No problem with bothering me today. I'm stuck out here in Pasadena looking for things to do so a phone call wouldn't have been a problem .

I take it you got the wiring all sorted out which means you're ready to hit the road. Keep us posted during your trip!

Brad

Woohoo! That is great news. You must be psyched! Happy trails and SYDTR!

I've always preferred passing through or around large cities late in the evening or REAL early in the morning. I absolutely hate driving a motorhome through a large metropolis during rush hour. There are SO many inconsiderate and just down right bad drivers out there its scary!
