Little excitement

When we pulled onto the highway I may have "inadvertently" turned off the traction control and man those roads are slippery in the morning. Lovie was NOT happy. But all is well.

I know you have heard it a bunch Rob, but thanks for sharing, close as we can get this year, but Ozarks are on.

Glad everyone is having such a great time and it appears the weather has welcomed you with open arms.

Are you headed back to Colorado next week. I will be there around the 12th, would love to stop by and see the punisher if we hit the Denver area.

Keep on having fun!!!!

That's a Canadian coupe, though. Does it count?
