Pix from the trip

Left Tucson last Tuesday in the new 60, and got back into New York City this Tuesday.

Mounted a camera to the dash and took a snapshot every couple of miles or so.

Crashed @
Eloy, AZ
Page, AZ
Monticello, UT
Denver, CO
Kearney, NE
Iowa City, IA
Sturgis, MI

After Sturgis, I just hammered it for 13.5 hours to get home. That was a long day and boy did that beer taste good when I got home.

Sights:
Sedona
Grand Canyon
Lake Powell
Monument Valley
Navajo National Monument
Mexican Hat
Natural Bridges
Moab
A cool car show in Keensburg, CO called the Sunflower Nationals

All in all a great trip and the truck ran flawlessly. Got about 11.5 mpg.

Only thing is I wish my wife had the time off to come along.

It sucks going from all this beatiful country back to this hell-hole I call home, well for now anyway...

Macneil,

Last summer, my two older brothers and i all drove a new 60 home from colorado to VA. It was without a doubt one of the coolest, and funnest trips i've ever had. Coming across the open plains is pretty cool.

Nope this was the first time. I bought the truck in AZ and drove it home.
