i remember a story about someone driving their m coupe to either alaska ...
edit....it was the arctic circle
I just think I need to tell the wife and the job about the trip and the Volvo XC70 is ready no need for mods or repairs. 600 should be plenty of gas money and 1 week driving time should be enough too. Where do I get my price?
here's what i would need:
Two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls.
also, reading the thread title i assumed DD meant designated driver.
Brand new Jeep....get in it and go
...to the bathroom?
that's a long way to go to the bathroom.
I'd drive to Bellingham and get on the ferry, then get drunk.
Maybe dress up the Volvo a little so it looked a little cooler
Daily Drive: BMW M5
Roof rack to carry lots of extra fuel
Light bar attached to said rack, so as not to hit a moose
Put on my winter tires and grab 2 spare wheels
Snowshoes and winter camping gear so I can get around and have somewhere to sleep when I run out of gas in the Yukon Territory.
+/- $500 for gas
Oil change at the start, no mods or repairs needed.
Drive for 6-7 days, so 5-6 nights in a hotel.
$50/day for food.
What's the challenge, exactly?
edit: tent and food for the stint between BC and Anchorage??
54 hour drive from the hangar according to teh googlez. ///Motorcycle needs a new front tire before I do that.
You're no fun.
You have a new jeep?
Getting drunk on a boat is pretty fun.
It's been problem free since I replaced most of the engine.
i've got a buddy with a unimog. no mods necessary, all the money would go to gas.
Seriously. Change the oil keep it washed. Not a problem at all. I do check the codes every few weeks though.
Yes sir. 2dr Wrangler, got it in March. First oil change yesterday.
Hasn't blown up yet, much to ///MMike's dismay I'm sure.
Pffttt.... They had to truck in snow for the Iditarod this year.
Edit: By train I guess, not truck
now that i think about it, you can get a tanker add on for the cargo area. do that mod, fill with gas once, drive whole way.
There's nothing more depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge.
High risk proposition...
this. If anything, get four seasons and bring chains. but I doubt you'd need chains.
Just checked. That's a 4000 mi drive for me. All I'd need is a shit-ton of podcasts on my phone and my Mazda CX-5 is ready to go. I guess I'd check/top up fluid levels...
$600 gas limit.
change of plan- buy gun, steal gas.
I think I am good to go
Eh.... I had a high school friend get killed when he hit a moose in a truck up there. Being on the road in that part of the world at all can be risky.
Edit: The 5g's in accessories could get me a pretty nice sidecar too.
Doesn't the highway go all the way up there? It's not like you have to small back roads. I guess if winter then some good winter tires would be nice and supplies in the car in case you get stuck in some bad weather. Plenty of room to sleep inside the Volvo. I would be nice to bring some hot girl for company and we could help keep each warm at night.
It does, but the M consumes gas like it's going out of style. 15 mpg street, 22 highway.
anchorage is quite far from here...
i´d do an oil change. take a few air/fuel/oil filters, cash in $20 bills and a credit card and start driving... would ferry the panama channel, and posibly most of guatemala.
i drove from new orleans to acapulco when I was 18 (similar distance), on a beat up 4 liter jeep cherokee my friends and I purchased on a whim on the Texas border for $4k..... did it on $600 over one spring break, and had change leftover for beer in south padre island, acapulco and mexico city; including some emergency repair in the sierra madre (fuel filter clogged) and a ghetto brakejob somewhere in northern mexico after frying the brakes...
I seriously considered riding a motorcycle back from Alabama to Peru, once I left college.... but my family convinced me not to.
still on my bucket list of things to do. probably will once my kid is old enough to fend for himself...
My car is a road trip monster. The weekend after I bought it we did 1700 miles over 4 days and got 28mpg (EPA is 17/26) average. That included high speed runs through the redwoods and down the Oregon coast. I can fit the wife, both dogs, both kennels and a few choice pieces of luggage.
Did you get something other than an upside down vette?
i'm pretty sure it doesn't.
$600 for gas? Not going to make it.
Otherwise plans are grab jacket, procure snacks, get in the Taco, go.
