Believe in the impossible and you can do the incredible.
--Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
So, yeah, I've been to a lot of States. That's what several summers in an 1994 Ltd Crown Victoria pulling a pop-up will do for you. I think the only person who has beat me with states is Henson. Yeah, they traveled too, hopefully in better conditions. But the Von Ehr family conditions slowly improved. We actually had a pop-up rather than a tent. This is a VERY GOOD THING, seeing as how if we camp, it rains. . . Murphy's Law right there. So, we up graded to a camper. But we still had a car that would over-heated and very easily boil over. We spent several hours on a pull off on a canyon or mountain road, waiting for the engine to cool down, lots of fun. Well, finally we upgraded to a new Astro van and it works wonderfully and does not over-heat and it has air conditioning. OH, did i fail to mention that the other car did not have AC? It didn't. Imagine going through the Mohabi Desert in the summer without AC. No, don't attempt to imagine, just enjoy the winter coldness, yeah, enjoy the coldness. So, anyway, regardless of the low-points of our trips, which i've just high-lighted, camping and traveling is uber-cool. It's probably one of the most fun things i've ever done. and whoever is afraid of camping is a woos, which is totally not w00t. MORAL OF THE STORY: gO cAMPING!!!!!!!
