The van rides really nice and does not "bottom out" like my son's Uplander. When he started driving we bought him a Chev. Uplander - nice van, but bottoms out ALL THE TIME as do most all lowered vans. Good luck with the van and, again, welcome!!
    I'm so glad you like your E250. With the back pain I have a smooth ride is just what the doctor ordered. And with the $ fortune I paid for this gimp-mobile, It better ride like a Mercedes.

    Can't say enough about getting a good exercise/home PT routine established. It's done a world of good for my son physically and mentally.
    Stay strong!
    I have to customize a lot of my equipment or suffer with less than ideal. What a bummer! Thanks for your advice.

    Hello Spotted Cow,
    We also live in Madison and my brother is C5 from an mva here in Madison 10 years ago, he spent 6 months in UW hospital, 4 in a coma. We have a house on the west side, in Arbor Hills and are loving the neighborhood. Please feel free to PM with any area-specific questions. Try drinking a full glass of water before getting up in the am, really helped Jim. And congrats on the wedding- have fun! Deb

    Hi Deb.

    I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I can't imagine being in a coma for four months and how hard it would be on the family. Arbor Hills is a nice neighborhood indeed. Thanks for the wedding wishes and maybe I'll PM you soon.

    Talking

    Yeah, I'm thinkin' you might be a "little" busy for a while! When you newlyweds settle down let us know and you guys should come over for a little dinner, spotted cow and cards, although we are bigger on the cardgame of Hearts.

    That sounds great, I'd love to come over. Pardon my ignorance, but I don't know what MVA is. You'll have to let me know. Take care, Fred.
