Default First road trip up north to the woods for my 2011 Sport

So I took my truck up to my hunt cabin for the first time today... usually don't go in the winter but had to pay the property taxes today. We decided to go check on the cabin while we were up there. Usually we don't make it 2 feet up the driveway in the winter with all the snow. Well, I'm proud to say I was able to drive my truck right up to the house through a foot and a half of snow. Our front yard is pretty much our driveway so imagine driving through your front yard with all that snow and no tire tracks to stay on. It was tough but it went right through it in 4wd, I was very impressed! The drive up and back on the highway was awesome, the truck is so quiet, smooth, and the hemi is very responsive I averaged 12mpg going up (but like I said the hemi is very responsive so I had a little fun with it) and going home i averaged 18.9 mpg (doing 71mph on cruise). The back seat folding up and the bottom part flipping out to lay flat for cargo was awesome for the dog, he had plenty of room back there and i didnt have to worry about him scratching the leather or anything like that.

All in all, very happy with my new ram... just have a few factory defects with cosmetics that i need to fix.

Hey slik, I see you are from Michigan, whereabouts are you at and where at up north is your cabin? I'm from Canton, about 20 minutes outside Detroit, and I have a cabin in Clare. Good to see another Michigander and good to hear you are liking the truck!
