See now? THAT's helpful!! I can do that!!
I'll have to remember the vaseline trick, too...I have that on hand.
And yes, for all you towing safely fanatics (I'm TEASING
, folks)...we're in the market for a Tundra...or F-150 or something of that nature...maybe after the first of the year. The little truck did great...engine temp gauge barely moved at all...though as we drove over the mountains, I did insist we run the heater (trick learned from the 70's...parents towing a tt with a STATION WAGON
...but we, as a society, were considerably less litigious then). But, we're both concerned about the stress on the vehicle...towing over our beautiful VA mountains...and convinced the summertime heat will get to it.
But, for now, the FUN BEGINS!!! We can load our camping stuff in the camper!!! WoooHooo!!! SO excited!!
