Not today, but Monday this week I took my bi-monthly road trip to a job site in Houma, LA ... and it had been raining quite a bit, so the site was very muddy & sloppy (we are still getting foundations/slab work done right now). Our little golf cart thing was not able to get through the mud to the building pad area, and (for safety reasons) were not all gonna pile onto a piece of track eqipment and take that out there. So, my truck became the "job inspection vehicle" ... passengers were worried since I didn't have "real" mud tires, but their concerns were put to bed rather quickly LOL. Truck did perfectly in 4WD and never missed a beat.

Today the F150 will leave long term parking at the Raleigh Durham airport and go get our ParkLiner travel trailer from the factory and head on home. We have a red eye out of Albany this morning to get us down there around noon, and camping reservations in VA and PA on the way home.

My wife, sister in law, two of our sons and two of their friends came over to crystal river on Thursday to do some scalloping. I pulled our 21 foot pontoon boat which was loaded down and the bed of my truck was loaded down as well. My 2012 F150 with the 5.0 never missed a beat!
