Jim,just to get an idea of gas prices,would an average of $1.80/gallon for premium be out of line,along our route?.
Hey Ken,I'm thinking that is a pretty good average price. It really can vary especially if you get into a smaller out of the way type of burg. It will be higher there for sure!!
We should gas up in Monroe and then again in Yakima. The next part is gonna be a bit tougher to do. I generally try to stop every two hours to get gas and stretch a bit,(& visit mom nature if needed
!!). That computes to around 100 miles,more or less. Other wise on long trips where the next gas is a question I start short shifting and watching my map and gas gage. I feel we should stop next In Goldendale. Next stop should be Stevenson. These are both county seats and SHOULD have gas for sale??!!(Maybe some computer guru can varify if gas is available at these stops,please??!!
)Vancouver,Wash. should be next and after that we should be able to make Kelso.
I get about 47MPG with mine,I suppose that will be low to average for most folks.
We should further discuss this in Yakima or Monroe.
Also if some one wants to take a stop along the way for photos,or whatever we need to figure out a method to do this without endangering someone at the tail end who feels the urge to catch the leader to tell him to stop or who drops off at the rear of the pack to take photos or something and then hauls a$$ to catch back up!!
Boy I wish I had some radios for this!!
Ken or anyone have thoughts on this??
Thanks for all the suggestions and help folks!!
