damn wind

En route across us on I90. Havnt done for a while. Forgot about those incessant plains winds, most likely in your teeth. They are debillitating and energy sucking. Normally lots of power to tow rockwood 2304s with chevy trail blazer I6 300 horse, over Stevens pass adequately, but headwinds revealed limitations of TB . Was barely able to hold at 50 mph, and u could almost see fuel gauge moving down. Can only pray for tailwind out of coeur d'lene en route to Butte.
