Trip Math…

I like math. Math is fun. Let’s take a look at the math involved in our cross country trip so far…

  • According to the trip computer, since leaving Las Vegas on Wednesday, August 28th we have traveled a distance of 1,881 miles over 36 hours and 14 minutes. This gives us an average speed of 51.9 miles per hour. During this time the truck was started 54 times. (This includes those by the parking valet to move the vehicle so that number is a little inflated.)
  • Our fuel economy in terms of miles per gallon have ranged from 24.7 mpg on the high side to 2.8 mpg on the low side (that 2.8 was leveling the trailer, and was less than .01 miles). Our average for the trip has been 13.4 miles per gallon.
  • Tire pressure has been stable between 38 and 42 psi
  • We have spent five nights at different campgrounds.

We are 30% through our 6,400 miles journey. 4,520 adventure filled miles to go…
