We wrote earlier about how much we hate eating fast food, and that a long road trip on America's interstate highways almost ensures that you'll eat some fast food, whether you like it or not.
In his most recent six-hour trip, Tim ate breakfast immediately before he left and planned to stop somewhere (hopefully a Blimpies or a Subway) for a quick refueling.

He just took a deep breath and drove on. The parking lots and gas lines at the next four turnpike service areas were even more crowded. It was Sunday after all. And the leftovers at home tasted even better on a very empty stomach.
