We got fuel in Nephi at the Flying J. It was $3.89 with the Flying J/Good Sam credit card. Otherwise $3.95 cash price.
We arrived in Salt Lake City. This city is spread out with all sorts of traffic.
O.K. this is for you people who like fuel mileage numbers. Driving the red line roads and mountains in AZ & UT my last fill up we got 7.3 MPG. I have instruments that tell me my at the moment fuel mileage, fuel mileage for the day and fuel mileage since last fill up. Yepper……. There numbers are pretty close using the old method of figuring with pen and paper. I got fuel after getting on I-15. My fuel mileage for the day ended up being 10.3 and fuel mileage since last fill up was 11.1 mpg. Now that's what I'm talking about. I think my fuel mileage on this Alaska trip will be around 8 mpg due to red line roads all the way. I figure if I want to, I can go 700 miles on a tank (100 gal) without worry. This last fill up I took on 83 gallons to get fuel a little cheaper. You might say, “Wow why?” and “I say why not?” The money we saved will pay for a good chunk of our Cracker Barrel breakfast. That’s why.
We will be here for 11 nights. Hill AFB Campground is a concrete pad, side by side full hook up 50 AMP, pull thru sites for $20 a night. This is a secured base meaning if you don’t have a military ID card the armed guards won’t let you come on base.
These fly boys don’t care what the weather is like, they’re flying in it. As you can see it’s cloudy. Those clouds opened up about 7 PM and it rained all night. It’s suppose to rain at least tomorrow morning and temps staying in the 50’s.
By the time Ed & Sandy Kruty get here next Friday, the temps are suppose to be in the 70’s. We already put are summer shorts away.
