        Good question, hopefully sometime Friday - I think Shawn is planning on doing the whole trip on Saturday - over 900 miles....
        There's always something new to learn.

              This weekend, My brothers need cheap labor! Usually straight through, Phx-Tulsa is 20-22 hours, at 60-65 easing the 12 Valve Cummins across there for optimum fuel mileage. I'll fall over in the seat at some rest area in NM or Texas for a 2 hour nap...2nd generation CDL driver, don't know any other way!

                  7 days from today - Leaving for DW Wed the 5th, this gives me one or two days to address any issues trying to prevent me from making DW12. Route includes I10 W to Mesa AZ then the scenic route to Albuquerque (60 to Superior, Show Low, Pie Town then 603 N to 117 N to I40 ABQ). I40 W with a stop in Clinton, OK to deliver some fresh CA fruit to the good folks at Zanes auto repair who help me out in ’09 when the truck let me down on the way to Drag Week, then Ok City airport to pick up my son Lane and on to - See you in Tulsa.
