A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Colfax

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

I rented a Dodge Grand Caravan to pick up the AB-577. I fell in love with its ability to fold down the seats and carry cargo:

That is an 8′ ladder – the AB-577 is 8′ long

I have always had “stuff” to carry – lumber, bikes, etc and never had a car, truck or van to haul the stuff. I realize now what a bad deal a small SUV is – it can’t haul anything but gets no better gas mileage.

The seating options are great – but I’d rarely have the seats up

I am sure I’d have the back two seats permanently down. But I digress. The real reason I rented this is because its perfect to haul the AB-577, and the ride is very, very nice.

AB-577 fits like a charm -awesome day

I had breakfast with the Sierra Foothills ARC – in Auburn – a fantastic and historic town on the crossroads of Route 80 and 49. My parents retired in Roseville – at the first Dell Webb, so I know this area quite well.

I listened to KXPR Sacramento State radio – its a Classical radio station, and a superb one at that. Between Radio Expo in Sacramento – where I picked up the KWS-1, and several treks to the Auburn / Grass Valley / Nevada City – I have quite a few Ham Radio memories where my travels took me up there in the beautiful Sierra Foothills.

The end of a great weekend!
