I have not driven a gas powered truck since 1983.I drove to Wyoming and over to Nebraska & SD state line to hunt. I'm sure glad I was in my Dodge Ram Diesel. I dont like checking my guns at airport either. I've had things come up missing. Not a gun but a range finder and spotting scope. Good Luck on you next hunt.Just drove 1700 miles from home to Laramie Wyoming to visit a friend for a few days. Next Friday I am off for a Colorado mule deer hunt, my first with my new 6.5 SAUM.
This was the first time driving solo out west. I've done it before with companions. Honestly, it was good windshield time. Lots of time to think thoughts through in detail, and to enjoy the scenery.
My only complaint is my fuel mileage sucks on my new RAM Rebel. When I get home, I am going back to a diesel. I have trips planned out for the next several years and I intend to drive to each of them - I hate flying and checking my guns. I've done it, but I just don't like it.
Wish me luck. Hoping to come home with a punched tag.
