We left South Carolina last Sunday, May 3 at 3:30 pm and made it to Redding, CA last Thursday around lunch time. If you were going straight to the Rubicon we could of made it there a day earlier, since we passed right through Reno Wednesday night. I towed with my F-250, it did pretty good. I had a return fuel line that started leaking in Nebraska but I took some hose from the Bronco and got it fixed in a few minutes and we kept going. I think we're gonna try a different route going back, through texas and I'll be able to compare them. The northern way puts you at about 6000-8000 ft elevation from Nebraska all the way to the edge of California, so it was a little harder to tow up the hills without the egt's climbing too high.

    That looks like a load of fun. Do you know the camera specs/shooting arrangement by chance?

    Sure, he used a Nikon F4, with a 50mm prime lense, the film is Fujica Superia 200 speed film.
