Mostly, it is a very easy drive along I 40; flat ...
... So Harry had only managed about 5 miles when we found ourselves on a residential road where John was even more uncomfortable with his driving than normal. Harry would have to wait until later in the holiday until he could beat the eleven miles his sister Zoe had driven me two years ago.
