Keep in mind I had bleach blonde hair, a hot pink Victorias Secret tank top in a 1 day old BMW and they were questioning if I was an American. That took forever. By then it was night fall and I was just starting to enter the Texas desert after 17 hours of driving and still had about 6 more hours to go. I was beyond tired. NO LIGHTS on the roads and DEER everywhere. I had to slow from 85mph to about 30-40mph because these stupid deer were just in the roads everywhere. If I hit one I could easily total my car where no one would find me or kill myself. My client advisor kept calling me every few hours to make sure I was awake and alive. I nearly fell asleep at the wheel twice. I had as much redbull in my system in one night than one person does probably in a month. I cried twice out of frustration and exhaustion. I hit a racoon. was not fun in that desert whatsoever. When I finally pulled into my driveway in Louisiana.... I felt like I just won the olympics. I dont know anyone personally that can say they drove for that long straight with no co pilot. So it made me feel amazing that I did it.
That's quite the story.
