Just got back from 2 weeks at Waskesiu Lake in Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan. First actual vacation with our new trailer. Sad to have to come back home.

Thanks,

You can make your own here elevation graph here http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/profile_input
Just copy the url from google maps and paste it into the form

Spent 4 days in the Uinta Mts last weekend at about 10,000 ft

I might as well add the painful part of the PNW trip as well

cheers, will try that. 9.8 mpg - due to the 4,000 ft down and then back up?

Southern Idaho headed west we hit 25mph headwind.
4.5 hours in 4th gear (of 6) at 2700rpm to maintain 60 mph. 7 mpg for that stretch.
The climb to Hell's crossing campground was with water tanks full (80gal).
I live at about 5000 feet and usually go up to camp and I noticed that it definitely takes more power to push through the air at lower elevations than it does at high elevations.
