Thanks for the vote of confidence, guys!
I'm sure in due time I'll trust it more, but it'* just nerve racking. One thing is for sure - I don't like the ECC. I'm a very simplistic person and having the ECC over complicates things.
The L67 is very nice and has lots of power. But, again, honesty prevails. I really miss the L36 (even with 175K).
In all likelihood, we'll end up driving the GS to Florida. Four people in a Civic on a 1500 mile trip is just downright punishment.
Thanksgiving weekend I'm going to start replacing all of the items listed in my initial post. That should help me feel better.
