Once again, sorry for the length of time between posts. Two weeks ago, I was in Minnesota for work. When I got to the rental car place in the airport, they were out of mid-size cars, so they gave me a premiumn car instead, at no extra charge. Check out my whip while I was in Minnesota!
At the BK near my hotel in Minnesota, I found 1 quarter and 3 pennies.
On my last few trips, I have been renting a Garmin GPS device when I rent my car. It comes in handy, and I no longer have to print maps and such. I have enjoyed it so much, that I ended up buying one for myself.
But on this trip, I found out that I could use the Garmin to search for Car Washes in the area and get directions. So now when I have some time to kill before appointments, I can search for car washes in the area. On this trip I ventured to the Towne Center Car Wash (On Yankee Doodle Ave, fun road name, huh?) and found 2 quarters, 2 dimes, 7 pennies.
Back in St. Louis I found 1 dime in front of Wal-Mart, 1 penny at Schnuck's and 2 pennies at the Scrubby Duck.
On Sunday I went to Busch Stadium for a Cardinals game and found 1 quarter and 1 dime near concession stands. After the game I found 1 quarter under a seat.
Finally, this week I was in Iowa for business. I had some time to kill on Wednesday night, so I stopped by the Hi Speed Car Wash, which I noticed when we were driving into our hotel. At first I was unhappy, because I thought that I found a token for the car wash, which wouldn't count toward the totals. But I was very suprized and happy to find out that it was a Sacagawea Dollar Coin, my first of the race! As they say in the Simpsons, it can be turned into the bank for a real dollar! I also found 7 pennies at the Hi Speed Car Wash.
Total since last post - $2.85
Total for the Race - $225.34
