We had to but travel insurance in case we have trip extended.
We have both our virus shots. Masks on. Social distance. Hands washed. No hectoring please. We believe in science and are cautious.
4 hour we will be there.

We had a nice Weekend in Tallahassee. Weather was clear and in the 60s. We went to see the FSU Girls play Louisville - the number 2 team in the country. The Seminoles won.
The cousins traveled four hours up from their winter townhouse near Disneyworld. They normally live in Allentown PA.

I am so impressed with this hybrid engine setup. It is in a 2021 Ford F-150. It has a turbo hybrid engine producing 400HP. That is enough to covet it. But it uses it big battery to power a 7000 watt inverter. That is enough to power your camper - or even your home when the electricity goes down. If you had the engine in your camper - your could have your air conditioner running all night - without a loud noisy generator. No more disturbing others with your generator. As the battery draws down - the truck engine comes on to quietly charge the battery. You also have 7000 watts of power as you go down the highway. That is a lots of power to run the refrigerator - microwave - vacuum cleaner - AC - lights - hair dryer - TV - water heater.
