The Drive Went Well

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

We departed right on time for our off roading weekend adventure. There wasn’t much traffic to speak of. We stopped for 1 stretch break and that was about it. We didn’t even stop for gas. That’s where we almost blew it….for about the last 40 miles of the trip we were stressing out about running out of gas. When we were at about a quarter tank of gas I calculated the amount of gas we had left versus the number of miles left based on Todd’s input. I was on a mission, I wanted to make it on a single tank of gas. at first it semed like we had room to spare. I kept asking Todd how many miles to get to Laughlin. He kept saying 20 miles more….20 more…Well we were sweatin hard becaue there were no gas stations anywhere.

We went down a road without anything for miles. It was getting dark, and we were miles from civilization. It wasn’t looking good but we made it…barely. After putting $100 in gas we went straight to the hotel to check in and get a few minutes rest.

Today we drive.

Our scheduled departure time is 2pm. We want to avoid traffic. My truck is all gassed up & ready to go. I also did all my safety checks like checking all my fluids, checking my tires, and I also cleaned out any extra junk that was taking space in my cab. Since Bronson couldn’t make it, I’m just waiting for Frankie to show up so we can put his bike in my truck. Laughlin….here we come.
