Took a good portion of Route 66.
Never been on the Historic Sections before.
Day 1
Left St George Utah Tues aprox. 2pm headed back south to Vegas because everywhere else was getting snow. Very high winds made it fun for the first few hours of driving.
Spent our first night in Winslow Arizona Walmart 28 degrees

Day 2 on interstate 40
Un eventful. Settling in very quickly with the new RV.
Air Ride suspension and brakes are absolutely amazing.
I've never felt so good after driving so far.
Spent the night in Amarillo Texas Walmart

Day 3
More wind in Oklahoma.  But so much nicer driving the freightliner compared to the Kodiak.
Finally getting the hang of filling both 50 gallon fuel tanks to the max.
 First 2 fill ups were a Fuzz shy of full!
Just settling in now at Walmart # 3 Collinsville, Illinois off I70

It is a super nice coach, you could live in this one pretty easily.

Taking your sweet time getting home, enjoy the drive.

M2
350 HP Merc, ambulance package, 6 speed Allison 4th gen push button

1,800 miles into the trip we found the Economy Mode on the transmission, rides nice and easy and better mileage!

We just got charged double on the t-way because we are over 7'-6".... has anyone ever heard of that? Now they are charging for air space on the t-way? I think Erik's work van is taller than that!

High vs low, you bet!
53' trailers get charged 2x a 48' too - pre-ezpass they would actually hand you two toll tickets.

Thruway authority only doesn't seem greedy if you're a passenger car.
