LA. 177010 miles on the odometer, 1am Saturday the 28th.
Tank full and 17.25 cubes in the car. It squats horribly, with maybe 2” of travel in the rear suspension and 2” clearance to the reflectix at the lowest point.
Death Valley, 177307, Sunrise to 7:30am.
Started experiencing power problems going up very steep inclines. This started after a 10 mile 6.5 degree decline in fourth on VO. From now on, we are running diesel on any major and extended decline, just to debug the power problem.
Stopped in Furnace Creek in the Nat’l Park, checked the suspension (which was even lower) and poured in 1 cube to top off the tank.
