    Thanks Rob. As I've told the story after the fact, I realized very early that it feels weird to actually complain about it when I could have very easily been NOT HERE any longer TO complain about it!
    I thank my wife for her prayers for a safe trip when we left, and while we were away! But the real thanks goes to God for keeping us safe!

    Quick anecdote for anyone else religious...
    Before we left my wife Janet was worried and we were all packed up and even out of the driveway when she ran out of the house with some Holy Water from church. She said I couldn't leave until she sprinkled some on the van to protect us on our trip. I was actually getting a bit upset with her, because I had just cleaned and waxed the van and she was sprinkling it all over. So I actually stopped her.
    Maybe if I had not have done that the ambulance would have missed us entirely?!

    I sure hope so!
    I really want to be better at tuning. I hope I can have it much better this year.

    And today I picked up a van I found for parts.
    The repaint on it is horrible. You've heard of a 10 footer, well this is about a 60 footer.
    But it should be usable for what I need.
