Wow, that would be so cool to see in person.

That would be great to see. The picture reminds me of this video by "
"Love Your RV". They were camping at Elk Country RV Resort in northern California.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, in Orick, California, also has a resident herd of Roosevelt Elk that wander through the campsites.

If this driver blacked out as it says he did, beep sensors and camera/monitor won’t help.

Awesome - will be there in about two weeks and will check it out. We were in Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone in late September last year. The elk completely take over. Since it was rut season the Ranger told us to be sure not to get between a male and his harem or we would be very sorry. Happy to keep my distance from these beautiful animals.

When you retract to lower, it pulls the foot back up and keeps it there. Kind of like belts and suspenders!

That caddy looks more like a '57 or '58. The 1955 caddy didn't have the dual headlights.

I’m guessing ‘58. I don’t remember ‘57s having dual headlights, either.
