For fun

Assuming you have a TV and cable in your RV, this is a fun watch.
The Grand Tour, Season 3, Episode 8. On Amazon Prime.
Storyline

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are forced to go on an RV holiday in the southwestern United States, despite regarding such things as slow, uncomfortable and pointless. Pushed to breaking point within 24 hours, the hosts decide to take matters into their own hands by each buying a used RV which they can then modify to suit their own personal preferences before continuing their vacation across Nevada in comfort, or a near approximation of it.

Hi Myron
Though I did not have a dog in that fight I had to look a d see how my alma mater Iowa State did against Baylor in the big 12 season. I knew they lost and probably twice because they never won a a single conference game this year and fired their coach at the end of the season which wasnt right in my opinion. And guess what? Iowa state played Baylor twice and lost by 11 points in early January and by only 5 in late February. So I felt better knowing they played the national champion as well as they did and as well as the runner-up. If I was an AD needing a coach Id be looking at the coach that the incompetent AD at Iowa State let go.

My alma mater was so small they tucked the main campus in between the potato furrows in nw Pennsylvania so of course, no big time team there. Never took a class at Rutgers but being a Jersey boy naturally I was rooting for them against Houston. I know it and you know it: in the last 2 minutes they absolutely choked. I did, however, take a class at Seton Hall one summer so of course I still remember when they made it to the finals and was robbed at the buzzer by Michigan that year.

If you haven't, download the Yellowstone series, seasons 1, 2 and 3 in preparation for season 4 coming out this summer. As I've told my wife, get past the first 15 minutes and you'll yearn to binge watch the rest of the series.

Yes on “The Grand Tour” -- I just watched episode 8, or at least most of it and found them 3 Aussies of a certain age, (late fifties?), were all spot on with their humerous take of life on the road. Buddies (mates) having much fun. Never been down under but confirms my suspicions about their world. Their running quips, conclusions and twisted takeoffs on custom built RV’s made me chuckle.

Notable was the bit with the single coffee bean sliced with a razor blade and dropped into a Mister Coffee pot filled with water and calling it American coffee. Anyone buying coffee on the road will confirm that. Am not a “petrol head,” but I’ll probably watch the rest of the episode later.

I took your advice and watched episode 8. Now I can't un-hear their twist on trailer names. LOL

Correction - Those guys are not Aussies.... British insanity at its best.
