Gonna Take A Little Trip

Taking a road trip anytime soon? If so and if you are curious about how much the gas alone will cost, you might want to check out the Fuel Cost Calculator to receive a quick estimate. All you'll need to do is choose the large city closest to your departure location and then choose the large city closest to your destination city. Finally, you enter the year, make and model of the auto you'll be driving. The program calculates the rest considering the current average gas price in each region of the country.

So, for our Nashville family vacation, the Fuel Cost Calculator let me know that our round trip in my 2001 Buick Regal would be approximately 608 miles, using approximately 21.72 gallons of gas, and costing us $61.92. It is much less than what I expected.Of course, that does nothing to calculate how many miles we'll be driving while seeing the attractions around town!

And, now it is time for some dumb knock knock jokes regarding road trips.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Lettuce who?
Lettuce go on a road trip for our vacation this summer!

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Philip who?
Philip the tank. We've got a long drive ahead.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Seymour who?
You'll Seymour if you stay off the Interstates and stick to the two-lane highways.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Rita who?
Rita map carefully or you may get lost.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Athena who?
Athena lot of beautiful places on our road trip.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Oliver who?
Not Oliver jokes are knock, knock jokes. But right now, that's all we've got.

Don't worry. I'm groaning too!

Cool site. I went back and checked our trip to Austin/San Antonio and back...it was almost dead on...but like you said we did a little extra driving...it was only off by about 100 miles. Very cool. Will come in handy considering we've managed nearly 40,000 miles in driving just this year. :)

I like the glasses too. I also thought your knock, knock jokes were quite creative.

I wonder who came up with such silly things!

Well, thanks for the compliments on the glasses. Some people like 'em. Some people don't. They're just funny to me. I just noticed that blogger had added a new future for polls, so I tried to figure out how I could try it. So, the glasses idea popped up. I'll try to switch the polls out every so often - along with the current book I am reading, so be sure to check out the right column on my blog from time to time.

Liz: I'm so glad you enjoyed the site. Friends send me sites all of the time. Some funny - but mostly ones that everyone would think are dumb. But, some are actually useful. I'll have to check the mileage and cost from here to KC and back.... and use the information soon!!! :)
