Newbee, NC Bob also had cat surgery, and is doing fine.  He and Jackie are likely headed for Florda as we speak...Cliff may have more infor on said trip?  Either way,  Bob's DSL has been DC'd so he is out of pocket at this time.  Jackie is doing well also.   They are planning doing Arcardia.   
Regarding my headliner...it's a heavy plywood panel with vinyl on it.   Ain't no velcro gonna hold that thing.  We still have to install the rest of the headliner.  I've decided to attach a plywood base and glue the Ozite up to it.   Wanted to have it removeable, but...don't see any way.  Not and keep the ceiling smooth. 
Craig, what was the shortcut to the DeLorme stuff on the GPSnow site?  All I found was Garmin and MS Street ??.   I must have missed the DeLorme section...nothing new there!
Since I want to hide the unit, battery  powered BT won't be an option.  I'm gonna just try it with the unit on the dash.  If it works good.  I'm gonna install the horns tomorrow probalby and forget the "upstairs" antenna.   
Hell, I'll duct tape it to a mirror if I have to.    Not permanently of course. 
The only long triop planned now is Arcadia, and I can find that without any "aids"...just like these sort of toyz. 
Thanks for all hte info, JR

Hmmm, yeah,  I don't see Delorme there now, other than topo mapping software and map books. I was sure they had other Delorme stuff.

Hey Newbee & JR,

NCBob should be arriving at my place on Tuesday afternoon.

He's driving so the surgery must have worked out OK..... :P ::)

Poor old NCBob must be having some bad karma.   He's going down in the worst weather we've had all fall!   I may just follow him down.  It's cold and raining up here.   I"d rather be in florida.... :-[
However, did get a lot of work done inside the bus today.  It's warm in there.
Cliff, post us'ns something when they arrive.   We may have to go help'em somewhere?   
Hope all goes well.  JR
