When I coached track at Texas-Pan American we had a lot of long road trip. A 20 ounce Dr. Pepper works well. Also make sure the AC is turned up, if your still sleepy stick you head out the window. If that fails sleep.
Made it tonight. Only got tired the last 30 minutes. Definitely never done the stick my head out the window thing. One of the dumbest thing I ever did in my life was when I was in high school I remember being on tollway in Dallas and saying to myself, "I'm so tired I can just close my eyes for a second and get a little nap." Fortunately I snapped out of it and am hear to talk about it. I'm convinced males under the age of 18 shouldn't be allowed to drive.

Are there any killer bees stowing away in your vehicle? When I was a kid in the 1970s, I read that they were coming to America in a few decades from South America, with Texas a likely entry point into the USA. Might be a bit behind schedule.
When I lived in Flagstaff I think the first reports of the killer bees entering the US occurred. Don't remember much about them since then.
Where are you living in NY(C?) and how large an apartment? Does she make more money than you? Is she more famous (is that possible)?
What's your running mileage these days and how does it compare to your car mileage?
What are you going to do with the truck in NY(C?)
Apartment is big for NY. 2BR.
Never ask someone how much money they make, but one of the reasons I'm moving to NY now is it makes sense for her job and I can work anywhere there is internet.
Was thinking today how in college when I drove cross country I somehow fit in 10+ miles of running as well. Very little running mileage of late. Will be nice to get out of Texas heat.
Truck will be sold once I get to NY.
I didn't drive quite as far as you to get to school, but one thing I do on long drives is stop and run somewhere, usually about 10 miles, assuming there is a park or trail within 15 mins or so of the interstate. I've used college campuses and just ran randomly around the town around them too. It breaks up the monotony of the drive and makes it less tiring.
