Newfoundland Road Trip by the Numbers

We returned safe and sound from our annual epic road trip on Monday. Here is how the trip unfolded, by the numbers….

Miles driven: 5390.7. We thought about driving around for 10 more miles, but that would have been cheating.

Beds slept in: 13. Hotel beds, blow-up mattresses, sofa beds, and ferry bunk beds. You name it, I slept on it!

  1. Hello, Joann! I’m the redhead you met in front of Culver’s when you got back home. Love your blogs. Would like to know which 11 books you read. We’re they all audio books or was someone, other than te driver, the designated reader for the group.
