Dude imagine a cross country trip with two people in a bed with a cap, and just have bean bags for them or something. Or a couch. That honestly might not be half bad

Maybe at the end of the summer after i have money saved up. I kinda wanna do something wild like that since im young and now is kind of the time to do it ya know? Somhow save a few thousand then just blow it alll on one wild trip to cali and then come home and take a bunch of student loans and shit and start college. That would be super fun ive always wanted to drive to cali too.

Yeah, we could probably get there in two days if we switch drivers like youre sayin. And i really dont see my truck getting more than 14. Probably less from going so fast on the expressways

Pretty much the same. I think the best i ever got like jam packed pump wouldnt pump anymore full to the gas light coming on was 220-232 or so. So i mean 14-15 i guess.

my truck gets about that in town and some highway, but on long drives that i take too often i get like 250-260 per tank, but keep in mind unless you fixed your speedo for bigger tires your odometer is off, the last trip i took to chico (150 miles exactly) my odometer said i went 135, so im off 15 miles for every 150.
