Well, after a round trip of 4376 miles, I'm finally home. The truck ran AWESOME!!!
I still need to get the fuel receipts together to see how much it cost me. I kept checking the mileage and it went from a low of 12.6 towing the u-hall to a high of 16.2mpg. That was averaging 75 mph (cruise set). I'll figure out the total cost and mileage and post it later. The most expensive fuel was the last tank at home at $3.12/Gal (what a ripoff) lowest was $2.42 in Cheyane, WY. I travelled through 9 different states, and crossed 13 state lines. I did drive entirely through Rocky Mountain National Park yesterday, what a beautiful place. Highest point was at just over 12,000 ft.
It's going to take me the better part of tomorrow to clean the truck, I believe I caught every bug between Nebraska and Utah.

My drive from Kyla's apartment in Lincoln Nebraska started yesterday at 4:00am Pacific Time and ended this morning at 12:15am in Beaver Utah. 1148 miles in 20 hrs. I left Beaver this morning at 6:00am and got home at 2:15pm.

Now it's laundry and some light cleaning and SLEEP!!!!

Glad to be home, bummer I had to leave the kids in Nebraska, but she got a 5th grade teaching job in the #1 elementary school, in the #1 school district in Lincoln. She worked hard to get the job and were very proud of her and her hubby who also got hired by the same school distric as a mentor/tuitor while he goes to school.

And what does Robin do, she heads off for the day shopping with Vicki and a couple friends (doesn't even stay around to say Hi after 10 days)

Well it looks like I got ALOT of reading to do to catch up, HELLO to all the new folks her on the site (see alot of new names). It's looks like things are back to normal, Thanks Mikey, and I see Sean is up to his usual fun escopades... Sean, Tom is gonna get you GOOD.

Wes, have a great trip, oh heck too much to answer to right now....

I'll be back a little later....

Clark

Well CP...we'll just have to give ya the tee-shirt...

P's & Q's are very important around here, and judging by the amount of smileys I've found since you turned "us" onto them, poor 'ol FD's got some modding to do. Which brings me to my next point right after that last sentence for Mikey's sake...

Good stuff there all you Maynards, but "discretion is the better part of valour", so let's keep it good and clean so Mikey doesn't have to work overtime (when it ain't no fun), right?

I'll drink to that ...who else will?!!!!!

WW fan I'm glad you mentioned it because these tools can easily be taken away from us if we police ourselves.
