Hey guys, just posted a quick update to the trip itinerary - we are a GO.


Right now, the plan is to haul enough oil with us to get through the first ~3200 miles into Denver, then, ideally, one-stop resupply (200+ gallons) during the Jul 2-6 timeframe, then haul ass ~2000 miles home. The last trip we averaged 10mpg-ish.


I'm in touch with Ozzie and we are working on logistics. If that doesn't end up working for him, I'll be in touch with the other folks who spoke up. Really great to know I have options in Indiana and Chicago and Oklahoma on either leg if needed. If so, I will give you guys plenty of notice.


Bill - I love your tank in the back idea. I'm noodling with something similar because I've got haul a LOT of oil - mamma don't like making all the side trip oil stops, y'know? (even though I love meetin' new greasy folk)

Muns,
Wish I could help you out but I'll be in Denver when you are in YNP. I'm alive and well, just did a whole slew of upgrades on my EX, different rig now!!
And I'll be in NY in July, but flying cause work is too crazy to leave for too long.

Our trip was all we hoped it would be - we are so lucky to live in this amazing country - so much to see and do... We ended up with 6024 miles in total and we burned 486 gals of veg and 62 gals of diesel for a combined 11mpg. Not too shabby!. Abbi has thousands of new pics to add to her "adventure" collection and we've all had a ton of quality family fun and have experiences some amazing new places. Luke broke his foot in Yellowstone but that didn't dampened his spirits any. And I made a new greaser friend - thanks Ozzie!
