There is no problem Ted. All she needs to do is turn the coach around and back across the bridge. Isn't that why Alpines have rear-mounted cameras?

Norm, you obviously have suffered a loss.
My condolences.

But if your avartar is your own puppy then you really won't be traveling alone but with your faithful campanion

He/she looks like there is some Chow there, just like my Maddie

Great dogs!

On another thread, Rick M said: [the Apex]"CCC (Cargo Carrying Capacity) was only 700+ lbs.!!! That means if you travel with 3 other slightly overweight people and NO cargo - You will be over the legal weight capacity of the coach..."

Even though I only weigh 202 and, unfortunately, will now be traveling alone (once probate closes and I finally have an Alpine something), I find it difficult to get very worked up or concerned about CCC. Some government bureaucrat who does not know asphalt from concrete writes some regulations having to do with the manufacture of cargo carrying vehicles, the manufacturer on the advice of their lawyers protects their b--- by overly conservative specs, then we the dumb peasants who buy said cargo carrying vehicles are supposed to lie awake at night worrying that if our really really fat cousin rides with us in our Alpine, the CCC Police are going to nail our b--- to the pavement-- whether asphalt or concrete.

In 70+ plus years of riding the highways and byways I have never even seen a CCC policeman. Does anyone out there agree with me that CCC is the very last thing we should be worrying about as we scurry about the country? Or should I leave the lights on at night just in case?

Usually Too Tired To Care, Norm </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thanks for your condolences.

Avatar is photo of me at age 11 months. No chow in lineage but possibly a bit of lonely jackal (according to my wife).
