Well, back from the trip to Tally and now in Pleasanton, Texas. Went a total of 2,215 miles with an overall average of 8.6 mpg. That's an increase from 8.2 from my last trip. I still believe my increase in mileage is due to my new 16" Michelin LT's and freshly packed bearings. This leg back from Tally was almost all head winds, especially the last day which had up to 50 mph. I tried to stay behind semi's to "break trail" and still averaged 65 mph most of the way. Had a "toad strangler" of a rain storm in Biloxi. Next trip is from Pleasanton, TX to Garden Valley, Idaho later this month.

And not come back till October, given how unpleasant South Texas can be in summer

Yes, we had "high profile" warnings for highway travel the past few days. Steady 35-mph winds with gusts past 50. Park-the-5'er week.
