Lightbulb 2200 Mile Road Trip Log

Before starting this trek tomorrow, I will be doing the routine check up of tire pressure, fluid levels and emergency supplies.

I run 38/37PSI; just back from 1750 miles, Houston to Saint Louis and back for a week. Pulled down 35-36MPG on the freeway and 30MPG around town. Have fun and be safe.

Looking forward to numbers like that on my California to Washington road trip!

Have you plotted your route yet?

If you're taking I-15 through Vegas continuing on up through St George (SW corner of Utah) take a break and I'll treat you to a meal. I'd guess you're gong to cross the country on I-70, 80?

I took a road trip from NJ > Kansas City > Chicago > NJ this past winter and the Mazda6 is a champ! I made sure I had every emergency supply I could need in the trunk and never needed any of it.

Do you have an air pump in the trunk?

That’s a really nice offer! Unfortunately my route is going to be majority by I-5.

No air pump, but maybe I should invest in one?

I strongly suggest you get one. Imagine you're​ in the middle of nowhere, and you found out that you have a leaking tire. Vulcanizing shop is miles and miles away.

After some time, the tire is so deflated. But you have your donut tire, that should save you.

Can you imagine the hassle?
