First Trip 2009

I just got home from a 2500 mile round trip journey, from New Mexico through Arkansas, down to the Gulf Coast, then back home. The truck and trailer both cooperated completely. I was pleasantly surprised, I didn't have one single issue the entire 9 days. The Rockwood "ruled". Me and the Wife both just located our biological fathers, and made the trip to meet them. All in all it was an excellent week. Just wanted to brag about how well the trip went....haha. I think my ol truck is a little tired though, 2002 Chevy 2500 HD 130,000 miles now. Thanks for providing me a place to ramble.

Sounds like you got your season off on the right foot. Gotta love it when the planets line up like that! Your truck isin't tired, is just getting warmed up at 130k.

Keep it tuned & lubed and get it to go for 500k. Might have to wash & wax it from time to time.

Our first trip out is this weekend to a local Yogi Bear park nearby. Looks like the weather will hold out and be in the 60's.
