So word of wisdom... trailer a 75 mph max... anything above that might be hazardous to your trailer tires health... None the wiser on that. Strangly enough it was one of the newest tire on the trailer. My "road trailering experienced" partner said that they used to shave new tires on some rigs he pulled because big thread have more centrifugical force helping in delamination. It made scense at the time!!!

As for the seed I think what helped a ton was that 100 gallon fuel tank in the back of the truck, it gave us about 1050 mile range and not getting off the highway and on constantly for fuel as oppose to a rest stop to fill in about 60 seconds must of saved us at least a couple hours. Plus as my buddy said... you don;t buy a bunch of crap to snack on during the ride!
