We returned home two weeks ago after our 10,000 mile trip from Virginia to the west coast and back. We were gone for six months.
We were able to attend two gatherings including the Oregon NOG and the Quartzsite Dome Rock event where we met quite a few F.R.V people.
We kept detailed mileage data on the laptop and the results appear below,
TV = 2002 mazda three liter v-6 five speed tranny.
TV was fully packed with first up, spare propane
tank, extra stove, BBQ, tools, two gas scooters and miscelany.
RV = 1983 Uhaul
packed with the essentials and full 10 gal water tank.
Mileage for the entire trip averaged 17.36 gal
Best mileage = 19.5 on I5
Worst mileage = 15.5 through wyoming with huge headwind.
Average price of gasoline was $3.06 ( would be more now )
Total miles = 10,985.85
Number of tire problems = 0
Number of new windshields = 1
Repairs = One clutch & slave cylinder. ( $800 ) YIKES!
Number of good times and happy memories = At least a zillion!
I will post a list of my favorate sites later.
