Where Are We Today
|Leaving "The Ridge"|
At the end of each winter, I like to report our distance traveled and fuel mileage from the time we leave "The Ridge" until the time we return to "The Ridge". It should also be stated that it is not always a direct drive to and from the border crossing, as we may stop for one or more days between "The Ridge " and the border.
The following numbers are taken from the truck's instrument panel computer.
Mileage: 9654.5 mi./15537.4 km.
Fuel/: 10.4 mpg avg./22.6 l/100 km.
Amount Used: 927.9 U.S. gal./ 772.64 Imp. gal./ 3512.5 l.
It should also be noted that these averages are for both towing and normal driving. This being our third winter away, thinking back, these numbers have been close each year.
Changing the subject, I was asked awhile back, by Dave from ourawesomeviewfromhere.blogspot.com, about my step ladder hung underneath the trailer and about hanging 50 lbs on the ladder at the back.

To answer Dave, you should have no problem hanging your blue boy on the ladder, it is rated for somewhere in the 200 lb. vicinity to allow you to climb up it.
To see the step ladder hanger install, you can go to this link here, clembillpat.blogspot.com/2018/06/
I got the idea from someone we met in a park in Huachuca City AZ. He had his in this location on a Mobilesuite.
Thanks for taking time to stop by and hope you are having a Happy Easter where ever you are. Until the next time, take care and stay safe. Comment are always welcome.
