I'm sorry, I missed my exit and didn't want to waste gas going to the next one, so thought I could just turn around there....

Well, I am a newbie in the RV world and one of the reasons I am on this forum is to learn. However, I live in Florida and one thing I know is that RV's and sand don't mix well! If you go to Daytona Beach, there are areas you can drive on the beach, but there are also soft spots all along the beach. If you want to know where they are, just look for the wrecker trucks parked and waiting for the next victim!

The Future

We live in nations (USA & Canada) where they have dropped the passing grade to 55%. Every generation worries about the next, but we now are not allowed to have a child to be held back because they might have their feelings hurt. This video may have been thought to be funny, but for the most part this was a true reflection of the knowledge that our teens have for their country.I hate to admit it, but I failed two grades in school. My life was not destroyed. I got through high school and went on to a career as a Civil Engineer after giving my country five years in the military. I had a Vice Principal at my high school that once stated to me. Michael, I don't give a damb if you receive your social security check in one hand and your high school graduation certificate in the other, you will graduate and you will become a success. Well he was the one who put that certificate in my hand, and I never looked back. I love that man. We are doing our youth a great injustice by not holding them accountable to a higher standard. A passing grade of 55% is not acceptable. Education is the future of our youth. Why are we allowing it to be watered down? I repeat, we are doing our youth a great injustice. I fail to see the humour of this video!

The only question I couldn't answer was the first one. What is the capital of Washington State. The rest I got and I'm a Canadian

The RV photo proves some of us could not escape our teen years.
I agree wholeheartedly. As far as these kids being able to vote; they can't do any worse than any of the older generation has in the past. History bares that out.
Enough said.

Am I the only one to see the irony in all of the spelling and punctuation errors in these posts about the video of stupid kids?

The questions they were asked were not on the "No Child Left Behind" tests so consequently were not emphasized in elementary school. They have "more important" things to think about in high school.

Gee I did that last week in my car!! Danged motorhome manufacturers anyway! I had tire pressure monitors, a 4 corner weigh, set the tire pressures accordingly,new steering stabilizer,koni shocks, a good GPS and this is what happens.

On another note years ago my daughter graduated with honors top of her class. The night of her grad. in conversation I asked who the Prime Minister of Canada was and she and her friend did not know that but could not tell me what the difference was between a Prime Minister and a Provincial Premier. She is now an RN and again finished in top few of her class. She is now in her 40's so this has been going on for years. Do we learn this stuff after leaving school? If so why is education costing more and more every year?

His GPS made him do it. "Recalculating" When possible make a legal U turn" Make a U turn NOW!
GPS = Lying little TV.
An RV'r is someone driving a $300,000.00 Motorhome towing a $40,000.00 car and looking for a free place to park.

Well I resemble that remark I browse using my IPad and the key board and bad eyes make it a challenge for the already challenged and spelling impaired.
