I am so proud of you Sue.... all of the women make Great NAVIGATORS, but we all need to drive as well...... I am learning that Larry is as good a driver as possible, but as a navigator, using an ipad...... well not so much...

We are loving it here in Florida, but have not had any interest in our house in Little Rock.... so disappointing...

Has anyone got any pros or cons about towing a 2013 GMC Terrain?
Irene fell in love with one today and I want to make sure the fit is good.

Read the manual to see if you can tow it four down ... Or Google it ... they are supposed to be a pretty nice ride.

Lots of stuff to see in area. We'll be here for three days.


So far it's been warmer than Michigan. And less rain also.


Ooms to all, and safe travels.

Up by 11:00? AM? Wow is that a new record?

Hopefully Moose can get a Manuel written in Canadian!

Bet this will never happen again

Usually our day consists of get up, pack, slides in, disconnect utilities, jacks up, hit the road, gas stop, lunch stop, get where we're going, reverse morning activity order. Today something a little different happened.

We stopped at a Cracker Barrell for lunch (no, not that) & were seated at one of the two-tops along the wall (that's not it, either). I was looking at the photos and noticed one of a large group of people standing in front of a building. There was printing at the bottom of it so I tried to make it out. Something about a gathering for the Methodist Episcopal Church...in Indianapolis, Indiana. (I believe the date was 1940 but I couldn't make it out clearly). What are the odds of going somewhere a couple of states away and being randomly seated next to a photo from the same city you are?

A simular occurrence happened to us on our return trip from Bar Harbor. We overnight on a shopping center somewhere up north, walked over to a Applebee's and they had a mural painted on a back wall of a little girl in pigtails that was a spitting image of one of our grand daughters. I took out my phone and found a pic of the GD to compare and even the waitress was amazed at the similarities. She still didn't believe we were secret owners of Applebee's and should get our meal free!

He survived, although a bit white-knuckled. You'll have to take my word for it. <sincere, honest face> And Dave ... he wasn't _that_ far in the back!

So here you have it, Pop of my passing the course. Thanks to Di for showing the way. I've been waiting for my chance to do this, in addition to what Martin had already taught me.

Clear the roads: I'll have to practice tomorrow!

A little birdie confirmed without a doubt that Richard is in fact a true Arkie! Seems in the span of only a few hours he managed to 1) get his lawn tractor stuck and 2) get his truck stuck, and all of this was in his YARD !

Richard I know a man with a team of mules that are practically stuck proof! Should I call him?
