Never thought about that building providing a feast for birds, but that has to be the right answer!

now I have to go read up on how to do the signature thing cause I can't remember which link to use. I should
probably use my computer more often cause I can't remember how to do stuff on it. :o :lol:
I've been relying on the notebook and cell phone way too much. I think my signature picture is just too big, maybe
if I think a little harder I'll remember how to shrink it just a little. ;)

Alice, I recall that campground where you took me last year. I remember thinking then that would make a beautiful picture. In fact, I think I took one. Looks even better with your new ride (Old Lady Somewhere) front and center and ready for new adventures.

It really was a nice campground, I really liked the paved spots and it not being like a parking lot.

It's truly a beautiful place... A great backdrop for Somewhere.

Well I'm a little behind on reading! Yes, Lyn, The World's Largest Bird Feeder is what many South Dakotans jokingly call the Corn Palace in Mitchell. It is an interesting stop and see. I haven't actually been inside for quite a few years but understand that it has been improved and is quite educational. I always see the outside updates because I drive by it often when I go to Mitchell.
My mind works like lightning...one brilliant flash and it's gone.

Hey Alice, here is some food for thought in getting set up for towing. It is really interesting.

http://www.readybrake.com/store/p4/Read ... w_Bar.html

You normally have to have base plates installed on you toad and that doesn't change. You must have a braking system that is controlled by your RV. You, also, must have a tow bar. All of that can easily add up to $3000. But with this system it has the braking installed in the tow bar and that saves you about $1,000 +/- $200. I know that the installation costs have to be included and I did that on my 3k figure.

I love my Stay-and-Play braking unit, but this would have save me a bunch of gas dollars. My next unit will be this. Oh, YES, I probably won't have another setup. They last a really long time.

I looked at the Ready Brake in Q a couple years ago. I've had trouble off and on with my braking system and they said with the regular Ready Break I could keep my current tow bar. My system got fixed free in Q that year... But is acting up again, so there's a good chance I'll go with this. I need to talk with them and make sure I can keep my current tow bars. I like the simplicity.
