We left Seven Feathers Casino at 8:06 this morning. We normally like to leave earlier, but I wanted daylight to drive through the mountains. The weather started out much better than we expected. The forecast was for rain the entire trip, but we stayed dry all the way to Weed California. Our new 2015 GMC Diesel outperformed all expectations. The exhaust brake worked great, we traveled almost the whole route in cruise control. The only time I touched the brakes was to slow for semi trucks that blocked all the lanes. Our new diesel just blew right by them!
