I don't see Barney on any of the check lists.

I just drove down to Georgia & back last week. There had to be 10x more cars pulled over in Ohio than all the other states combined. I'm not exaggerating if anything Iím underestimating. I wouldn't go more than 5mph over the limit through Ohio. Wouldn't it be shorter to cut through Canada from Niagara Falls to Michigan?

John: You betcha I'm going! Tried to get the original Tracy to go too... then we'd have had both Bills from the east and west... and both Tracy'* from the north and south.

Bill - why don't I get a pretty cup holder too?

Mike: Barney is a given...I may have to arm wrestle the little bugger to get Shotgun. Good question about the route: One map showed the "shortest" route being Canada while the "fastest" route was the States. So.. that coupled with unknown delays at the border (fears of having the car totally unpacked for us) has prompted us to chose the US route. We have to drive South that far anyhow to pick up Rt 80...so it doesn't make enough difference to risk the border hassel.

Back to topic: Bring Maps and list of cell phone numbers!
