367 miles under my Wheels!
My first day on the road went pretty well. Had to get back in the rhythm of pulling the trailer. It can be a little stressful with 3200 pounds of metal looming up behind you. It was slow going...any incline (ie..mountains, etc.) means I slow down to about 45mph. Plus it is interesting to watch the gas gauge move down. I am averaging only about 9-10 miles per gallon. Came very close to running out of gas before I hit my destination. On this route.. (AZ 93 to Interstate 40) it can be a long way between gas stations. But all in all things went well. I ended the day at a KOA (Kampgrounds of America) in Barstow, CA. It is windy and dusty...gee, reminds me of home. LOL. Now I am going to have some dinner, a tall cool drink and hit the sack early. Life if good!
