We are packing tonight. Going to the store tomorrow. We hopefully will be hooking up by 4:00. Our friends are leaving earlier so you should have met Fred and Joan by the time we get there. We are bringing spare ribs and green beans. Joan is bringing chicken wings.

I hadn't thought much about until I was just reading your post -- there is a large RV dealer in Cape Girardeau -- and their name is -- Capetown RV.

I am in countdown mode and hope to be on the road by 1:00 p.m. at the latest. My list of things to do is getting much shorter - -
  1. Replace burned out bulbs on Overlander.
  2. Adjust air pressure in Overlander's and Cadillac's tires.
  3. Adjust Cadillac Air Spring pressure to 15 p.s.i.
  4. Final check of hitch adjustment.
It will be good to be on the road again!

Kevin

Big bummer.... Roger has to work tomorrow morning and cannot get out of it, so now we hope to be there by noon or one. There is even a possibility that he may have to go back home Sat night to work Sunday. Our friends are on their way now, so have have fun with Joan and Fred without us tonight. They are cool people so you guys will have fun.

Too bummed to find the sad face smiley thing.

Murphy's Law has been busy -- I headed for Benton at a little after 2:00 p.m. Made from my house to Interstate 57 without incident so I thought all was well. In less than two miles on I-57, I had two disturbing incidents of sway -- not as bad as prior to the earier rally but enough to disuade me from continuing.

I am to the point where I have only one other modification that I can make to my setup, and if that doesn't work it will be switching to the Suburban. One thing is certain if I switch to the Suburban and don't have problems it is defiitely something with either the Cadillac or the hitch setup on the Cadillac.

In any event, I will be on the road tomorrow morning with hopes of arriving at the campground about 11:00 a.m.

Kevin
