We've returned from our July excursion & here are a few basics for the trip. Total miles were 4,100 as was stated above. Average fuel mileage with the Nissan was 20.26 mpg. Average driving was 178 miles a day, some days were longer, some no miles at all. We took too much stuff, didn't need it all!
The trip was from Tucson to Grand Teton, Yellowstone & then Glacier National Park, with a few stops in between. One memorable stop was to see Tony Latham in Idaho at Meadow Lake. Tony & my wife, Alice.
Another was a visit with a high school buddy I hadn't seen in 45 years at Jackson Hole & his family. This is Randy & his brother David.
We had a great trip, no problems with the truck or trailer. The air bags & new brakes both did their jobs well for the truck & the trailer held up well. Nice to know things work out if the planning is good & luck holds. The brakes were really solid on some of the bigger 6% grades, no fade or excessive heat, but I drive pretty carefully. Slotted & cross-drilled rotors with ceramic pads are worth the price if you don't have brakes on the trailer.
Here are a few random shots from the excursion.
There's so much out there to see & do & a teardrop makes it really easy to set up & take down when it's time to leave. Just do it!
