Thanks for the tips/info fellas. Plugs aren't fouling and when I checked it again today, before adding oil, it was higher than before. I called my mechanic and he said I prolly didn't let the oil settle back into the pan when I checked it the first time. He basically said "don't sweat it", especially if I was "hot footing" it ( I was ) during the trip. He told me that I had one of the tightest motors he's seen for a car with my mileage. I added 1/2 a quart and it's back to just below the max mark on the dip stick.

Life is good.
