Got up at 3:30AM, Hit the road at 4:00am ↓↓↓

Here i am, 4:01 AM ↓↓↓

Starting Mileage: 0000 ↓↓↓

Stopped in at the Travell America truck stop to grab a quick snack ↓↓↓


Saw this crazy lifted Honda sedan at the TRAVEL AMERICA truck stop on I-10 ↓↓↓


THEN IT WAS BACK ON THE ROAD!
Out ran this train and snapped a couple pictures... i'm such a train nut!




And finally i get to the show! ↓↓↓










AND NOW for the ending mileage ↓↓↓


There are plenty more pictures of the show, but i think i have enough here to last a while.
ENJOY!

We started at 5.00 am and got the last spot out front to park. I bet you got the best mileage of any one who drove there!

Took more gas to get there than to get back home, took me about 3.5 gallons to get to the show (which is just over a tank) and just under a tank to get back.

It is slightly up hill all the way to Tuscon. My old diesel Rabbit Pickup noticed it. It seemed like I was flying on the way home opposed to struggling to get there.

Same here, max speed on the way there was 74MPH on they way back i hit over 80mph

Which is pretty good for a 240lb person on a 250cc bike, with about 4 extra pounds or so worth of VW parts under the seat Cool

You forgot the picture of the D3 guys dodging out of your way when your front wheel started sliding in the gravel turning into the parking lot. Razz
