2010 will be known as the "year of the road trip" in our house. We have actually been traveling for appointments for the past three years along with making trips to visit Sean when he was away, but 2010 will take the top prize for mileage.
We (and by "we" of course I mean "I") will have driven roughly 12,781 miles by the end of August this year. This calculation just includes round-trip road miles, not daily miles.
Sean currently has an appointment once a week in Sioux Falls, so adding in those trips through the remainder of the year, we will reach a grand total around 19,277 miles (daily driving to school and work, etc. averages 12,000-15,00 miles per year--so we would really be closer to 34,277!! ).
In addition, Sean and I flew to DC in January and will return in August. Sean and Erin went skiing in Snowmass, CO in March. Sean went to Colorado Springs for the Rocky Mountain State Games in July. In August Sean and Keeley went to a summer sports camp in Birmingham, Alabama. We went to Kansas in March for appointments and will return later this month.
Does anyone else think this is ridiculous?
