I am talking about the 8 1/2 high x 3 3/4 wide tri-fold brochure. It is mostly red with white lettering, and two pictures on the front.

I also got the business cards from VistaPrint with the road on them from Kyle.

We've just returned from a long trip, during which we deployed our levelers about 40 times with no problems.  On our last two stops the right front leveler failed to extend initially and had to be manually coaxed into the down position.  Once it was in the down position it operated correctly.  It also stored correctly.  I think Bruce and Sharon reported encountering this problem, with the same leveler, but not sure if anyone else has had this problem and what the solution/outcome was.  Hoping someone has an idea before I start tinkering with it or attempting to contact HWH.

We aren't experienced mountain drivers (well, in an RV that is), but did have the opportunity to tackle a few mountains on our recent trip coast to coast.

We have a 2552 and tow a heavy Ford Edge (4500+ lbs), both loaded typically for long trips.  This is the first trip I've used tow/haul mode and only used it when there was either a series of upcoming ascents/descents or one long or steep ascent/descent.  I was impressed by how it functioned, and was especially glad I had it going down a very very steep and windy section coming out of Yellowstone.  Never had much of a problem with long, steep ascents if I was able to get the speed up beforehand. But even when I was 'trapped' behind slow moving big rigs I managed 40 mph at about 4300 rpm.....and sometimes was even able to gain speed and pass other rigs, albeit slowly, while on the grade.  If you are familiar with grades such as between Cheyenne and Laramie on I-80, or going over the Donner Pass on I-80 (either direction), then this is the type of grade I'm referring to.

I am very happy we have tow/haul!

Aimee I am sorry if I offended you in any way. You know I am a big fan off your work and all you do for us on this forum. I know that each part of this country has different taste and still I opened my big mouth.

My concern had to do with all that bright red. It seemed to scream at me. It also seemed to be overly crowed with information.

What I was hoping for was a something about that size but only a front and back card type. It might list the company name, address, phone and contact information with room for me to add my name and if I want contact information. Having some information like "we custionize layouts",and maybe the layouts on the back. Also "Call and see what we can do for you"  would be helpful.

As they say "less is more" and "keep them  asking for more". After all the reason I would give them the card is to get them to call Earl for more infomation. Let him do his magic with them.

Again I hope you can forgive me.

Tom, I'm not offended!  I'm also not sure if you're talking about the cards or the brochure.  The brochure I designed.  The cards I have not seen. They may have just used a pre-designed card from a card company.

No worries!

Wow, that's awesome! And although the pictures are great, I'm betting it's a lot more beautiful in person. Only about 2 hrs from us....so it's now on our must-do list!  You mentioned there are three RV parks nearby.  Any recommendations regarding those?

Update....Ford road force balanced all six (6) tires yesterday (to the tune of $300!!!) and said it was all set with one being way out of balance.     Picked unit up and the vibration was the same as before!   Back today to begin to look at the driveline, I supplied them with all of the info that Shipper outlined.   We will see what they find today, to say the least,  the $300 charge will be discussed.  Why is nothing easy?   Ths.

HENRY COWELL REDWOODS STATE PARK

This park is a major attraction for us here in the Santa Cruz mountains.  It is one of the lesser-known in California, so we thought you might like to read our view of it.  

The parks spectacular scenery draws travelers from all around the world.  The history here includes the native people who lived in the area before Spanish rule, early entreprenueurs starting in the 1800s., and the later development of tourism.  Many dignitaries including General John C. Freemont and Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Benjamin Harrison visited here.

Among the large amount of plant life in the park are the tallest old-growth coast redwoods (up to 280 feet tall) growing along the short Redwood Grove Loop Trail.  A photo below is a slice of one of these trees with life rings that show it started growing over 2,000 years ago.

Visitors can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, swimming, fishing and wildlife viewing on more than 4,650 acres of forested and open land in the state park.  There is a small no-hookup campground here.  The Roaring Camp railroad next door runs a Redwood Forest Steam Train up Bear Mountain and a Santa Cruz Beach Train to the famous Boardwalk (only seven miles away).  

Were camped in one of three small private full-hookup RV resorts located just outside of the park near Felton, CA.  Were among second-growth redwood trees that grew up after the original old-growth trees were clear-cut by loggers about 150 years ago.  Fortunately, the coastal redwoods refuse to die even when cut completely down.  A daisy-ring of genetically identical clones sprout from the roots that were left in the ground.  A photo below shows our Phoenix Cruiser parked next to one of these rings that contain seven young trees.

We hope you will have a chance to visit the area sometime, too.

Hi Ann,
I don't know about the routes, but don't do what I did and be so full of adrenaline and excitement that you drive too long.  Take the time you need, get rest in decent motels or whatever, and take good care of yourself!
Enjoy the ride, especially home!
Carol

We drive through Atlanta a couple of times a year.  Most of this goes without saying but I'll say it anyway.  The traffic is never light but sometimes it is heavier than others. If you can, plan your trip to avoid weekdays during rush hour.  We always take the I285 West by-pass except early Sunday mornings.  

Heading south out of Atlanta we always hit very slow traffic on I75 at the Joneboro exits between mile markers 231 to 221.   Heading north if you stay on I75 and go through Atlanta you will find yourself in the 4th or 5th lane from the right when I285 merges in north of Atanta.  This is not a real problem but you will need to be prepared to start moving to the right.

Coming from the north or the south as you approach Macon we always take the Macon by-pass (I475).
