Elk City to Joplin

Wednesday April 28, 2010: Day 5, Elk City, Oklahoma to Joplin, Missouri
Via: I40 and I44

We are pretty much half way. We have lots of interesting things to report, but as we mentioned before those longer stories are going to have to wait. For now here a sampling of pictures:

Fuel Added: 2 containers (we figured out it is easier if Christi holds the funnel while Eric pours)

Albuquerque to Elk City

Tuesday April 27, 2010:  Day 4, Albuquerque, New Mexico to Elk City, Oklahoma
Via: I40
Miles: 446

We have gone 1355 miles. We have averaged 55 miles per hour, and 40.1 miles per gallon. We expect those numbers to improve as we keep moving east. We are getting lighter, and we are expecting to drop thousands of feet in elevation on mostly straight roads. Are we going to make it without getting more fuel? It is going to be close…

Fuel added, 2 containers:
