And for the last time ever - I like Jeeps - and some of my best friends are Jeepers - but as a daily driver I was not comfortable with climbing into it - every so often was fine - but not daily for me. Same for a truck. It's just my physical challenge that makes it less than desirable for extended use or ownership.

No offense taken Jeff - and since we spent the night texting about other things and sipping beverages - it was great catching up!!!

HI Marcia!!
Hey Steve,

Didn't ya know beating a dead horse is good exercise ?

But my guess is I'll still be driving my Jeep when you trade out your rainbow cruiser.
My last truck was a 1994 Chevy CK 1500, when I sold it in 2012 it had 285,000 miles on it and everything still worked even the cassette player.

One point I'd like to point out, for those of you that have Diesel Pushers you more than likely have enough power to pull anything you want all the way up to an FBI Suburban.

Just so you know I keep tow straps, and if we happen to get stuck in sunshine we can get out easily.

GOOD MORNING MUTEY'S

Cheers !!!!!

I bet you said that exact sentence when you were about 10 years old. LOL

Tell Annie that I think Black Betty suits her distinctive nature much better than that limeade wanna be.

Just wait -- skills start dropping like flies after 60, Bro. The best thing about retirement is that it doesn't require multi-tasking.

The best thing about mornings? Waking up to mutant banter over that first cuppa.

No wait! The best thing is waking up. Oh yeah!

She found it and it was so excited by the flames with a touch of pink etc. And it's a 3 speed - so better than a 1 speed and not so much junk as a 7 or more speed. ☺

On the DP and pull capability - Bonita is rated for 10k but when I looked - my hitch is only 5 K. I take that as a hint.. but agree with you in theory.

Tell Theodore that Sparky says hi.

Hey Steve,

You are going to need a 3 speed scooter to keep up with Annie !!!

I am so thankful for the first cuppa of the day.

Cheers !!!

This is Bon's Cruiser. It's called a "Panama Jack". It's a one speed but for the most part we are just cruising around the campgrounds we stay at. It has a basket for the dog, a drink holder and a bottle opener on the front fork(my favorite).

I have documented my '71 Schwinn here before - need a new pic. Maybe I can work a trade at a bike mart.
I needs a motor.

And puh-lease don't let my DW know that you are giving me a mop. In 19 years, she hasn't found out that I know how to use one.

Lesson #1. When anyone gives you anything related to house cleaning, ask where the pull cord is to get it started.

Several years ago, DW asked me to clean house after our dog passed awa to get the hairs etc., out. I opened all the windows, got out the leaf blower and ..... well it worked.

Moving further down the punch list - appointment made for tow bar etc September 3 and 4 - going with Sterling All Terrain - Roadmaster EZ Baseplate - And the Invisibrake - having rear hitch installed on "What's her name the CR-V" with a Swagman bike carrier for Black Betty.

The list is growing short - as is the time....

Yes, and it's rather unsettling occasionally:

Mushoo: "Knock it off."
