I get around to a YouTube video once a year and I finally finished mine for this year. It's the best photos from my 5 month Ramblin' 2019 trip. My 14th year of ramblin'. See it here . Link to my YouTube channel in signature.

Hopefully there will be Ramblin' 2020 for another video next year (TBD).

Fight off stir-crazy and stay healthy. [emoticon]

The landscape out west here is amazing. I'm shocked you only got 10.8mpg though? Last I measured mine with camper was 9.8 and that was climbing from 6,000' to 10,000'. I couldn't believe it was that good. You should look into a tune for your rig. My neighbor has the same truck and I tuned it, really woke it up and he says he doesn't kick it in the ass near as hard with his truck camper and a trailer full of quads. Bone stock otherwise.

Many thanks for the watches and comments here! Yes, it does make one antsy to watch nice scenery and be stuck at home. [emoticon]

Re MPG: I bought my truck new in late 2005 for my used camper. Looking back at my stats, almost all my years have been 11.0 to 11.4 mpg. Last 3 have been just under 11.0. Now have 196K miles, so maybe it's getting tired (like me). With camper on and loaded with long term stuff, I'm right at GVWR.

Safe travels (when you can travel).

Pshh, you're just broken in. Many miles left in that rig.
