That is more or less the case. Most of the state is 70-75. Keep it under 90 and you are usually fine. I am not towing of course.

I worked in North Dakota and Eastern Montana in the early 70's. The Montana speed limit was Reasonable and Prudent, which was actually whatever the Trooper decided that it was. All that ended with the oil crisis and the implementation of the 55 MPH national speed limit in 1974.

Lucy and Olivia rested today and we slept in. We spent the morning reviewing our information on Fred, the new truck that we are planning to order. We got some price information from a Chevrolet Dealer in Jasper, Florida. Now we have some decisions to make.

We also had telephone contact with a man in Tennessee who had purchased an Outfitter Pop-up Truck Camper, like the one we just ordered, about a year ago. We discussed options at length. He told us about the options that he was very happy with and the ones that he wishes he had gotten. This was really a big help as we can still make changes to our truck camper, Ethel.

We then headed out to Lowes to pick up some pvc plumbing parts to repair a broken lamp in Lucy. SuEllyn came up with the plumbing parts method of lamp repair. It's kind of hard to explain. See the picture below.

We toured around St. George and looked around their downtown. We decided to eat supper out, and where else would we go than a local restaurant that has a life size Moose statue out front.

Then it was back to Lucy for quiet time. We will do better tomorrow.

Brian

Hi, what are all of those bumps on the moose, is it Braille?

I think that he just had goose bumps when he saw SuEllyn, the Moose lover, coming.

Great camera sign. Photo shops are disappearing along with film now that everyone can do it themselves on their computers. The grandiose building looks like a courthouse. That's quite a lamp fix—does SuEllyn do wheel bearings too—send her here.

Hi, I have been doing a lot of computer searches on some of the forum members and I found a few really old pictures of Brian.

Sounds like Fred & Ethel will complement Lucy just fine. I'll bet your generators are named Little Ricky and Desi and the kayak is Mrs. Trumbull??

Hi Brian,
Nice pictures. I like the German truck camper. It looks like a 20' ISO standard military command post module mounted on the truck. What a cool ride!
I showed the pictures to the wife. She wants to go to Utah now! That would be cool, because that is where Abby was bought by the original owner back in '72!
Keep the pics a coming.

Robert, little do you know how accurate you are. In the late 60's and early 70's I was a Motorcycle Officer on the City of Tallahassee Police Department. I regularly worked US 27 on the east side of town. US 27 was a 4 lane divided highway where the speed limit went from 70 MPH to 45 MPH where it crossed the city limits. This made for easy pickings. It was like shooting fish in a barrel. I did actually conceal myself behind a billboard with lattice on the bottom at Victory Gardens Drive and Apalachee Parkway (US 27). Southbound traffic would honk and wave at me as they went by as I lay in wait for the northbound traffic headed into town. That was a very special time in my life. I was 23 years old, had a Harley Davidson Motorcycle, and could ride it as fast as I wanted to.

Brian

Actually, the Honda 2000's already have names. They are Amos and Leon. The names really help telling them apart.

Make sure you go to Moab. There are more cool vehicles there than anywhere else I have ever seen.

Lucy relaxed at the campsite while we headed out in Olivia and made a visit to Zion National Park. It was somewhat disappointing that we could not drive through the Park. We had to take the government bus to the trail head that we wanted to hike. What a crock!

We did find a parking place for Olivia near the Visitor Center. This was a lucky break as there were no spots available when we got there. We donned our hiking gear and climbed on the bus. The ride was OK and we got to Emerald Pools Trail. We did the one mile hike into the pools. They were neither emerald nor pools. Brown puddles would be more accurate. We made our way back to the bus stop, where we caught the bus back to the visitor center where Olivia was parked. We were glad to see the maroon girl for our rescue from this national park

We got out of our hiking gear and headed back to St. George. We were glad to see Lucy tonight. We began the process of breaking camp as are heading to Fabulous LasVegas in the morning.

In the last week we have seen so many class C rental RV that are rented by El Monte RV, SuEllyn and I now refer to all class C's as as El Monte(s), rental or otherwise.

Gene, she hasn't, but probably could. She recently rebuilt the brakes and put a new exhaust system on our 1958 BMW Isetta.
