Day Four: Lincoln & Final Stats

Day four of Graceland 2017 brought us home through three states (Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota).

We started the day at Lincoln's Home, another national historic site that should not be missed.

The rest of the day was spent on the road. Not all that exciting, but it included hours of conversation with two ladies I seriously enjoy. It was Renata's first American Road Trip, and I hope she got a little taste of this great country of ours.

Final Stats: Graceland 2017

  • Eight states
  • 2,144 miles
  • Three National Park Sites
  • Lots of great food and drinks
  • Three happy ladies
Below is a list of our expenses. We used Cost Split, an app, for tracking our expenses. This app is seriously fabulous. It tracks all your expenses and allows you to split each one as you wish (the others paid for all the gas), and at the end tells you who owes who. It removes all the guess work, and makes being together more enjoyable!
