You may have computer withdrawal symptoms....but it is not fatal.....at least it wasn't for us in Death Valley (although we did try to sneak some wifi from the visitors center!!!)

..have fun and hope to see you soon. paula

BamoftheVillage,

As you travel the savanna, may the village wisdom accompany you along your journey. Remember...the great leopard who has no spots is like the man who promises a beautiful woman like yourself wonderful things. He's probably a Lion!

Crash test dummies...

O.K. Family,

In the morning we are getting a new set of shoes. We'll be getting Maxxis with the band that ties the tread to the sidewall. We're doing this as our two year old Marathons are cracked all along the tread line. We'll have the tires balanced because...

In a fortnight we'll be doing a Disc brake upgrade and those hubs etc. are balanced. So we'll have balanced running gear.

Mrs. Goin will be locked in the trailer and taken for a ride. (two way) so she can give us a before and after about the difference between unbalanced and balanced running gear.

In the two years we've had the trailer we've noticed about 15 interior rivets that have popped out. We've replaced them.

So what we will be testing is:

1, Maxxis tires and wether they crack or throw treads.

2, Differences in having balanced running gear. Will rivets continue to pop or will sofa pillows continue to wind up in the most amazing places after a drive?

Place your bets now on what you think the final results will be.

I will bet you also get a set of 325/65/18 Nitto Terra Grappler tires mounted on American wheels for your TV.

Note to self. Never give this group a straight line.

Bam: No bet. She already won the war about six years ago.

TIme: We need to get to gether so they can be test driven. Maybe at Uwe's in a couple of weeks. We're doing the brakes on Sunday so as not to interfere with his clients.

I'm wagering "the whole farm" on Mrs. Goin. She'll win big because:

People are not allowed in a trailer coach while it is being towed. (21712[d] VC)

Poor Mr. Goin is being set up. All of the new CHP cruisers in your area is not because a Crispy Creme opened down the street. They are waiting...waiting for VC section 21712 to be violated.

While Mr. Goin is making new AS license plates, Mrs. Goin will be singing Karaoke in South Africa w/ her accomplice.

Tim,

The traffic laws only apply if you get caught.

Betting on Mrs Goin and disc brakes

I am betting on Mrs Goin surviving the Lucy Ricardo ride and that the disc brakes are the answer to everyone's popped rivet prayers.....paula

Its raining here today and it is lovely. No need to water all the plants. Gophers are eating my Nastertiums (sp) anyway.
Hope Mrs Goins will be holding on on the way home with the new disc-brakes if it is raining down in So. Ca. The ride home could be good or it could be popping rivets.

Is Mrs. Goin well trained on skate board or surfing? It's about the same as balancing in the moving pod... beat the balancing game with the Wii.

Make sure she put all the safety gears on, helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, pillows strap on both sides of the body, and most importantly goggles, to protect her from popping rivets hitting the eyes...just sayin'

Large bubble wrapping foil might be the answer. Lots of it. Not for the vibration, but for Mr. Goin's driving.

So are the brakes installed and the Goins are gone home yesterday? If they came home last night something must be wrong if they haven't let us know how it went goin home for the Goins.
