Apparently I get good mileage!

A 2006 study by Texas A&M University found that the average American walks about 900 miles per year.

Another study by the American Beer Institute found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

That means, on average, Americans get approximately 41 miles per gallon.

Not bad!

Me, one great wife who navigates & researches places to go & food to eat, one little boy who can't get enough camping, one border collie who refuses to be left behind!
