It was the part of the Woodrow Wilson parkway that was single lane and didn't become two lanes until a mile or so later. I'll keep that in mind and the aforementioned comment about going to third gear, hope shifting that low doesn't kill my MPG. I'm going to be playing Ingress and practicing my hill starts this weekend at a local high school's driver course, which is open to anyone.

I'll keep everyone informed how my 3 hour interstate drive goes today.
