Recovery successful!t

Well, we are home. Up and back without a hitch... (well, we had a hitch - A Reese!) We got up to Colin's and he had the SOTR all out front, sitting there out of the snowbank waiting for us. I dropped Zoe' and the boys off at Colin's house first, so that Zoe' could hang out with Suzanne and the boys could see Malcolm - they were excited. I ran over to the shop, dropped Doug Reid's Marvel fridge off, loaded our 1960 Dometic and stove into the truck bed, and then put the new upholstered gaucho on top of them, with thick card board seperating the lot. We then hooked up and man - are those lights bright. Drove over to Colin's, we all had some Greek food (ordered in) and then around 2230 we made it over to our hotel for the night, with the SOTR tucked safely behind the truck in the parking lot. There was so much snow up there, it was hard finding a place to park. Our original plan, was to Caravan with Colin and family as they are headed to the Sarasota, FL State Rally, and we would stop off in Lake George at the outlets - I had to bribe Zoe' to get her to come along after our last trip this way! But, we decided since it was such a late night that we would be sleeping in, and Colin wanted to get on the road at 0800. So, we got on the road this morning around 0930 and once on the Northway, I gave Colin a call to say thanks for taking the time late on a Friday night, and when he answered, I asked, "Where are ya?" I figured he'd be nearing Albany - but he replied that he was just at his exit, filling with fuel. We were one exit south, and so we pulled over, waited and then once I saw him rounding the corner, we pulled out - he passed us and away we went. We got lots of looks - the day was sunny, gorgeous and the roads were dry! We pulled 100 miles with them, and stopped as planned at the outlets. Here are a few pictures. Got home around 1800. First stop was a local car wash to wash the grime away. Oh yeah, a future project I've found locally - a very cool Spartan Manor - single axle. A great day!
