The difference being that Honda's position was: "You're on your own, now!"
Sorry, cant help you there. I had a Saturn and now the Wrangler, and knew going in that they could go 4-down. Maybe someone with FMCA membership can help you out.

Sue, as you may know I'm gathering info for a possible purchase of a Jeep. I see you are changing from a Sahara to a Cherokee, why? What does one do that the other wouldn't. What is the reason your switching? Trying to avoid making a move we may regret later. We drive a loaded Tahoe that we love except its just not that good off road. We got the off road bug!

RVM's think outside the box here is Tim's answer to someone that was having trouble with a cat getting under the dash and someone suggested velcro for holding up a screen.

"I thought it would work better to put the grabby side out and just stick the cat to it.

If that don't work I've seen some use suction cups on the cat's paws and stick them to the inside of the windows!"

We had a cat we named Velcro. Because as a kitten when we picked her up,she would put her claws in the furniture, and it sounded like Velcro as her claws came out of the cloth. It didn't hurt her or the furniture as she was equipped with tiny little needle-like claws. Loved that cat.

We use to keep cats around all the time (barn cats). Helped keep the wildlife at bay since woods are nearby. As kittens appeared and was befriended by my young sons and DW these kittens moved from the barn to the back porch. The screens on the bay windows where our kitchen table sets still show the scars (holes from claws) where these kittens would hang to watch us eat. Over time the cats just seemed to disappear, could be due to the mountain lion spotted not far from here. Most likely due to neighbor who said cats (didNt know they were mine) keep getting into his chicken pens.

We only have labs now! I like animals that do what I tell them. Missed the mark on my three sons, haven t given up on DW.

Teffy, if I remember correctly you also was a boiled/steamed okra lover. Had the last boiled okra from garden with my black eye peas and yes, hang jowls on New Year's Day. Thought of you!

Haha! Makes sense to me.

If you are in dry enough air, "balloon" them.
Just rub them in your hair and stick them on the ceiling.
I dont have hair, so.......

Hiya! Barb has the right if it: calm water. Mostly.

We do paddle up & back, or down & back, and sometimes both. Seldom do we put ourselves in a position to fight strong current. Occasionally we need to cross an area of open water to reach the mangrove tunnels or sheltered bay...or lunch at a beachfront seafood restaurant.

Now inner tubing on a river, that's where that pickup crew comes in handy downstream. It could be a long walk back!

Cheers!
Sue

Used to have a Tahoe too. It was a great vehicle for us. Traded that, eventually, for a Chevy Traverse, and now are reducing our number of vehicles by one--selling both the Traverse (which was getting little use) and the Sahara.

The Sahara was purchased specifically as a toad and has served us well. It tows 4 down, of course, and has enough room in back for anything we need to carry now. It is stick shift, 2 door, and soft top. We have both enjoyed driving it. It rides like a Jeep, but we never found that to be a drawback.

There are a number of reasons for the trade. First, the Sahara is high enough that it is getting more & more difficult & painful for these aging, arthritic bones to get into. The back seat is not accessible to adults from the doors, although you might crawl in from the back. Not. We just removed that seat. We never took the top off, and the back window was cumbersome to lift for access. It took quite a while to find a suitable rack for my kayak, too.

DH really wanted to trade for a Trail Hawk, but since we do not plan to go off-roading, the Limited makes more sense and still has all the bells and whistles he wants. Hatch back, rack-ready, 4-door and a seat we can offer for passengers, good sound system, and a more comfortable ride.

If you go for a Cherokee, DH reminds me to say you must have "4-wheel drive Active Drive II" if you want to tow flat.

All the best in your decision-making. This is the best for us at this stage and, of course, YMMV.

Cheers!
Sue (and Martin)

Mutant Service Announcement

So... back to Hospital today. Was afraid my shortness of breath wasn't improving quickly enough. So I get another breathing treatment - EKG - a steroid injection and a steroid script. X-rays today compared to Sunday - no change so not worse. Btw - big baby here - steroid injection IM right arm - ouch! The stuff was thick as bearing grease.

Thought is the flu triggered bronchitis - and is dug in. Also - once the flu passes - now have a pulmonary specialist to see to be sure I haven't moved into the world of COPD. No lectures here please - the habit is kicked. I wasn't the picture of perfect health before, but the change here is dramatic. Sit up in bed - trip down hall - can't catch breath. Needless to say, I'm still not sure where this is headed, but I've set a new course.

Thanks for your thoughts and concern. I really appreciate it. I have never had a flu like this - never took flu shots before. From here on out - flu shots my friends. It is not worth the risk. So in Dallas I think the death toll this year is still at 9 with 8 other deaths being looked into.

I am on leave from work, hospital orders, until Monday. I expect to be better then. I will be quiet now. Doctors orders.
