The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

Well it finally happened. After close to a year looking for the perfect SMB, I happened to check the pre-owned section of their website for the Texas location and found a 2003 RB50 7.3 PSD with all the wanted equipment and only 66,000 miles!!! After a deposit and the longest week in history at a meeting, I headed out to Austin for pick up. I am from Texas (if name didn't give it away) and this was an Austin built truck.

The team at SMB Texas were great. Paul, Kevin and Barbra made the process very simple. I arrived at 8am Monday morning. Paul showed me back to the truck and Kevin walked me though everything. After the paperwork was done, I was on my way back to Phoenix.



Needed a little Bling

Re: The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

The trip took me though the most beautiful part of Texas. My Goal was to make it close to El Paso the first day, but I got sidetracked.

The Texas White House Plane:



LBJ Ranch:



I had been by this place many times, but it was worth the stop. They had a living museum of an old farm that was pretty cool. The tour of the Texas White House (LBJ's House) was worth the price. From Here I headed westward.

Re: The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

I was wanting to explore the truck so I decided I would stop at South Llano River State Park. I had heard it was nice and it had water and power. This would give me the chance to check everything out. Had to make one stop on the way:



The Campsite:



First Meal in SMB:



It was a great place to stop, but I wish I would have headed a little farther down the line. It made for a long second day. I drove from Junction to Phoenix in one sitting. I had to stop and made a few calls in El Paso, so that meant my first Flying J shave and shine.

The Yeti ran great. I either set the cruise on 65 or 70 the entire way. I am glad to be home and look forward to all the adventures ahead.
