In further reviewing the route and elevation changes, it looks like those from the south are planning on hitting Lubbock, then Amarillo, and to Albuquerque in Day 1. Leaving Friday night, April the 31st 2017, that would probably put us in Albuquerque Saturday in time to find food and sleep. Sunday on to Moab. I was thinking of mixing in a rest / exploring day at Arches State Park which is close. Thoughts?

If I give you guys an address would you mind stopping and taking a leak on my ex's front door? I paid dearly for that door, you have my permission. Back on topic, watch for popo from Sweetwater to Post if you go that route, they are total jackasses, especially in the Snyder area. Training ground for rookies.

Quote from: KeystoneSmooth on July 19, 2016, 01:34:34 pmI personally will be using my new to me 1500HD. From Marble Falls towing exp, I honestly think that the 50-55 range will be what I can safely do over a long period. I will need to be in 3rd the whole time until we start descending into Moab, where I might be able to slip into OD. I will most likely be the slow dog on the highways if everyone else is running a diesel.
