I just drove from Georgia to Pennsylvania yesterday. I am sure getting to NC from VA cannot take THAT long :p

For pole vaulting it is worth it to make th road trips. I've slept in my car a few times before track meets. :P

lol. it wouldn't if my parents did not drive so slow. however, my best friend (and my pv relay partner) does have a mercedes...(lol and her license). i'm still just a wittle soph. so i'm workin on the license here. :P is there some kind of a website that has info about it? i really am interested. want to here something funny? my two friends had to go get weighed before the vault started (for obviouse safety reasons) and one was about 5 pounds over the weight on his pole. he didn't have another pole w/ him so he put on every peice of clothing that he and his friend owned and ran around the track for like 20 min (in 96 degree weather). when he went back to get weighed for the second time, he was 5 pounds lighter. talk about crazy! he had on like 5 pairs of sweat pants and long sleeve t-shirts in the 96 degree weather!!
