    Default Back in Minnesota

    Just thought that I would share that I'm back in Minnesota, safe and sound.

    1391 miles driven, 140 gallons of fuel burned, for a average fuel econemy of 9.9 mpg. why so low?

    pulling the trailer in my signature, and my gross weight was 11,800lbs.

    I had a fairly stiff headwind from Ohio all the way to the spot where I74 turns north to Iowa.

    made in out of Virginia before the ice and snow there, and after some snow and ice in Iowa, could not have timed it better.

    I have a job lined up in Iowa about 2 hours south of my parents house, and I'm toying with buying a house down there.

    thought I would share for those who may be interested.
