I love when a plan comes together

by Spitzbub on 08-26-2019 at 09:36 PM
(Hat tip to the Mabster - this was the catchphrase of ol' George Peppard from the A-Team. You know the A-Team, people: Mr. T!) Anyway, we rolled back into town, and what went down last week was the plan.

This was in the works since last year when we bought our powerful, outsized 2017 Nissan NV 3500 cargo van, Moby Dick. Last week Moby Dick met its destiny: we drove it cross-country to pick up the RV it was always meant to tow.
