Well *we* will be part of any traffic congestion on I-20 across the top of the state of Louisiana this Saturday!

Going to pick up our BUFFY! All fifteen of the small items are fixed, so we'll head over to pick 'er up, then drag her over to the board walk, park 'er way out in a parking lot then mosey on in to Salt Grass Restaurant for another "mess"*** of prime rib!

Had that at the same restaurant a month ago and ohh emm gee it's nectar of the foodie gods I'm tellin' ya!

Then we'll be draggin' er back home.....ahhhh ready to git out 'n about again!

***mess; enough to get ya "gut sprung" in Cajun lingo

On our drive home on Sunday, we thought traffic was light because most people took the week off and were not headed home on Sunday.

What we did see more of is the dreaded left lane driver. No matter what, they just will not move over, speed up, or let you past. Must be with the holiday, more people driving that normally don't use the highways. Just had to wait for a spot and pass them on the right. With the traffic being lighter, this was an option not normally available.

Today the price for a US Gallon in Canada costs $4.98. We pay $1.40 a litre. Thinking travel in Michigan would be cheaper for us even with travel insurance, currency exchange and less expensive CG fees and food. Our equivalent per litre price is 93 cents.

In all seriousness, my dealer told me that they can't keep up with sales. Seems people have dealt with things long enough, plus banks are starting to ease up on loaning money. They're spending again, I just hope that it's not too fast or too soon.

Same from my dealer. 200 new units this spring, they move on average 10-15/week. Place is always hopping. Showroom to the parts department to service area.

My warranty coordinator told me this morning that THIS is the most frantic work week of the entire year for them. She cited "customers who don't camp regularly/often like we do" suddenly have an urgent request for something to be fixed for the July 4th weekend.

In spite of this holiday crush they stuck to our "we need it back by...date" and we'll be picking it up Saturday, since we are NOT camping this weekend. No how no way.

Have I told y'all lately how awesome our dealer is? /snark

I love Cary roads when it snows. They're the only ones that get plowed/treated. I'm just glad I don't live in Cary...just drive through it to and from work.
