The Trip By The Numbers

We arrived home just before 5am this morning. The drive home took far longer than the trip up did! For the most part, it was an uneventful drive-and one that Ed did the lion's share (thanks, Honey!).

So, the numbers of the title?
2174 miles traveled. So what if 66 miles of it was to go back home to get Chef's Nintendo DS?
