Day 8 Thursday June 29th

Sadly this is where our adventure ends. We had a, fortunately, very uneventful drive home. Rich's Ex performed flawlessly, and the V10 tows better than you'd think. Put a trans cooler and a gauge in this thing and I'd rock it. Most importantly the AC works real good. She's thirsty though so that 38 gallon tank doesn't last long, especially with a lot of grades between Hurricane and San Jose.

Couldn't help myself

We rolled in around 10PM after driving all day, moved a few things into the driveway and went to bed, thoroughly exhausted.

The next day I cleaned up and started putting away camping gear and tools. I went by the local truck wash and had them blast 1300 miles of grime off the truck, and then I got to trying to figure out how to return a normal life. Fortunately I had a few days off after the trip to acclimate to reality.

I will say after the full week, I was a little ready to go home. But then after a day home, I was ready for an early morning drivers meeting and whatever the crew had planned for us that day.

What an amazing trip. Thanks to my friends that helped with some last minute wrenching getting things ready. Thanks to my co-pilot Nolan for putting up with me for a week and change. Thanks to Rich for delivering the Ex to replace my blown up diesel, driving 4 hours unexpectedly on a random Monday night. Thanks to the magazine crew for the invite, the cronies, the sponsors and the whole UA gang for the support. For me, it truly was the ultimate adventure!

Thanks guys, its been fun reliving. Its also no secret I like words, and using them in excess in what can broadly be conveyed as "story telling".
