I'm still taking my planned summer trip, which will be a little over 4000 miles pulling the trailer, plus whatever unhitched driving I do. I'm going to try to limit the trip to 6000 miles or less.
From Kansas, I'm going to Moab, UT, then up to Seattle. Averaging 10mpg minimum, I should be able to make the trip using at the most 600 gallons of diesel. Guessing $4.50 a gallon for diesel along the way, fuel will cost around $2700.
Sounds like a lot, but that cost will be spread out over 4 months, so it won't be that bad, especially if I find enough places to boondock for free in my travels. And it'll be worth it to be able to spend some time with my two sons up in Washington.
