Cross Country Adventure

I will be leaving the great state of Florida tomorrow to head back to school in Wyoming. I will update this thread when I am able to while traveling.

Be safe brother.

How many days you plan on driving? Do you have any pre-planned stops or things to see/do along the way?

I plan on driving about 2 and a half. I leave Florida tomorrow and I will stop in Memphis to pick up my cousin and stay the night. Leave Memphis Friday and power all the way to Denver and stay with some family there. Then Saturday drop my cousin off in boulder Colorado and then head to Laramie.

Cool cool. I'll be in Memphis tomorrow night WORKING (can't wait for that).

Weather is looking like possible freezing rain until about noon.

I made it. Computer died last night and I didn't feel like finding my charger in my packing. I didn't hit any freezing rain on the way to memphis. I think I stayed in the southwestern area of memphis on Harbert street.

I have since now made it to Hays Kansas for the night. Hit a small snow storm between Wichita and Hays but noting major.

I have also now realized that a supercharger is 100% necessary on the 4 banger to go up the slightest incline loaded up.

The final push will begin tomorrow and I should arrive in Laramie WY in the mid afternoon.

P.S. I am loading some pics to the computer and will post within 30 min.

Here is a picture of my pizza I ate in memphis at a restaurant call Bosco's. It had Italian sausage, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese.



First fill up. Pulled out a whooping 16.7 mpgs



My cousins pugs



I did see one license plate that I was unable to get a picture of because of the lighting and driving alone but it read " RIDIN D". It was an older lady and it made me bust out laughing to see that.

I tried to get a picture but it kept reflecting light so all I got was glare.

At bosco's we sat right at the pizza oven so I got to see them make all of the wood fire oven stuff. I have heard that they have good beer but being 20 I wasn't able to taste it.

Haha right on the 20.

You up there for the semester? I'll be headed back to your home land in a month or so to give it another shot.

Yeah I am up for the semester.

You gonna go to that same place on the beach or try something else? Just watch for the snowbirds when you do go. They are swarming right now.

I'm thinking the same place. It worked well for the rents.
