Baby's got a new pair of shoes!! Went to Discount Tire this morning and got 2 Kumo Ectas ASTs size 205/50/16. Out the door for $192. They even threw in chrome valve stems! She tows so nice and stops on a dime with her Surge Brakes
. Didnt even know she was back there. Of course the fastest speed was only 45 mph since it was all town but still nice. She is even narrower than my popups were. Looks to be exactly the same width as my van so my tow mirrors aren't really necessary. I can see behind the trailer just fine.
So we should be headed out tomorrow morning with new tires
, new battery
, full propane
tank and a window A/C unit. Now I need to wash laundry and pack.
I'm picking up US 82 in GA all the way to Hwy 287 in TX just North of DFW down to Bridgeport where my inlaws are. First night should be in Eufaula, MS on the GA border in an Army Core of Engineers Park. I'll probably arrive some time Thursday in TX and stay till Monday morning. That way I avoid weekend traffic and the kids can swim in their pool and see Cars 2 otherwsie they have to wait till we get back and for it to come out on DVD. Also, their cousins are visiting from Tennessee so they get to play a few days and break the trip up. From Bridgeport I'll head North and on into CO and WY. Since I wasnt planning on the CO route I havent chosen a hwy and dont have a CO map yet. Hope to see some beautiful country in CO. Used to live in the Springs back in '87. Also will escape
the heat! The kids have never been to CO.
Not sure how much I'll be on the forum till I get back. My folks now have DSL so hopefully I can pop in occasionally. If not, I'll post when I return around Aug 5 or so.
Thanks for all the help in preparing for this trip.
E'body enjoy their summer, be safe and have fun camping!
