Getting ready to go to CT and bring my son's 27' Maxum cabin cruiser back to MO.

Need to do the Truck lube, service, and brakes. New rotors, drums, and pads.

1995 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins diesel at 300,000 miles. Everything still works but the radio.

Those hills can be murder. Make sure the trailer brakes are 100%!

Watched the grands, went to see my son at the shop, came home.
Me and Aimee ate at Azul Tequila.
Got the fajitas tropicale.
Grilled shrimp, chicken, peppers, onions and pineapple, served on a lengthwise split pineapple.
Very good.

My most difficult tow is in the Northwest Hills of CT. Very hard on brakes. I run in 2nd gear and make the truck help with the stopping.

The Boat is in Hartford. Good brakes on the trailer. Fairly new tires.

At 8.000 lbs the rig is not too heavy for the one Ton Dodge Cummins. But it is honking huge.

I'll be on I-84 going east thru NW CT which isn't too bad (except for traffic) thru Danbury. Then on to I-81 at Wilkes-Barre.

Just south west of Wilkes-Barra is I-80 which gives me a long, relatively flat, run thru Pennsylvania all the way to Akron OH. I-77 south to Columbus and then a very flat & boring ride home over Indiana and Illinois on I-70

1100 miles of hoping my credit card works and nothing breaks down or brakes suddenly in front of me.

Plans are to do it over Labor Day. Dumb idea but that's when I'll have the time.

Franc, I-77 doesn't go to Columbus. I-71 does.
Unless you meant take I-77 to I-70 through Columbus. There's a ton of construction on I-70 in downtown Columbus.
