Did you do that all in one pull or did you split it up. That would be one long haul to do in one pull, not sure I would be up to that. Welcome home, glad you had a safe trip.

We were originally going to stop somewhere between Savannah & Charleston and decided to just get it over with and miss the snow/ice/etc. We can leave the camper loaded until warmer weather and I can get started on the poles.

Get-home-itis at it's best. Glad ya' made it ok Coot. Bet you were wiped out. Long drives like that give me tunnel vision and exhaustion.

Welcome home OC! Man that was one LONG pull you just did...not sure I would want to do that (but we will probably do something similar when we return from Goshen this year)

These details are suspect since we all KNOW you can't do what you did with only a 1/2 ton truck!

I know it, but don't tell anyone. We all know you can't pull anything but an empty 4'x 6' lawn trailer with a 1/2T.
