F I N A L L Y . . . . heading west.. Tooling Along . Driving the packed up Camry from Maine to Dallas area of Texas on this leg.. Route is Maine to Pittsburg on first leg..Staying there for 2 nights, maybe a tour at Falling Water (Frank Lloyd Wright's signature design at Mill Run PA) then on to Waynesville Missouri ( around Ft LK Wood). There for 2 nights to see my daughter. Then to Little Rock for 2 nights, then to Richardson/South lake Texas area for a while. Barth is there so will be finishing up some work (maybe the fuel tank concern) and then towards Nor Cal. Anybody on this route for a hello? Leaving Maine at 0001 hrs on Sunday so not much chance there Smiler but maybe around Pittsburg, Waynesville, Little Rock, and D/FtW areas.. just wondering.. PM with any contact info...we promise we won't stay long Big Grin !

Just curious Mike, to know if you will be doing all the driving once in the Barth.

On the Texas/California journey, just me Barthing..Cindi will be following in the Camry.. After that she says she wants to learn how to drive it.. just a little apprehensive about air brake's, vehicle length/width, etc....but she's a trooper and will do fine.. I actually haven't driven an air brake equipped vehicle in about 15 years so will be jogging that ole muscle memory..its in there somewhere Smiler

I do not find any difference. The pedal on the left is stop. The pedal on the right is go.

Mike and Cindi;

Have a great trip. Kelly and I share the driving, I had a smaller Barth years ago, so I was use to driving, but 32 ft. has been new and it is intimidating at first. You just have to get use to it, and practice. Also, driving in areas where there isn't as much traffic is a good place to start. I find heavy traffic and lots of trucks a little nerve racking. Cindi- you'll do fine!
