As far as oil, yeah, while coming down the west side of the Rockies on I70, the oil light came on. I had to to add 2quarts, kind of scary cause I changed the fluids monday night.

Flying is cheaper and faster, but seeing that landscape was just unreal. Going through Utah where there is 250 miles without a gas station, let alone a building. I felt like I should have been driving the Mars rover around at some points.

Pictures will be up at somepoint , I am in LV for another night, then I am off to San Diego.
Cool trip. Share the pics.

You lost two quarts of oil on the trip just because you drove hard? You had problems with oil consumption or something? I drive fairly hard and don't use oil in 5-6K.
