Nice, we just did 2200 miles from WY to WA and back, I had to get a rock chip in the windshield fixed.


I do have to have to wash it, I guess we could call that a problem.


Maybe I got as lucky as you.

Oops. Don't know why I read Russell's post as a trip to Yosemite rather than Yellowstone. Sorry Russell! Anyhow, I hope it's trouble-free too!

Admittedly the worst was probably when we were approaching Tulsa on US 412. Folks traveling in cars probably think what rough roads, but those of us pulling a large house tend to feel every bump.

To give credit there were miles and miles of beautiful roads, many having undergone reconstruction in the past few years.
Jim,

I haven't been on 412 for sometime, but I believe you. There are places on I-35 in OKC that are plum scary. That I-10 on the western side of Louisiana is like riding a roller coaster every few feet!

OK has a good excuse for piss poor roads.....low road tax.....I sure like fueling up there for sure.

BTW I don't tell everybody this....cause if the word got out . I was born in Ponca City, have relatives in Del, Moore, Norman, OKC, Ponca, and the like. That might explain my bad behavior!!!! rockin gettin' closer to 6000 by the post!!!
