Mile High Mileage

From the time we left Bellevue, WA on September 1, I’ve been watching my gas mileage. The only way I could possibly afford to make this book-signing trip across the country was to drive the Prius, a car notably lacking in power, but great on gas mileage. Our first day out, we averaged nearly 42 miles per gallon, gaining as much as 6,000 feet in elevation in that first 450 miles to Missoula. From there on, I watched as the gas mileage went up on the handy little digital readout so considerately provide for my entertainment by Toyota. By the end of the second day, in Forsyth, MT, we were up to 43 miles per gallon….

Read “The Rubricant” daily, including this post, as I move into the final week of this exciting cross-country author tour. Just 1600 miles to go!

I may never reach 43.8 mpg again, but I have reached the heights!
