Sorry Mt yes LOL we are all on a trip alright
The temp should be as stated before between 225 - 270 for optimal comfort but there are the factors as Snowman stated that will have you running in those temps.

Great hornytoads Snowy $600 basically for 2 weeks worth of porridge for the kin, man thats a tough note, I would surely starve and die in your neck of the woods LOL we use $600 in fuel a month I can't imagine another 1200 in food added to that lol I'd be flying leaf planes and coaxing the ants to build me a giant sand castle

I don't know but I've heard that the wind here in Livingston is equal to or greater than that of Chicago.

I've never been to Chicago. Maybe some day I will. Funny thing is, I never used to notice the wind much till I started flying.

Wind is your friend........unless you're flying an electric.

Chicago shouldn't be called the windy city.....it should be called the spendy city! The last time I was down town......the hotel cost us $435/night!!! Needless to say the next time I travel to Chicago........I'll be sleeping near the airport!!!!! Motel 5 1/2!!!!

Kerwin....I've got a picture of the T_ _ _t that I'll be downloading once supper is in the oven.......you tell me if its worth bringing!

Anyone know where I can get some great fuel-proof (yeah, save the leecy lecture for someone that cares) stickers from for my UCD?

Yeah, can't remember the last time I actually spent a night in the city...way too expensive, agreed!

Oh, I forgot about the tollways......worse than NY, NH, NJ, and MA combined! Ughh! I have to drive through those both ways on this trip!!!! dang!!!!

Supper was simple fare.....homemade Kraut-burgers or better known as Bierocks....for those of you not in the know.......that's a filling of ground beef, onion, cabbage, vinegar, and salt baked inside a golden brown bread crust. The house is filled the smell of fresh baked bread.......tonight it will smell differently......once the cabbage kicks in!

No body knows of a place for fuel proof stickers???? Wow! I feel like mt-flyer with his head-temperature question!!!! I think T_ _ _taholics are being infected with this electric virus!!! Wussing out! Yeah.......I smiled when I said that!

Kerwin.......the picture is coming.......#1 daughter just pulled in from Utah!
