Howdy all......

Hey I am in the final countdown for what will be my first big trip, leaving on Monday at 5:00 a.m. Went to see my mechanic today he was going over all of my systems for me today and doing a parked regen just to make sure the truck was ready. 

So if you read this please think some good thoughts for us on our trip.

Thanks,

Cory O

Cory, we all have this feeling when we are new to the trucks! Just start the journey.

Yup! Agree!  You will be listening to everything.  Then after a couple of hours, it will fade to normal background.

This is a very true statement; I feel this way every year just before we start traveling.

I'm the exact opposite.... if I don't hear the rattles and squeaks I know to stop and see what fell off....

That one made me laugh!

I remember the day I heard new noises coming from my vehicle. Turned out it was because I'd turned the radio off.

Good point.  When learning a new vehicle, don't turn on the radio.  Well, at least not very loud.  Get comfortable with the subtleties of the sounds, and especially the vibrations.  Pay attention to where you interface with the vehicle, especially your feet.  You'll be amazed at what those floor boards can divulge.

Cory   Have a great trip and remember if you get out here to the east coast of Va we can put you the 5er and the truck up for your visit with power and drainage. And a tour the the worlds largest naval Base. Just relax and enjoy the scenery. Have a great summer!!  Pat

The joy of owning an old truck!  With that being said, I've put about 13k miles on mine since buying it a year ago, and the sucker does what it's supposed to do every day without complaint.
