Who here likes the wind?

Just came back to Colorado from the Badlands in South Dakota. Coming through Wyoming the winds were-a-blowin I had to use my homemade rig to keep the couch side - slide cover from taking flight. Holding the steering wheel into the wind is so relaxing. :-).

Right....just like boating....coming or going, the wind is always on the nose; you just have to adjust for it and keep on truckin'.

It seems that every time I hook up the 5er the wind starts to blow!

And always either in your face or at an angle.

Montana can be breazy as well.
A few years back, while hauling our old streamlined 5th, we were pushing into a 50 mph swirling headwind. Finally gave up and pulled into the campground at Columbus. It wasn't that big of a deal with that camper, as it pulled like a dream, but the fuel mileage wasn't too great, so why not stop.
While we were setting up, a few big motorcoaches pulled in, and their drivers were white as ghosts. They said they were almost blown over numerous times, and it scared the heck out of them.
Needless to say, checking the wind forcast is now part of our routine.

Of course, cannot recall a tail wind for more than 15 minutes!

Wind doesn't blow; it sux. Reminds me of an old joke about why it's so windy in Oklahoma; because Texas blows and Kansas.......

They even sell t-shirts at the rest stops on the K turnpike. Big Sunflower on it, above which it says "I love the view of Kansas" and below it "In my rear view mirror"!!

Almost anything I've ever done for fun was ruined by wind; water skiing, model airplanes, etc.

And when it's 110 degrees here in AZ, the wind is deal calm.

Boowho??

P.S. CERTAINLY, no offense intended for Kansas people
