    Hoiw about calling it what it's not? " The plane" for instance, make your friends green with envy as you take your plane to arizona.

    I've a notion to drive up to the arctic circle to see the northern lights. Never managed to see them in the far north of scotland it always seem overcast at times when they should be visible.

    This will be our home, soon, and we will be able to move about at will, and drag our few remaining worldly possession along.

    Oh my goodness.

    I see trucks like this & the first thing that I wonder is what sort of fuel usage do these things have? My little Jaxsie gets about 80mpg. I reckon some of those bigguns would be lucky to get 8mpg.

    I've been advised that I can expect up to 10 Mpg, when running downhill with a reliable tailwind.
