I’m not really a numbers person, but that’s mainly when it comes to doing something with them, such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, or (heaven forbid) dividing! But numbers can be interesting and can help to tell stories.
So, here are a few numbers from our road trip to Newfoundland:
- We drove 5760.4 miles.
- We drove through/across 14 states and provinces.
- We slept in 11 different beds.
- We crossed the Cabot Strait by ferry 2 times.
- We paid $93.00 in tolls driving across Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, and Maine (and back). We Minnesotans aren’t used to paying tolls!
- We saw 7 icebergs (2 of them “up close and personal”)
- We saw 5 (we think) whales.
- There were at least 3 times I nearly drove off the road laughing at things my brother-in-law said.
- I read 4 books.
It was a fantastic trip. When we got home last weekend, I said that the next time we have a hankering to go back to Newfoundland, we should consider flying.
My 92-year old mom said, “so, are we going to drive to Alaska next summer?”
And finally, a few more photos:
