Ahhhh......Her fur looks so s-o-f-t....I want to pet her @Pixey.

 

I never got another cat yet after mine passed January of 2019.  Taking a little pet break.  But soon....

OMG!  Look who I bumped into...

@BoltBait and @toe_head2001!

 

I was driving half way across the country and stopped in Salt Lake City, Utah for the night. We met up for lunch (and a nice chat about CodeLab) before I headed out toward California.

That's so cool @BoltBait and @toe_head2001  When will you be in Florida @BoltBait ?

 

If you are in Utah isn't @MJW living there too :)  Maybe give him a call 😄

Never?  Man, driving from California to North Dakota to visit my daughter was far enough! 24 hours of driving... each way... ugh.

Actually, @null54 was invited, but he declined due to Covid-19 concerns. Totally understandable. He was missed though!

Woah, it makes us on smaller isles appreciate the vastness ... my kids are only 5 hours away on a round trip albeit in different directions and I still haven't seen my son since Christmas (he refuses to come home as he lives in a 'hotspot'  and my daughter only twice 

 

Hope you enjoyed your time with your daughter @BoltBait

As short as the time was, yes, I enjoyed spending time with my daughter and my grand-kids.

 

We enjoy playing board games.  We played Patchwork and Rivals for Catan which is a 2 player card game based on the Settlers game. It was just as fun (frustrating, ha!) as the original.

 

Me with my daughter, @lizzy_1_year:

You've got a very pretty daughter (I want her T-Shirt ...)

I must be getting old, she only looks about 12 😉

 

Out of curiosity, what did the Prius actually return MPG wise on a long run, compared to the official figures ?

Here is a picture I took of the dashboard after about 1000 miles on the trip. I had reset TripA for the purposes of measuring the MPG for my trip:

 

TripA.jpg

Sorry for the blurriness of the picture, but I was driving at the time and had to take the picture with one hand... I cleaned it up the best I could.

 

For those across the pond:

 

80 MPH = 129 KPH

1051.1 Miles = 1691.6 Kilometres

51.1 MPG = 21.7 KML

91*F = 32.8*C

 

Official MPG of the Prius is 55MPG, so close. I did notice that it gets better MPG when using the cruise control.

 

I, typically, get around 48-49MPG (20.4-20.8 KML).

... and could get more if closer to the optimal driving speed 🤣

I'm guessing you're on 17/ 18" alloys ?  I think the 15's are slightly higher figures

 

Still that's not too shabby.  

 

I checked mine and it's official is 64 mpg but actually returning 52.1, but then there's no dual carriage ways or motorways, just A roads and people who can't drive above 40 on all the corners ... or even the straights ...

I found it a few weeks ago at Walmart, your local store probably has one! (Edit: My dad pointed out you live in the UK. Maybe Asda, Amazon, or Etsy then!) 

 I'm 23, but I do get that a lot 😉 My husband loves to tell the story of the time we went to a restaurant and they gave me the "children under 12 get in free with a parent" discount. 😝

Whoa... @toe_head2001 looks like a rock star! And @BoltBait your daughter is gorgeous. 

 

Long trips though, oof. I used to travel from Wisconsin to Alabama every summer on the bus, and it's about 24 hours that way too. I feel your pain.


Thank you so much! I did really enjoy seeing my dad, although hopefully he won't need to make the trip again! After Coronavirus calms down a bit I'll be flying our kids in to see him more often 😄

WOW!  Love all of the above!  <3

 

@toe_head2001... not at all how I imagined you'd look.  You're so...young!  I see why you are 'toe-head'.

 

@BoltBait... your daughter and grandchildren are adorable.  I'm glad you had some time with them!

 

@lizzy_1_year... your children are so precious! Looks like you have your hands full.

And you have a picture with Leonard Nimoy!  He is sorely missed.  Loved his little 'voice' cameos on Big Bang Theory, not to mention Star Trek.

 

Take care of yourself everyone!

Close ... Wales next to the rest of the UK.   😉 😁

 

Thanks.  After seeing the full Tee (I don't like many people as I get older)  I had to find one, and seeing so many different styles with the same text I think I'll design my own, so thanks for planting the seed

 

Beautiful kids you've got, your Dad must be very proud of you all.   

Love the dining out story 😁
