One night on a snow covered road

Sometimes all it takes is an overnighter with your son and dog to get refreshed. Work has been so hectic I really needed to hit the reset button.

We found a snow covered road and went as far as I felt safe going. I did find that 10,000lb + vans don't "float" on thick snow too well. Lowering the tire pressure to about 30lbs got us a little further.

Camped on the side of the road & didn't see or hear another soul. Made about a 300' sled track down the center of the road.

Yeah, not much of a trip report, but it sure felt good to get out.

I know exactly how you feel. Good call to get away, even if only for a day.

Good for you, Phil. That's exactly what it's all about for me, too.

Hit the reset button. Love it!
