Make sure you have a trunk jack, spare tire, jumpers, oil, coolant, brake fluid, ATF fluid, tools, etc.

Have you considered taking one of the more southern or northern routes? The only reason I ask is because HWY 80 is insanely boring. Anyway, it should be a fun trip, and I'm really looking forward to photo updates!

Good luck bud! I need you to make it to the LIVE BROADCAST by Friday AM, so don't pick up any hitchhikers (not matter how hot she is)!


Are you going to connect with any 'Festers along the way?
