LOL. ..... and none of those shocked and horrified neighbor parents thought to inform your parents or the police as an obvious kid roared around the neighborhood for an hour or more. Surely they were able to recognize a motorhome that had been routinely parked right on the neighborhood streets!! And I guess your own parents never even noticed the paint scratches from the broken tree branches, or the shattered marker lights.

I'm no expert on how things worked in Chicago in the mid 70s, but on duty in the AF in the 70s the term "no $#*t story" would have been floating around.

+1 on the no more oversight. 👍

So, I guess you can say I have been driving these things all my life. I have driven school buses with trailers behind, tow trucks since I was 16 and my 36 foot motorhome with a 24 foot trailer behind. Not once have I had any type of training or special licensing and not once have I had an accident. We do not need any more oversight in our lives, folks get along just fine.
That story is hilarious, thank you!
You are so very right, we don't need more oversight/laws to regulate our lives.
