Congratulations Paul on your safe trip home.. How many miles did you end up driving and did you calculate the mileage to see what your MPG's were?
Total miles for the trip home was 2401, running down 97 from Redmond to 5 to I-10.
Left on Friday, 3/4/2011 around 1 in the afternoon and arrived Home 3/8/2011 around 1 in the afternoon (stopping each night at a motel)
Fuel mileage works out to 9.3 MPG for the MC 9 with no seats driven flat out 70's whenever the road would allow.
That was better than I expected but the PO had told me when I left to expect 10 MPG. He said it was a runner and it is. I hate to jinx this project by saying anything optimistic at all so I won't but it was a great trip home! And, I even got her put in the driveway all by my lonesome on the first shot, (which, if you saw the street/driveway/gate opening/etc. in my neighborhood you would understand) so..... Life Is Good!
