Ctgriffi Posted October 12, 2021 Share Posted October 12, 2021 (edited) Our big trip of the year was 8 days, mostly on the MS Gulf Coast. We broke it up into two days of driving down, two days back up, which kept each drive-day to a bearable 300 miles or so. Camped each way at Hernando Point, an excellent National Park campground with many full hook-up sites, located on Lake Arkabutla. Rented a cozy pet-friendly house near the coast while we were in BSL, like we've done in the past. Weather was not awesome, due to tons of rain and very high humidity, but not completely unexpected in those parts. 😅 The Warrior ran great and averaged just a hair over 13mpg, which is as good as I've learned to expect. Always nice to have a vehicle that can maneuver around small towns safely and easily on trips like these! On the downside, there are some roads that still just hammer the front end with a vengeance (looking at you, Arkansas!), despite my rebuilding/replacing most of those components. I'm still considering swapping out the 30 year-old torsion bars for new, but am on the fence a bit due to cost/benefit concerns (anybody done that yet with the sway-a-way® option and have a good report?).
