My route planner says 750-ish miles one way, so about 1500 total miles. That's probably a short estimate, since MY
planner takes the shortest route and I prefer the safer, easier route, which is usually longer. Still, should be pretty close.
The last trip we made hauling a trailer we got about 13 mpg. Big motors are nice for power, not so good for economy...
So guess-timate about 115 or so gallons of gas at an average of, hopefully, $3.50 per gallon gives us about $402.
Not that we have a lot of spare change around, but that's not really that bad of an amount. If one were to buy a horse local, that would not be an unreasonable price. I'm just getting a free road trip with the deal!
