First thought was, man that's a lot of stuff to take skiing, but then read your previous post. Surprisingly, the bikes loaded on the back probably hurt your mileage worse than those on the top. At least that's been my experience. Get that rear weight and the nose comes up enough to effect airflow.
Oh poor little rig, that could have reached great milestones of destinations.This was my 2014 JSW TDI. It was a 6 speed manual, slick top on 18" Mallory wheels from a mk6 GLI. this car took me everywhere. From Washington, to Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Ohio, Arkansas, to Missouri, to Chicago, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and over into Montana where it ended its life as my road trip/camping rig when I got smashed into by a drunk driver.
We drove nearly 6,000 miles in just under 3 weeks averaging 34mpg at roughly 80mph with 18's, a huge skybox, 4 people in the car and a ton of cargo!
Last week Friday from Laredo, Tx to Monday, Detroit, Mi.
Absolutely no problems finding vacancies in motels. Though the ones that used to offer free continental breakfasts stopped that, coffee only except one in Ohio where the had prepackaged pastries and coffee. Diesel from a low of $ 1.99 to a high of $ 2.79 though the highest I paid was $ 2.55 gal. I found traffic was much lighter than in past years. Lots of 18 wheelers on the road.
Eating from drive thru windows and fine dining in the car, a royal PIA!
Also what gives with "No toilet paper" in stores? Are people eating that now???
I've done the drive from Ft. Knox KY to Providence, RI twice in the past 6 months.
I can do a leg in one stop (fuel and bathroom) about halfway across Penn. I've generally averaged about 52mpg out and 49mpg back.
about 14-15 hours each way
Were you able to use the restrooms in truck stops, fast food restaurants, etc.
I think I'll put a packet of paper napkins in the car and put one in my pocket to use on the door handles when exiting.And most of the rest stops don't ahve paper towels anymore. Just air dryers.
And what was your mileage going to and coming back from AZ?
But remember to stay 6 feet (1.83 meters) apart!In a one on one with my boss this morning and we discussed needing to get face to face with a customer in Florida. May have a road trip in my near future from Charlotte to Orlando.
That would mean taking his minivan. No thanks, I'll meet him at the customer's.But remember to stay 6 feet (1.83 meters) apart!
Yup, when I have that same discussion I end up on a big metal bird. Happens every weekIn a one on one with my boss this morning and we discussed needing to get face to face with a customer in Florida. May have a road trip in my near future from Charlotte to Orlando.
