I-80 trio from Ca to NH

I-80 trio from Ca to NH

Postby markmitch [OP] » June 10th 2021, 2:02am

So we left Stockton Ca at 1pm on Tuesday the 8th got as far as Elko NV stopped at 10:30 pm.
Today (Wednesday) we got on the road at 8:30 and stopped early because we only got 5 hours sleep due to our dogs. We stopped in Green Wyoming. So far just shy of 900 miles. Tomorrow should be our long day since we will leave here early and end around 7 pm. Mark

Safe Travels!

Just completed a 22 hour trip with No layover down the Coast, from Boston to Daytona in Surfari.

The nicest of the Astro/Safari Vans that I've owned, but still one of the worst vehicles for road noise. With that said, a great consistent workhorse.

Long day for me today I got up at 6 am Nebraska time lol, Wife got up a bit after so we got on the road at 9:30 am and ended the day in Joliet Illinois at approximately 6:30 pm. So far we have driven 2116 miles. We have about 1000 miles to go. Hopefully tomorrow we can get in 600 miles. Thanks for reading Mark
