Staying Awake For 29 Hours

We left from Lapeer, Michigan at around 8 p.m., and by the time we get to Detroit, it was already very late at night. I enjoyed very much the sight down in Detroit.
.
It was around 2 a.m. when we saw the awesome sights down in Cleveland, Ohio. My husband keep telling me to get some sleep because it was going to be a long trip, and I said, "I don't want to sleep because I don't want to miss a thing."
.
There was not much to see while we were driving down to Kentucky, but I was still up. We took few stops for stretching and switched turn in driving.
.
On our way down to Tennessee was very foggy. Although there were nothing to miss to see because of the fog, I still didn't took some sleep, because I sat beside the driver seat, and I was avoiding the possibility that the driver will be sleepy if I was sleeping, which is very dangerous because of the thick fog. So, I had decided to stay awake for the sake of the driver.
.
It took us 29 hours driving from Michigan to Florida. There were three of us in the car; my husband, his cousin and I. They switched turn every 5 hours in driving while the other were sleeping (lying down at the back seat), and all the time, I was there beside the driver's seat, have to stay wide awake to support them. However, I enjoyed the whole trip very much and I thanked God for our safety and fun.
