If you can't get over 2K miles out of tires, you're doing it wrong. It seems stupid to use tires that blow through rubber like that. The fuel costs must have been ridiculous too.

Did you drive backroads all the way up there? Droning away in a truck on slab is boring. Why didn't you drive up in a sporty car on twisty backroads, pulling a trailer, and get better mileage? Droning slab in a truck is no adventure. It seems stupid too, and it's not exactly how I would do it, so you must be doing it wrong.
