Hoosier Daddy?

Roughly 12 hours (and 31mpg) later I was sitting on South40 Pass

Trivia: Hoosier Pass was named after Hoosier Gulch mining camp. 
No word on what Hoosier Gulch was named after.

Awesome - thanks for bringing the cooler weather with you!

The folks often run 15.25 hours (4 well choreographed fuel stops) from about 170 mi NNW of there - but in a 3/4 ton x-cab V-10 4x4, uh, your mpg digits get reversed.

Why do you think I took the V6 Mercedes instead of the 6.0 Powerstroke F350 4x4 crewcab? I would have been thrilled to get 13mpg at that pace. It drops into single digits over 75mph. I can just imagine what adding high alt and grade into the equation would do.
