Mine is drivable just limited range because of that boat tank (About 80-100miles) sitting in there because a friend has yet to help me put that 95's fuel tank in it and its loud as can be. :lol:

Mike, check w/ Jerry Lemond on camping locations. He's bringing his camper up from Atlanta and had plans to stay somewhere. There's a guy from Tampa, "JerryZ", who could come up with you. PM him to see!

in the early 80's it was truck-inns (i owned a van conversion and custom paint and body shop ) then dog shows off and on until 2005 all over from the Fl. Keys to Maryland , so I like road trips,just need an excuse ( like the sun comes up or I don't see my name in the obituarys )

i still have to work it out as the wife owns a bookeeping and tax business and is working 60-80 hours a week until the magic 4-15-08 date and I am chief cook and bottle washer untill then , but maybe she will give me a couple of days off,she won't come but i'll bring my co-pilot ( Zip the Border colie)

Kristopher - I'll probably drive I-95 to I-24 and go that way we could meet or any one else who may be going and traveling the same route

Andy- i have my camper in the pup at all times (a 2 man PUP :lol: tent) or if the weather is cold or nasty I'll put the cap on the pup

Wow, this started as a local meet and greet and pretty soon we will have a global meeting of the Pup/Luv owners. This is amazing and awesome. I am glad to be a part of such a group.
