Most scholarly ski road trip ever

We just finished up skiing at Timberline and Mount Hood Ski Bowl (reviews will be posted tomorrow). In the morning we leave for the 11 hour drive to Tahoe so it seemed appropriate to recap our trip so far, by the numbers.

At this point we've traveled somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 miles, and although Roxane's "Check Engine" light has started blinking alarmingly on a few hills, everything still seems to be running smoothly. The roof box is overflowing with skis and poles and the back is stuffed to the point of explosion.

So far the trip by the numbers:

Times we have almost died: 25.7

Amount spent on food in Govy: $19434.65

Times we have been politely asked to leave areas we were not supposed to be in: 3
