Might throw Jonesy and Charles in there and make it a Road Trip sequel.

Just make sure it's subtitled.

The people across the table ( closing room ) are wondering if I have Turrets.. I am laughing so hard
I speak just enough Gustavo to interpret that to be Tourette's syndrome

You can do Tennessee In 2 days if nothing breaks. It's just gravel roads. Not much of an adventure.

If you can suggest a cost-sharing method to get multiple (four or more) trucks delivered from NOVA to Moab, Utah or Colorado Springs - then delivered back, that would be helpful.

Gas to drive that distance would be notionally $650 / vehicle, not including drive time of 30 hours and incidental costs. There would be a benefit of distributed liability for vehicles as well as saving on transport costs for the drivers themselves (say, $400 per driver for a round trip flight.)

Remember Wolf did the numbers for this/that last year or the year before...cost wise I didn't think it made sense, but I'm not sure.

I'm sure you could put it out there to a u-ship bid.. A truck with a gooseneck trailer could carry 4 trucks and do a return trip also after a week or so..but I think it would be relatively expensive..
