Pay for the diesel and I'll give you a hand.
Thanks for the offer. This run is just for fun, I have a trailer and truck. I will take a Dry Suit Two Marine Radios. A cell phone and a distress beacon.

I plan on taking my time and if get's rough I pull in and call for the trailer.

1) fill tank before leaving

3) pull in some where and fill tank again
4) repeat steps 2 and 3 until trip is completed.

Best advice yet


You forgot to add buy lot's of beer and food.

I ran in a Top Gun today that had 675 Chiefs. The flow meters were saying 50 each at 4000rpm.

I think that resembles a garden hose...



Do the math with todays gas prices............

Merc used to use hp/12 = gals/hr. Need to know what hp you are developing at a particular rpm to use this. If you run it against your dyno numbers under load I think it looks fairly close.

There was a time when I had more sense than cents Hell i've had as many diesel boats as gas. In 1978 I had a 25' CC with a 636ci turbocharged Caterpillar.......wait a minute, that was sick to........maybe things haven't changed

For the love of the sport!


Not really just sounded like fun and I told my buddy's over a few beers that I was going to do it. Now if I don't I will get a lot of SH*t.


It's not at speed run, just going to take a few days off and clear my head recharge the battery's. If it gets too cold or too rough I will pull out.

Work has been tough as you know over the last 18 Mo and I don't have enough time to take a real vacation.

I am sure most or all of the ice will be gone by the 3rd week in April.
