If you're in Floyd, you need to continue down the crooked road and enjoy the amazing music.

Will get the light information later. I inquired about going up from the bumper area to the reverse lights. The "framing" in the rear end cap would prevent access to those wires without removing the inside skin. So we got power off the compartment light and mounted an additional switch for the lights on the side cover wall. One would have to string a wire from front to rear and fasten it to the belly pan to get into the 7 pin wires.

These are very bright LEDs and one might not want to light up the neighborhood when shifting from "Park" to "Drive". Thus the separate switch.

Pie-O-Neer has lots of unusual combinations. I enjoyed a piece of Apple Cranberry after a bowl of their chili and meat soup. I then picked up the uncooked frozen apple, hatch chile and piņon nut pies I had ordered to take home. We prepared one a few days later and they had been very generous with the chilies...whew.

They had a price increase during the week I was in Texas so they are around $30 for each pie. Kathy bakes about 25 to 30 pies each day they are open and are sold out before closing. There is quite a que at opening time.

Pie Town is about five hours east of Phoenix on US 60.

Oh good, Y'all are back. For a moment I thought I was in one of those Twilight Zone episodes where everyone but me left town.

And we're back to "sophisticated" conversations. Happy Day.

BTW, Red, if your 2nd or 3rd home is the Bahamas, why are you not Bahama Red?

Speaking of Bucket List items, someday I want to go on a Caravan. No idea where, though.

Oh yes, that sounds really good. I have that addiction, also.

Back on the east coast, I would almost drive from New England to Florida for some real Key Lime pie!

Come to think of it - what about a caravan with an objective of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and cocktails local to a different state every 3-5 days? Just think about New Orleans, LA - hokey smokes Bullwinkle!

This addiction sux 😄

The imagined aroma of a "foodie caravan" drew me to RANDOM THOUGHTS!
What a fantastic idea....Airstream foodie caravan!

And God forgive me but New Jersey would have to include Rutt's Hut for their deep fried hot dogs with their amazing relish....

Oh this is a terribly bad (and terribly good) idea!

To not mess up random thoughts, I'm going to start a thread and see if folks from all 50 US states as well as Candian and Mexican territories have suggestions 😄

Steve - overly dedicated?

Steve Sue Mac I was also going to start a each State thread. I think its a great idea. Then when you are passing through you can peruse that States thread to see some highlights.

I vote for a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives caravan. With plenty of pie.

Here are the details, well actually photos of the box, for the lights I installed as additional reverse lighting on each corner of the rear bumper. They are made in the Phoenix area. A speciality auto parts store can be the source. Discounted price was about $320 per pair plus tax.
