Hi from "sunny Florida"

Anyone on the east coast is welcome to tie up in our driveway, or like Terry said, out at the farm. I will be at work from tomorrow morning until when, but anyone is welcome.

When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

Umm, I probably shouldn't admit this, but I towed my trailer at 95 mph for a brief time, it handled very well at that speed.
I also towed it during the recent Charley fracas, and got hit a couple of times with 80+mph crosswinds. I took up both Eastbound lanes, but at no time did it feel like it was about to turn over.
Two Airstreams are in a trailer park in Punta Gorda, where most of the other trailers are demolished. They would both be undamaged, except a large tree fell on one, damaging it, and the other one lost the roof A/C unit. Interestingly, they are both still occupied, and livable, although the one that had the close encounter with a tree will have to be retired.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Thanks for all the advice. Since I work for the regional utility down here, on the communications side, I have to stay. At this time, it appears that the track is going further South down towards Tampa. May have dodged the bullet again this time. We will probably get some 40+ MPH winds, so I will still have to take some measure to secure the Airstream.
