Houston We Have A Problem



My kids know that there was a time when I watched Apollo 13 almost 24-7. It was my de-stress movie and well.......I was a bit stressed. Anyhoo......there is a part in the movie where the rocket is out of control and Tom Hanks has his hands on the stick shift and says "Why can't I get control of this thing, it's like having a dead elephant on our back?" Well, pulling this r.v. feels like a dead elephant on our behind. Because we are taking "extra" stuff and depositing it at the folks, we are towing a ton. The front end is up and when anything larger then a V.W. beetle whizzes by on the freeway, we take a ride. We are presently at a rest area...resting along side of the big "truckers", and the 'hub' is shifting weight around to see if it will help. We shall see. In the meantime., I just had a bag of m&m peanuts and Skully did his thing. Not sure how far we will get today....knowing the 'hub' he will want to get there tonight. It's a guy thing! So readers, our adventure has begun. We'll let you know when we've "touched down".

I love watching you guys "float" all over the country. I am praying for your safe arrival. I remember when our family took an RV to Florida. Somehow it was nicer when we arrived:) Hang in there and enjoy the trip. Don't worry about the gas. It is cheaper than a mortgage payment and you have each other to enjoy the ride with .... Love you, Jackie
