Well at exit 401 on I80 the interstate is closed. I had about 10' visibility for the last 25 miles. I learned a side road from the night clerk at Pine Bluffs Sinclair, I am going try that to get back on the interstate on Nebraska side.....

Why not sleep in the truck?


Glad you are safe. Be cautious and don't be afraid to wait it out.

Probably because the temps out here are near zero and the wind chills are far below.

I hope you brought a bail-out bag with a couple days of food and water and a sleeping bag. Getting stranded on a deserted road during a blizzard would not be good.

You are right, 14 degrees, with 40+mph wind. My windows were icing over on the inside. Thinking about taking off again......

Please educate me. For those of us living in the south and not having to deal with those temperatures, what is cetane and what is the difference between winter diesel and regular diesel?

I'm sure the diesel available right now in those states is " winter" mix, so no worries there.

I assumed that once. Was in a 3500 Dodge going from NJ to Upstate NY. Truck was frozen solid next morning. First time driving a diesel. Had to use a work space heater under the truck to warm it up.

In the winter I add a few ounces of this:

I also keep a jug of this in the truck:

In NJ some shops carry Winter blend, some don't. Usually the cut off time is April 1 in a lot of places. Probably not in Colorado yet.

If you made it to Cheyenne, you have passed the worst winds along your path. I have passed many overturned semi-trucks along that potion of Wyoming.

It is a tough drive, regardless of the weather; alas, snow does not help.

I am enjoying the story... let's see some pics (video was great).

Great looking 110!! . We did a similar trip in our 110 late fall, last year from Birmingham, AL to Alaska...First thing I did when we got here was order a set of heated pads for the seats!! Our front windshield is heated, so that might be an addition for you to consider too - they work great!

Keep the pictures coming and be safe on those roads!!
