Listen to you're favorite music, drink lots of coffee, count other GMT 900 series trucks you see on the road.

well left at 4 a.m. and pulled in at 6 p.m. i made incredible time, only stopped when the kon needed gas, for the entire trip cost me 146.78 in gas, not bad, only averaged 16 mpg, but the west va mountains dont help your gas milage. LOL. Glad to be hear, but cant wait till i can be home again, in ten days.

i did this same trip in my 06 last feb, just for comparisions. the 06 had more OOMPH going up the mountains but i spend almost 250 in gas. the 06 has cushyer seats that felt more comfortable but after a while i got a sharp pain up my left side, in the new one the seats are MUCH firmer but no pains, so i guess thats the trade off. This truck seemed to feel much more solid then the 06, i trusted it more, the 06 had 40k miles on it when i took her and I was worried i was running it to hard and somthing would break, nothing ever did but it was a worry. in the new one there were no worrys about working it to hard, it took a ton of punishment.

Glad to have that part of the trip over and will be even more glad to see my front yard in va beach again. LOL

I have heard from many people that the GMT 900 series is like night and day in regard to comfort.

The only advice I can give is to keep yourself safe, one step ahead of the riffraff. To keep from getting bored I usually try to cruise the seediest parts of town late at night, but that compromises my first advice. If you already can't wait to go home it sounds like a boring place, you'll probably get the most enjoyment out of the drive itself. This will get you more familiar with the GMT900's functions though. Have a good time!

HOME as of last night!

Love my truck, most comfortable ride yet. Smooth, plesant to drive, just hate that exhaust drone.

But Im glad to be home, the mountains were beautiful, I stopped at a Scenic view, wish I had a camera, but was an incredible VIEW!:yesnod:


Engine was very powerful and could keep a steady 75MPH below 2500 RPMS. and could keep 70MPH below 2000 RPMS.


Kept my self entertained with music, calling back people i have been putting off, and trying that 5 Hour energy drink stuff, worked, but not to the extent the tv says, and actully i had A HORRIBLE crash after it wore out, which is why i stopped in West VA.
