    Hey Rod I know it has to be ground so we rewired it to another hot leg and it seemed to work for awhile. I am thinking it is wired to the radio which has a 5 amp fuse and the lighters carry a 20 amp fuse and when plugged in it will blow the 5 amp. Anyway he is going to check and re wire it this week and I hope that solve that problem. but for the suggestion about the ground.

Going to Padre Island tomorrow and then to the Texas hill country Saturday and then I guess back home. I never kn ew this retirement could be so stressful. What day is it again?

    Generally west of I-35, north of San Antonio, and south of I-20.

    You might draw a 150 radius around Brady and call it The Hill Country of Texas.

    Most people think of the Hill Country as being around New Braunfels, Kerrville, Lampasas, and Austin.

    You can better outline the area by looking at land and house values. The Hill Country brings values up way more than the surrounding areas.

    Dang it Tex...you spoiled my "knowledge" of geography of our great state. And to correct Tex a little...it would be Northwest of San Antonio and way south of I 20. Hunted for years in Brady, and its the geogrphical center of Texas but not the center of the hill country. You gotta go east and south for the hill country. Look for names like Kerrville, Fredricksburgh, Borne, Burnett, Johnson City and yu'll find the Texas hill country or just Google Texas Hill country.

    Jim, I know. I know. Them not being from Texas, I had to give 'em some easy landmarks.

    Hollis, you tell the missus that she won't see any "high" mountains until you get to the Rocky Mountains! :laugh:

    "Rocky Mountain High, Colorado"

    Tex your right about one thing, there are not mountains until you get into Utah or Colorado. Them thar ant hills in New Mexico and Arizona is just that. Hey Hollis stop by Petrified and say hello enroute. I work Sat thru Tues. 945 to 615 Will be in the main visitor center just off I 40. Or let me know when you get settled in Flagstaff and we will try to get over there and say Hi.

    Re: our first trip this year

    Jim I guess that from years of being of being Fire Chief of Tech Service you have to plan everything from the start to finish. Beside I just like to be prepared. I WAS planning the trip back as my brother and his wife are flying out and riding back and they only got one week off. My brother is retired also, but his wife isn't so she has to be back to go to work on Monday. IF my DW hadn't ask them to join us we would stay out there a lot longer. But we enjoy their company so everything is ok.
