Anyone know of someone towing a KIA Sportage 4 down?

Pro or con??

Good morning Muties !!!!

I have inadvertently stumbled across a ponder as I sit here having a morning cuppa.
We parked overnite in a Walmart lot, far far away from the entrance to the store, the lot is empty except for us and a class C, but the day shift employees are arriving and it seems as if I'm in the middle of the flight path and they get as close to the front of the coach as they can without hitting it, I find that somewhat odd. Ponder between yourselves.

Cheers !!!

Jeff I have been known to take shopping carts, tilt them back on the handle so they won't roll away, and block off spaces in front of me so as not to get blocked in by early arriving WM associates.

They are instructed on where they are to park, you might have settled right in the middle of their space!

You have been known to put up fences. You do leave a gap in the carts so you can sing "Don't Fence Me In", right?

Dave I'll let you in on some great news, the fence is finished!
Well there is one gate left to hang, someday, but it's currently blocked off with a cow panel and RibEye is walking the fields!

Son & DIL put final section up while I was out of state!

I'd send pics but it's raining! But that's ok, garden is popping up good. Lots of barn floor clean out and spring rain. Hope to have a good crop!

Thanks, Wayne - that was nice. Homesick? Not so much - the farm here in Illinois is now my home but I do remember with pleasure visiting gardens just like that back over there. My Mum used to love her garden and for a fleeting moment, I though that was her in the film! Thanks again

R U an RV Mutant too?

Oh good grief! I seem to have caught up. Now if I only had something to say ....

Oh, virtual hugs and many real ommms for Dwayne and Shara and that J.E.E.P.! Hang tough, you two. Your mutant family is here for you.

Welcome newbies! You got everything all cleaned up w/ your new broom & dustpan? Looking forward to meeting up w/ you somewhere on the rainbow!

Who'd I forget? If sniffing rosemary improves one's memory, I'd better carry a bunch w/ me at all times!

Cheers, y'all!

1995 318 full time 4 X 4 job that is a tad loose with the MPG.

According to the build date it is just over 21 years old and the A/C still works great.

No body rust

If I idle it a bit it blows a smidgin of blue when finally underway for about a block.

Loves going fishing into some pretty rough trails to outback trout lakes.

The water leak I fixed in 'Gracie' has lead to another couple of small jobs that we found when we did that shakedown run. Nothing serious but just a few more nigglies to take care of and then we'll find a couple more. You all know the routine.
