Yea I’m enjoying it I’ve had my far share of ups and downs but more ups, I learned how to drive better, I got thrown in the fire 🔥 lol I didn’t like it at first but I learned a lot from driving up and down those steep hills and congested traffic, I prefer to drive at nighttime also had a preventable definitely learned a lot from that.

Im glad you seem to be enjoying your time so far! I bet that was a real shock your system hahaha. It really makes fueling or pre/post trip a real PITA when it's cold. It will get MUCH colder than that. I think last year in Iowa the coldest windchill we had was -40. Wyoming and Montana get much colder than that due to nothing blocking the wind. You'll know it's cold when you can throw a pot of boiling hot water in the air and it comes down as ice which does happen (YouTube it)

I’m a Carolina boy lol we hardly ever see temps like that I like the cold but not NE cold 😆

Those are all still shorts weather for this Iowa boy. I like seeing how the boys down in southern Texas dress when it is below 55 degrees, you would think they were getting ready to go snowmobiling.
