The wife is usually amused by this as well.
If you do that with my dog in the car she gets freaked and has to jump into someones lap.

16.3 mpg that last stretch. Ouch. Strong winds from port... I've been fighting the tiller & tacking the entire time. .

Cruise control has been set @ 73.. We are in wichita falls now getting some Mexican food from a mexican to go stand

I think I'll grab 82 here and skirt north... Especially with the rain storms...

We are parked at the stand. He's making it all fresh and says it'll take 10 minutes. Perfect! I am laying on the duvet in the back relaxing while I type this. Life is good

Gotta love vans

I dunno? We didn't use it for the first time until this morning so it was empty over night. I'll let you know when we are near Chicago next week if it does

Last ticket I got was between Dumas and Dalhart TX, I have no ideal how that happened. You can see 100 miles out there. The Copper must have been behind a tumbleweed.

We are at the Texas / Louisiana border pulling over for the night. The last 6 hours have been brutal with torrential full-ditches-flooded-roads wipers-on-full-still-can't-see thunderstorms. We've had to stop several times to let things ease up and have been doing 10 under the limit.

Feels good to climb in the bed

Sounds like a perfect test for how well you sealed up the hole you cut in the roof!
