I made it back from PDC yesterday. We had a great time - looking forward to going back there again. My trip computer was reset during the orientation. When I got home:
28.0 mpg

The route I ended up taking:

Interstate 85 to Atlanta.
Interstate 20 from Atlanta to around Pecos, TX.
Interstate 10 to HWY 210 near Redlands, CA
Interstate 5 to HWY 152
HWY 101 to HWY 85.
HWY 17 to home.

Left around 4PM (3/21) from the BMW Museum and headed to Tuscaloosa, AL. About 350 miles.
Left around 6AM (3/22) from Super 8 in Tuscaloosa and headed to Odessa, TX. About 940 miles. (It started raining when getting coffee before we left Tuscaloosa). Rain finally stopped around Dallas. This was a long day.
Left around 7AM (3/23) from Holiday Inn Express and headed to my brother's place in Phoenix. About 730 miles. (but 2 hours of time change advantage)
3/24 - hung out in PHX. Some in-town driving.
3/25 - left around 5AM to get to Surprise, AZ to get windows tinted. Had breakfast and got to the tinter's place at 6:30. Used All Pro Window tint. Dave had done an excellent job on my brothers 535 in January. He did a great job on the X1. Left the tinter's around 8:45 or so. Got home around 9PM.

I'll do a more detailed trip report in the future.
