Default Road Trip!!

Next Friday I get to leave on an approximately 4,700 mile 13 state road trip! States I will pass through are, in trip order:
Washington
Oregon
Nevada
Utah
Colorado
Nebraska
South Dakota
Iowa
Wisconsin
Minnesota
North Dakota
Montana
Idaho

Just finished:
Put on new Michelin Pilot Road 2's (got 20k miles on the last set)
Coolant change
Checked valves
New Plugs
Oil / filter change (will also change in Wisconsin)
Chain and sprockets were done a few thousand miles ago
Everything else is up to date.

Planning 6 days out (staying a few days in Milwaukee) and 5 back.

Should be fun.

I think I've got everything ready to roll.

Love my 06 F4i (bought in Feb of '12 with 4'659 miles, now 48k)

That is great! My longest day was only 500 miles, but it was in the 30s. Did two of them back to back and the second day it was snowing.
