Talked to John about an hour ago.  They were in Deadwood, SD and motoring
westward.  I gave him a hard time about the trailer queen motorcycle trip.  He
excuse was knobby tires are no good on the freeway.  :-)

Then I asked him about the trailer with 8 inch tires.  He tells me they had to
stop and add tongue weight because the trailer was tail heavy.  He said it was
so bad they couldn't go over 45 mph or the trailer would start wagging the
car.  They found a crankshaft from a '38 Buick straight eight engine and
bolted it to the tongue of the trailer. Problem solved!  LOL - typical John.
