I'd suggest a link that doesn't require you to join a Facebook group in order to read?

Probably take a nap inside the camper it’s really hot in Illinois today. And fortunately I always am able to hydrate and with the Escape, have a restroom if I overdo it. Lawman says shelter in place, we shelter in place. Thank them for their service when it’s over. What else can you do? You don’t say to them I’m blowing this popstand, that’s for sure.

Dave yes it's hot in IL but was hotter in WI saw the temp at 36 in my son's Expedition. I did a Jim Norman type drive 1280 km today now in Ottawa IL heading to Michigan City picking up an SOB new camper for my son. Going to have to learn how to set up the WDH, something I have never done.

Easy does it old man. When that pavement gets hot it’s hard on tires. Especially when you’re running 140km an hour. Look at me, I’m preaching to the preacher. Good luck on your pickup and haul job. You’ll probably be relocating to Elkhart and getting a dually so you can deliver those big Montana’s all over the USA.

First, I would have to join Facebook. Something I have successfully avoided so far.

Actually Dave our son almost took a job last summer hauling new units from IN to MB and wanted me to join him. No thanks! This 23 footer is big enough for me boy what a difference haulin something so tall and wide. Successfully made it from Mich. city to Eric's today, took a scenic route so I could see some of IL and WI away from the interstates.
