Just an update to you guys. We got moved to Southern Nevada on Friday. We are headed to Northern Nevada this weekend for the wife's interviews. So we hope to know more by next week, as to if we are moving North. I'll keep you guys posted. We are without a computer at home so we use one at the college.
Thanks everybody, we are enjoying the nice weather. I'm motorcycle riding everyday. Rode to the Death Valley area on Monday.
Oh, The old 460 pulled our 10,000# trailer real good this trip. I added some octane booster to the gas this trip, it seemed to make a difference in one no pinging pulling out of Laughlin, FIRST time ever for that. Pulling Spring Mountain. I put it in second and it pulled over it at real low RPM. I could of pulled the real steep part of it in first but chose to use second. It pulled real strong. Gas mileage was 5.96 MPG. That is about right. It will improve if we head North. It is tuned for 5000+ ft of elevation.
We are taking the 28 MPG Lumina to Northern Nevada tomorrow. Would like to take the Blazer but it only gets 19 MPG. That Blazer pulled that cargo trailer here about 3500# & got 15.5 MPG. That it better than the wife's Trailblazer use to get. It was good for 13-14 MPG at best.
Keep you posted.
