3300 mile road trip

Recently, my gf and I went on a 2 week, 3300 mile road trip around the southwest. I reset the avg mpg counter before leaving and when I pulled into my driveway, it showed 20.3mpg.. not bad for the HEMI!! We packed lightly, camped where we could, slept in the car a few nights (was rather comfortable and roomy with rear seats folded), did some light trail rides, and drove a lot! Drove through snow, desert, and stuff in between. In the end, a very comfortable highway cruiser.. couldn't be more happy. But, next time I do this, I will plan to have a popup camper to pull.. lol. Didn't take many pics of the Jeep, but here are a few, in no particular order, from hundreds that we took.. enjoy!

Nice. My family did a similar road trip a couple years ago. Yosemite, Zion, Bryce, Arches, Mt. Rushmore. Looks like a great trip!
