OMG, at Brad and Zell's, their Bambi is terrific! (And their house is gorgeous too!)

J backed me into their driveway. It took a few tries and some wear on the clutch, but he got me in beautifully; impressively, even!

Roll on the "You Can't Tow With That" Mayhem Rally! They have the VW Touareg, my dream TV!, so we were the mini VW/AS rally for a bit.

How fun Z!! I'm lovin' reading about your travels and also from the other streamers you're meeting along the route. I'm glad you made it to Brad and Zell's place. They sound like the perfect host & hostess! Of course, you're the perfect guest!! BTW, I cracked up when you said "bahstid"! It took me a second but too funny!

Well take care, have fun and safe travels the rest of the way home! ~Cari~

I would have joined you and Mcair for breakfast the other day but I was out on a first trip of my own... testing the Touareg. We definitely need a "You Can't Tow It With That" Rally. VW Rules!

Zlee and J hit the road toward Colorado! Zell and I are so fortunate to be part of the now infamous first trip! They are truly great people.

Shame we didn't get to meet J, him being a Brit and all. Still, Zlee's an honorary Brit so that's OK :~)

If you go to Ellis KS there is a city park with electric wifi for $15! It's 20-30 min west of Hays. All pull through and shower house. It might be cheaper in the winter.

Miss u both!

Y'all will be glad to know that J is a moderating influence where it comes to towing late at night; he thinks stopping earlier is a good idea.

The author of 300 or 300 thinks driving late is OK? Tut, tut and thrice tut.

J's just wanting to stop for a beer....
