I live in MN, and last weekend me and three other friends decided that we were going to drive the the closest Sonic, which is in Fort Dodge, Iowa. We were tired of seeing all the commercials and hearing how good it was so we had to go. It took about 3 1/2 hours each way, around 300 miles, to get the there. I remember getting up at 7am and leaving at 8am because I had to be at work at 5 pm. It was worth it and I would do in again, but not a work day for me atleast.

Dang, that's like $25 in gas, much less the cost of the meal. It's good, but I don't know if its good enough for me to drive that far just for Sonic. :-o

I was about $31 in gas money, plus the meal, and I stopped at McDonalds both ways (I have problems when it comes to fast food), so all in all I spent about $45 on the trip. But like I said I had to have it, it was driving me crazy.

Funny because I just got done watching Herald and Kumar go to White Castle. I probally went a further distence, but no were near the same experiences.

I really don't think there are any around me.

The only time I've ever seen one was the time I was in Kansas. 8-o

There are 5 within 10 miles of my house. 2 of them are in Laporte, a town of about 24,000 people.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
