Irene micro-update

We are at the Pilot truck stop in Florence, SC (map). They had the cheapest fuel we'll see, at $3.659, and we put in 140 gallons last night when we arrived, in a very frustrating experience that involved swiping three different credit cards six times at two pumps. Nevertheless, we are now fueled and have what we need for whatever Irene throws at us. No water here, though, so we'll have to fill our tank at a later stop.

We had new deployment orders by late yesterday afternoon, and we are now heading for Raleigh, North Carolina. We are due there before noon today. That's all the update I have time to write, at the moment.


  1. It was my understanding that you could go to the counter at Pilot and get your CC pre-approved for the full amount of the fill up. Still not much of an improvement as there is usually a crowd in there.

  2. Don't you hate that? As much as that stuff cost, I find it a big hassle. I think your bus is the coolest!
