Naw, you'll be fine. I am over 4,500ft elevation. High today at my house is 77. Low is 61.

Well in that case, get the beers ready I'm on my way!

Let's see...2500 miles, factoring in elevation changes, headwinds, a few minor breakdowns, and the maximum speed of a 5000 pound diesel van with offroad tires....Yeah, i'll see ya in about 14 months!

1st shake-down camping trip in the Delica this past weekend with the wife and our 2 dogs. All things considered it went really well. Learned a bunch. Need to buy some additional/different gear (of course!). Biggest issue was the temp inside the van when we wanted to go to bed. Got up to 90 during the day. By 11:00 PM it was still above 80. AC in the van is busted so that's on the list to get fixed but even if it were operational, I don't want to be the guy at the campground idling his diesel engine to power his AC. Considering a solar array to charge up the deep cycle 12VDC batteries that start the van so that we can also use them to power some fans with the van is off. Just some airflow would help a ton. Or, maybe some sort of super small window mount AC unit that we can run off 110 and we limit our August camping to sites that have electrical hook-ups.

First serious winter trip in the Delica! Was a little nervous about climbing the mountain passes and sub 20 degree morning starts but the little dude did great!

We sprung a random coolant leak the morning we departed on the trip and almost chickened out and borrowed a friend's Jeep. Thankfully it was just a loose hoseclamp. Got that patched up and fixed a faulty electrical switch on the rear heater blower motor. The dogs were happy to have heat in the back of the van.

Very happy I installed water temp, boost, and EGT gauges so I could keep an eye on things as we climbed the pass (slowly).

Rented this total dump of a house on Air BnB with some friends for a long weekend of skiing, hot tubbing, and fun.
