I did pick up my fenders before i left, even tho im on vacation im still working on my project. When i got to my buddys house in colorado the neighbors had a bus aswell. Are they on the fourm.? Possibly.

Bus next door. I never in my life seen so many buses on on road before, when i was traveling the back way from Grand canyon to the four corners & up to colorado.

The bus overall drove well all the way too. I was getting around 350+- 10. Per half tank i didnt let it go beyond that. Dealing with high winds & hills the whole way.
Egt stayed around 9-10 hundred degrees but soon as hit the rockys booom shot straight to 13 & even hittin 14 a few points super fast, altitude plays a major role right.? Backed off real quick.
5 miles into utah baam rocks chip my windshield. & colorado greeted me with lightning show.
Does not look like colorado is going to let me fly at all either kinds bummed really wanted to. But All in all im happy.

I Was able to explore colorado with some really good friends & family, i will miss the hiking trails but i will not miss the weather.
I also just could not leave without donating some blood, By hitting a tree & bending my buddys rim several miles in, luckily i was able to ride the rest of the way down & not walk.

Getting to Zion national park i get slaped with the most stupid idiotic fee i have ever seen, the tunnel fee plus on top of entrance fee, All together $45 i dont mind paying cause i support the national parks but c'mon really a tunnel fee? All the cars went one at a time regardless. So dumb. Luckily the guy was nice & only charged me $15 total to get in so im happy & got to do the trail i been dying to do for awhile. Went straight for the most deadliest trail in the park. Didnt take many photos cause this trip was me time.
