My wife and I drove 1100 miles overnight arriving home mid day Sunday.  I went bowling today with my bowling buddy after a two month lay off and couldn't hit the pocket for beans.  By the 4th game my butt was dragging and he beat me the last two which he rarely ever does.  I ended the season with a 199 average and I doubt I even averaged 160 today.

Bowling while your butt is dragging sucks big time.  For those of you who care to know we drove from Tucumcari NM to our place in Ky stopping only for gas, coffee and potty breaks for my wife and our latest dog.  He is a good traveler, she is not.

Good to see you back young fellow.  That is dangerous to drive 18+ hours with out a good rest.  Glad you made it OK.

I have made the drive from Phoenix Az to our place in Ky in 28 hours when my ex step daughter in law took one of the grandbabies and failed to return her, and when we bought our place in Ky I drove from the White Mountains of Az  to here multiple times getting everything moved.  The first trip we were on the road for 34 hours hauling 5 dogs 3 cats and two horses as well as personal items we needed.  Usually I travel alone.

for the final week of the 2016-2017 season, I was flying back from LA.  I literally went from the airport to the bowling alley for league.  I had league high average.  As it turned out, the long travel day caught up to me, and I had my worst week of the season, a 583 series, which was the only time I was below 600 the entire season.  I also lost league high average on that night too, as the 2nd place guy jumped ahead with a 750ish series.  

I will never bowl on a traveling day again, that was nuts!

I get tired driving to my daughters house in Troy Mi.  It takes 45 minutes.

Last month my son and I drove from where I live (Rochester NY) to eastern New Hampshire on a Wednesday (about an 8 hour drive), then turned around and made the drive back the next day.  Arrived home at 4pm, turned around and bowled at 6:30pm that night.  Neither my son nor I bowled for beans...tired from the trip.  Never again will I bowl the same say I travel!

In our minds we thought we could do it, but the body says otherwise, lol.
