uncle jack rode in the trailer home to Minnesota from Illinois but he has not
been in it since. The Stag has taken us to Thunder Bay Ontario for The
Rendezvous. I drove it to Osceola Wisconsin for Wheels & Wings. It's been on
several other jaunts around Minnesota and Wisconsin.
When we go to Breckenridge, the Stag will be in the trailer again. But when
we get there, it will be out for the duration unless hail is threatening. On
the San Luis Obispo VR trip last year, we were towing, but drove the TR4
nearly 700 miles.
On our recent trip to Gettysburg for the Lotus Owners gathering, most of the
miles on the Lotus were track or autocross miles. Touring was done in the
Suburban. If I were alone, it would not have happened that way, but Sue can't
easily get out of the Lotus so she seldom gets in it. Not a problem with
uncle jack: She loves both riding in and driving the Stag.
