New Business

Hey Shawn,
Please make room for me on the agenda. I have a piece of new business I would like to bring up if I may.

Thanks, Ben.

Well...a couple of you witnessed the fact I finally made the last meeting...albeit after it was over :rolleyes:. Not going to be able to make this one. Maybe Apple has an iPhone app I can put to use: "Virtual Meeting Attender" :D

Count me out. In Winnemucca now.

We were talkin' smack about you at the meeting.
To bad you couldn't be there to defend yourself.:flipoff2:



Really though, the subject of gas mileage came up. When you towed your 80 to Moab did you get better, worse, or about the same mileage as you would have driving it?
I seem to recall you saying it was about the same.

No worries, I can take it.:flipoff2::flipoff2:

Yeah that is the pathetic thing. My 80 averages about 11-12@80mph, 13-14@70mph. My Truck, 10' cabover, trailer with 80 strapped on averaged 11-12mpg @ 60-70mph (grossing about 18k+lbs). Pretty sad...:eek:

80 grossing about 6500+lbs@65 mph will do 14-15mpg
@55 mph (very hard to do), it will pull 16 (all of the above numbers are with the roofrack on and gear mounted on the rack).

My truck averages 12-14 with just the cabover @70 mph. At 55 mph and less I have seen as much as 17mpg with the cabover mounted.

Makes me realize how much I wish I could put a diesel in my 80.
