Cool is not exactly what I call them when they blow by me doing 80.

I'm sure you will.

Look for a Blue 2008 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 4x4 with the 5.7L Hemi, Auto Trans fully loaded pulling a 30' Zinger ZT26RL I travel in Vermont a lot.

No really, I've been on both sides and I know what it's like. I'll always move as far left as possible trying not to upset the cart too much. My buddies RV was the worst when I drove it, it's as though all the trucks just sucked me towards them as they passed.

All of a sudden it seems like every trucker is aiming for me !

I have a small 12' camper for the back in the mountains camping.
Buck shot, My dad, my two older kids and I go to the Boundry water canoe area almost every year, ( not going this year). It is in Northern Minnesota on the Canadian border. It is completely primitive. No campgrounds, basically you just pitch a tent. We go to Basswood lake which allows boats with motors. we used to canoe in, but dad is getting up there in age and this is easier on him. This area is exactly the way it was when the Glaciers receeded. no signs, no lights, no cabins nothing but Gods creation. Some of the best times I have spent with dad and the two older kids. last year I had to do surgery on dads hand. He was taking a pike off and put two of the three trebel hooks through the palm of his hand. We were approximately 42 miles to the car and another 16 miles to town. The worst part is there is a two mile portage. my dad and son watch a moose walk through camp last year as well. There bears, wolfs, eagles, deer and of course great fishing. As far as I know this is about as primative as it gets.

now thats camping

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
