Back at the house, we watched the NASCAR race from Loudon, New Hampshire. I watched the drivers on my Fantasy team get knocked out one by one. Nothing new there. Sherm did pretty well and jumped in the standings.
I tried to add some minutes to my Tracfone on line but the system declined two of my credit cards. I tried to call Visa but they were "experiencing higher than anticipated call volumes" and I gave up after burning several of my diminishing minutes on hold.
Just a note to let everyone know that my lofty plans for the big trailer appear to have been misguided. After a year of hauling it and occasionally ferrying friends' bikes with us, I have come to the conclusion that it is just too big. It really hits the fuel economy and is hard to find parking spaces for. I think a nice little 5 x 10 aluminum V-nose made by the same folks might be just what we need. We'll work this out on the way home and should have a plan of action by the time we get there.
