Rainy. I appreciate this article and how you tell it like it is and don't sugar coat anything.

i never did have a sugar bowl in my home.


Thanks everyone! really appreciate your thoughts. Im glad i touched on something some newer posters could relate to.

also, another safety tip some women use that i realized not everyone does or thought of....some women wrap the seat belts around the door handles to keep.someone from opening the doors. safety wise, i think susan, fllatie mountain girl and i would just run someone over. mountain girl would dump the body in WY never to be found lol

the problem with the seat belt thing is that some trucks like Big Scotts KW have pop out sleeper windows and some trucks dont. My casacdia doesnt. so, burn to deatb trying to unfasten the seat belt...or get attacked by a norman bates outside. decisions decisions. lol

Actually, the windows in the bottom bunk are doors. They are designed for emergency exit. However, they come in handy some times for loading some things in.

Outstanding article Rainy.

One day we will have to meet. My wife is also from NJ, you 2 I'm thinking would possibly get along great.

OS, the main reason I'm on FB is because when I started this adventure I had lots of folks wanting to know where I'm at, etc. So I decided by using FB (most of the folks that wanted to know are on FB), that way I have only 1 place to update instead of repeating myself numerous times each day.

One of my favorite sayings I use almost daily, "90 percent of anything you do in life is ATTITUDE".

Have a safe day everyone.

Excellent article Rainy. You are spot on all the way around. Personal responsibility and common sense have been dead in 70% of our country for a long time. Well done young lady!!!
