YKYAEM when you're driving through the snow, marveling at just how intense and exciting it can be to drive the PSL... and it occurs to you that you get that level of intensity and excitement every day, just without the danger.

YKYAEM if...
... You hear someone say "If he can afford an expensive gas guzzler, then he can afford gas", and you correct it to "If he can afford an expensive gas guzzler, then he can afford a cheaper econobox!"

YKYAEM when... your boss shows you a picture that he just took on his phone of some "of the most ridiculous redneck sh*t" he has ever seen on a car. I replied, "yeah those are my wheel covers zip-tied to my car" lol

(not my picture I had a SD card fail on this trip, sad because I had a nice time lapse video )


YKYAEM You drive this to Texas and back for work and get out 17.4 MPG !!
(LOTS of neutral coasting & P&G EOC)
2015 GMC 5.8V8 6 speed auto

2815.8 miles 161.83 gallons $351.17!

My boss did the same route in his 2014 Chevy van (same drivetrain) with a 12" trailer and a loose nut behind the wheel and got 11MPG.
Think we have the same .cd? we both have 6 tires and around the same weight.

I beat him to one or two checkpoints / meet ups for lunch or the hotel for the night. most of the time I was within 10 miles / 15 minutes behind him.

My initial thoughts were:



A. FIRST "...that swarm of bees ahead are REALLY gonna STING..."

[ a sudden loss of control occurs here ]

B. THEN "...the ROAD RASH is really gonna leave a MARK..."
