First and foremost

It's hard to explain the fact you start out going due north to get down south on I-75 heading for Florida isn't it. That quirk of geography has made me more money by winning bets in sports lounges all across North America.

Enjoy your new RV.

Detroit.. The only city in the contential US (Other than Alaska) where when we speak of "South of da border" we mean.. Canada!!!

In fact it IS the only city where you cross to Canada going south, and thus Windsor is the only city where you go NORTH to enter the US.

(IF you are in say Southfield you go south to get to Canada but you go THROUGH Detroit)

ANd if you have even seen the miles long backups on I-96 or I-75 to cross the Ambasador bridge,, As I used to dang near every day going to work...
Home is where I park it!

Thanks to all! The wife and I have been dreaming for about 3 years now. We found a nice low mile unit, and the timing worked out pretty good!

This will double as family fun and tow vehicle for the street / drag strip car

Just finished all the legal crap, Rv is officially licensed!!

May have to go to the track tomorrow.....weather pending.

Look forward to picking everyone's brains, lol.
