    I'm going to go out on a limb here and speculate...but I'm guessing you are a happy camper with this buy?

    The trip back to KS has begun.

    I used the HMMWV as a daily driver while in GA.

    Traveling together with the Jeep JKU pulling the travel trailer and the HMMWV pulling the welder. Cruising 55ish.

    The HMMWV is getting about 12mpg pulling the welder.

    Made Valdosta GA to Chattanooga TN on day one, and just west of St Louis last night.

    I'll be dropping by MWMules in KCY tomorrow afternoon or evening.

    It rained essentially nonstop yesterday. The soft top would dump a deluge of water on me after every stop..... SOG!

    Made it to the farmhouse in KS last night.

    Started the trip at 96*, ended the trip freezing to death in the mid 40's.

    And J woke up this morning with what I believe is a kidney stone in her one remaining kidney. Off to the hospital we go...
