It sounds to me like you both had a good time, but that you might be reading more into the “date” than he is. Did he ever call it a date, or was that just how you interpreted it? Take a look back, and if he never said it was a date, it is likely that he didn’t consider it one.
If it was a date, he might be following the old 72-hour rule that dictates how long a man should wait before contacting someone he has been on a date with, and actually likes. My advice is to wait it out. Give him a few days. If he’s still stalking you on social media, but he hasn’t reached out, feel free to send him an easy-going, friendly message. Don’t ask him to “Define the Relationship” too soon. That’s one of the biggest mistakes women make in dating men.
If he hasn’t reached out in a few days, and he’s no longer following you closely on social media, let it go and move on. He wasn’t that interested. Too many people spend weeks, months, or years tied up in a fantasy relationship with someone who doesn’t return your feelings – don’t fall into that trap. Life is too short to waste your time mooning over someone who isn’t into you.

Your 1st mistake was to travel to see him in the first place! If you're out drinking almost 2 hours away, did you really think you'd be in shape to drive back home? He had you exactly where he wanted you....you accommodated him by travelling to him, and you gave it up on the first date....he doesn't owe you a damn thing! He got what he wanted. And, a man paying for everything on a date is what he us supposed to do. Have a higher expectation from the men you date...but most of all, for yourself.
I think you have unfortunately been had by a charmer. He was nice and you enjoyed yourself. But he was just in it for one thing. I suggest do not contact him and move on. His response of "ha ha" says it all
