Not me......

Just done back to back Washington DC Trips, followed by a Toronto & Niagara Falls, ON trip.

Now, I'm off to Dismalworld and St Augustine, FL, on Thursday. Oops.......and a 1-day trip to Des Moines, IA, thrown in for good measure on Tuesday.

Jim.

Right now a good long road trip sounds *wonderful* but I do have to wonder how your wives and kids cope on the home front! That's one reason why I would find it hard to have Toon do long-haul.... I have a very demanding job and two kids.

Oi!! I told you to call me when you got back home for a few days so I could make good on the Jeep promise. I've got all the gear

I might also go on a run with you for a few days/ week or two.

How's it work if you wanna go for a dump? It's not like you can just pull over and do it in the bushes when you're driving a honking great vehicle.

Maybe Patrick H and Rushman can answer...
