Cross country in JK, seattle to nashville
Started my big journey today. Got off to a late start, but got into SE Oregon. Avg 19mpg, not bad!! Next is through Idaho, part of Utah, and Wyoming for tomorrow.

It's loaded to the top with a bunch of stuff. At 70 on flat ground 20.3, then the wind and hills hit.

It's awesome. Puts a whole new spin on road trips!.

Whats REALLY neat is you can turn Left or Right and get off the highway and explore along your way...See some country.
Have fun on your trip, we had to cancel our trip to Nashville this year. "BH"

Sounds like a beautiful journey.
Long-Live the American road trip!

Good luck and have fun! I'm subscribing in case you put up any updates because I have a similar length trip coming up. Any pointers or insights? I'll be travelling from the East coast of Canada to the Grand Canyon, so any info you have on long distance Jeep trips would be appreciated!

Thanks all!! Going well so far. 19.6mpg and that's after crossing the great divide. Running smooth at 73-75mph. Wind hampers it a lot and in Wyoming was getting blown all over the road. All and all I have made several of these trips and the Jk is pretty comfortable!

Onward to Missouri.

Your view is about to change drastically, lol.

I've made that drive before, fun stuff.

Pictures, my man, pictures! Let's see that countryside for us poor folks who live in the bayou and only see swamps and marshlands :(
