Headed out on my "mythical" trip out west, in a car.
Took off from Laurens, SC, two days ago in a 2003 Mercury Sable, towing a overloaded Time Out motorcycle camper. Getting 22 mpg, so far, not as good as I hoped. Stopped the first day after 270 miles because I checked the wheels on the Time Out trailer and the passenger side was so hot it burned my finger when I reached under and touched the brake drum. I loosened up the brake pads a little and it's was cool for 550 miles yesterday.
Wife has severe stomach cramps, and there was a hellacious thunder shower moving in when we stopped last night so we are in a motel again, instead of camping, which is OK, the camper is to be mainly used when we stay at a place for several days at a time, at 71 I don't feel like "setting up camp" at the end of a long day of driving.
My neck is also killing me, just like it does on the FJR. WTH? Might be going home with my tail tucked between my legs, again. LOL
