I don't know why, but I always chuckle when I see cats on leashes at campgrounds.

Here's our neighbor, Leo:

Doesn't look like the trailer is actually attached. I think the bug is just "parked there."

Doesn't look like there is even a hitch on there.

I personally like to back my Jeep up to the hitch of my 33' bumper pull.. I bet some of the neighbors scratch their heads at that one too! LOL! :-)

I used to have to do that. Our county had a law that "no unhitched trailers" were allowed on public roads. I found out because I left my pop-up camper parked on our street while we figured out titling (it had temp tags). It got a citation that it had to be moved within 24 hours.

I called the officer and explained that with the holiday weekend, I couldn't get it titled; without being titled, I couldn't take it to the storage lot. I asked him about the technicality of just hitching it to my truck and if it could sit there like that. He chuckled and confirmed it.

So after that- I'd just back my car up to the coupler and no one fussed. In fact, a couple of other neighbors also did it (before I did- I just never took notice).

I did the same with the fifth wheel- I'd lower the tailgate and back the bed under the hitch. It looked hitched up and no one fussed.

Our tomcat (bless his soul - passed just last Friday at 19yo) didn't need no stinking leash. He used to go on walks with us and just trot right along like a dog would.

ID:	149977Is this what you're looking for? I found it at Sea Pirate Campground in West Creek, NJ. Yes, the Flux Capacitor was operating. It also has Christopher Lloyd's autograph on the glove box (backed up with a photo of him signing it).

On our last trip, I saw a red GTO ( '65 or'66 ) towing a trailer approx 27' long. It was traveling the opposite direction, so no chance to get a pic.

Trip from Saratoga springs to Pittsburgh I got somewhere between 65 and 70 mpg.

Wasn't a race car and probably wouldn't tow much but that is what I use to compare all the new "fuel efficient " cars against now and nothing comes close that I've seen plus that was over 30 years ago.


I use to get 41mpg off my gas 1980's Ford escort. That thing was a beast. It was a manual which I thing gave it the better gas milage.

From stories I've heard the guy was involved with Tito's vodka before a falling out and starting his own place. They make a red grapefruit vodka that is
fantastic
