I have no question just sharing a photo 73 Dodge Executive

What fun we had, 23 Executive Mini with a 318 10-12mpg. From Michigan to Painted Forest, Grand Canyon to California then up thru the Tetons, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Cody Wyoming whitewater rafting, Badlands and then back to Michigan, all in 14 days.

Me too, Sounds like you really had a good time and a lot on miles. What was your average drive time?

Not sure if the question is for me, but first off we had three drivers. We had two long 18 & 24 hours days on the road moving from one location to another. Most of the time was 8-10 hours or some days less. This is my best recollection since it was 30 years ago. When we were scuba diving we had four drivers and would run from SW Michigan to Big Pine Key FL and those were 24-26 hour runs.

Yes for you, sorry I thought you just bought it and this was your first trip. Do you still have it?
I know what those drives are like I used to drive over the road in a 18 wheeler. GO GO GO,
Tim

We no longer have it we sold it around 1982 for a 1979 Itasca which we had until we started great lakes boating. We towed a 18' Celebrity bow rider or a jeep Renegade sold all and bought a 24.5' Regal cruiser. Then the money started flying out of the wallet, we moved up to a 29' Cruisers INC and then a 35' CHRIS CRAFT. We are full timers now in a 2005 40' Diplomat, our drive days are 7-9 hours but we did have an 18 hour day trying to stay out of the snow in the higher altitudes on our way from MI to CA last fall.

Wow is that Chris a Contesa(sp) or Catalina? I was looking at them before I bought the MH. Just love them.I had the ski boat and the rest were Cruisers up to a 50 Gibson, Twin 454ers and that thing could move for a 50 footer. One guy had a Cruisers Inc and took it from Mpls to St. Louis, That would have been a blast to do that.
Now I can do it in my 30ft land yacht. and I stay drier too...
Thanks for the throw back,
Tim

That is a 350 Double Cabin Catalina, our longest cruise was from St Joe MI to Racine WI then up through Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, Sister Bay, Washington Island, then up to Fayette MI in the Upper Peninsula and back down to Washington Island for fuel and provisions for the crossing to Frankfort MI, then back to St Joe. We lived on the boat for seven summers from April 15th through October 15th and that was how we knew that we could live full time in a 40' coach.
