In October 2012, after traveling 6,500 miles and using 905 gallons of premium gas, we made it home with our 1938 REO truck, 1950 Westcraft Pullman trailer and 1917 King canoe without breaking down in either direction. Chuck often drives the modified REO around town but the thought of driving it and the trailer cross country and back was a little intimidating at first. We packed spare parts and built in extra-time traveling in both directions in case we needed to make repairs (hurrah, we had no real problems with the truck or trailer). The only time we had to hold our breath was during a heavy dust storm near the border of Texas and New Mexico on the way back home.
