GREAT. 2 birds with one stone. I'm looking forward to learning how the installation turned out and what you learned that might make our installation easier.
Second, you are headed to my current favorite area -The Four Corners. We took Amtrak out in 2011 (Dearborn to Albuquerque) and rented a car (a Malibu which my DW hated) and did a circle through NM, AZ, UT and a bit of Colorado. The next year we drove and took a new Town & Country. Had an even better time - did Balloon Fiesta with Gondola Club (not cheap but worth it), Durango to Silverton Train, Lake Powell Cruise and Antelope Slot Canyon, Canyon de Chelley, Moab (Canyonlands and Moab), Monument Valley, Mesa Verde (skipped Grand Canyon as we spend several days there our first year), Las Alamos, Colorado National Monument Park, San Juan Skyway, Santa Fe, etc. Frankly, we just loved it. Hoping to take another trip and will do Bryce, Zion, LV, and then back to Prescott, Canyon de Chelley again for a floor trip, then to Chama for the Cumbres & Toltec steam train trip, Taos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta again. Then on to TX as I'd like to see the Jim Hall wing at the Petroleum Museum in Midland, then across to Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans and up the Natches Trace headed back for home.
We've now watched about 25 editions of Aerial America and think it is the best promotional tool the USA could ever ask for to boost tourism. We'd love to spend a year or two in our MH touring the US -BUT, Customs and Border Patrol and the IRS will only give us 182 days and we prefer to spend the winter in FLA so our hands our tied to perhaps a month a year. We are hoping the Lee and Schumer bill comes back as a jobs bill so we can have another month or two. Since all we do when we are in the US is spend money we think it should be viewed as a great idea.
Have a great time at the Four Corners and I'm looking forward to hearing good news on your installation.
