Felt great during the entire trip and we both didn't change weight.
Often the high sugar level goes hand in hand with high sodium; a no–no for both of us, also for Pieter since his heart attack and open–heart surgery on September 3, 2010.
On July 16, I started driving with the mileage on 13,633
Home by 19:17 and the total mileage was now 18,602
My total mileage 4,969 mi or 7,996.83 km
Fuel Economy for our Infiniti QX50 was 28.9 MPG
28.9 U.S. Mile Per Gallon =
12.29 Kilometers per Liter
Total trip and 8 dots for where we spent the night(s).
We passed through 16 states:
- South Dakota
- New Mexico
Our car had its oil change and rotating of wheels done a couple of days later.
Having the appointment with Infiniti, we opted for a stay at Hyatt Regency Suites in Marietta and enjoy a swim...
But our good luck with perfect weather seemed to be OVER with, as it RAINED!
This was next morning from our room, Atlanta skyline in the distance.
To the left is our loyal Infiniti QX50 parked, after the check up.
LOVED driving this car, perfect in the mountains and not a single issue with it.
Hope you enjoyed traveling along and maybe learned something for not putting off things, before you will regret it.
Shared memories with your spouse are always double joy!
