I was sleeping when I Dad woke me up, asking me if there was a gas station nearby. I check the GasBuddy app on my phone to be greeted by this. I had to screenshot this to show proof of this gas station; I’ve never heard of it before despite traveling here previously, and it was only because of that app that I now know of its existence.

 

The name itself gave me a good laugh. I’m not sure what El Cheapo sells, but they’re pretty low, considering the rest of the prices. But too bad, Sunoco has you beat.

**Technical note: the metadata on the screenshot shows 2:52AM, even though the actual screenshot says 3:52AM. This is because of Daylight’s Saving Time, and I’ll be sticking with the shown time for consistency.

I don’t quite remember where this is, but this is headed up on the way home somewhere on I-95. Pretty sure we left Florida at this point; while the photo is blurry, you can see we had 140 miles till the South Carolina I-26 exit. Also you get a good shot of my Acer Iconia A100 tablet. Works pretty well as a GPS once you solve it’s power issues and get it’s map data.

On our way out back home, Dad decided that we sightsee at least one place. So we had an earlier start than usual. While we were heading up north, I passed this guy with an RC plane on the back of a trailer. Kinda impressed that the plane was just fitted like that. Admittedly, that’s the first time I saw that big of an RC plane in person; it was always limited to Youtube videos or photos online.

This is one of the few photos I took of my WALL-E figure when on my trip to Florida. This particular time, while I was going to grab a sky photo, I saw that his reflection was clear on the sunglasses, even with the sky behind him through the window. That’s an opportunity I didn’t pass up.
