We call that "apple pie". Good stuff! If'n it burns all the way down it's "fightin' shine" (higher proof) if it goes down smooth and you want more its lovemakin' shine. (lower proof)

Well I made it home from NC- no problems what so ever trailering
the 6 x 12 U Haul. As a matter of fact I had to keep looking in mirrors
to make sure it was still attached !! Loaded most of weight up front
and it was smooth as silk. I wasn't to happy with the way the truck downshifts in Tow/Haul mode though when coming to stop on highway-
I know it to help from using brakes too much but man did the engine scream
when dropping down gears !! Most of the time if I saw I was coming to an easy stop I switched out of Tow/Haul & just did normal braking.
Side Note: Boy is that Apple Pie Shine Smooth !!
Thanks too all for inputs !!

Glad you had a good trip! My Dad pulls his pop up hard shell camper behind his 2001 F150 and forgets it is back there all the time!

Glad to hear that you brother treated you to some of VA's finest. It probably came from Franklin County!

I always heard NC was the 'shine capital of the world. Never had any from VA, anyone done any "test" tasting to see which state has the best??

I never went above 55. Truck handled it great even when fully loaded with household goods from our storage unit.
your truck looks great hooked to that trailer! is it a 5 speed or automatic?

Well, Franklin County, VA. still claims to be the wettest County in the USA, and Wilkes County, NC has similar claims. Both still produce some of the best 'shine around. I don't know of any "shootouts" between the two. Y'all gotta remember that this is illegal and the real 'shiners don't need the publicity.
