I will say one thing I learned from this long trip, I really like having the big truck comfortable ride, plenty of power, great braking, large fuel tanks so can price shop for fuel, made it from Colorado Springs to Altoona Iowa before getting fuel. This is not for everyone mind you but as everything out there has pros and cons, just glad I took my time and learned all I could, found another forum for great help and info and did not RUSH into a truck, there are deals out there but knowledge first is very important.

Wrapping up our stay in Amana Iowa and it was one of the quietest stops so far but did get caught up on some little things around the camper. A short ride tomorrow but will get to stop at the Iowa 80 truck stop, supposedly the largest one so driving a big truck it's a must stop to see, a buddy told the wife not to let go downstairs as that is where all the truck BLING is, more chrome equals more money
Oh yea got the word the new River Stone has arrived at the dealer!!!!
