It will whip the jeep back and forth till it flips. Or if you're lucky enough to stop it before that happens then you have a brown seat. Lol

Ok, I'll revise the Smart Car wobble to merely being an annoyance.

Before we left on Thursday this happened.

At that dark moment last night a dark problem occurred. Unable to unlock! Got the ladder out. Had locked the windows!
Called Coachnet and a locksmith was to arrive in an hour. I tried the lock one more time and it OPENED! Cancelled Coachnet less than 5 minutes. Miacardial infarction avoided!
Lessons:
1. Leave one window unlocked
2. Only lock the deadbolt

Happy thought is that you could tip it back upright by yourself.

Ugh! Shovel it all back up North! Don't want it. We have had snow here on the Gulf Coast. It's only pretty for about a second.

When do we get to see y'all. (Practice that saying, "Y'all, or "Ya'll" and it is going to be interesting with the British accent.)
