Now, where's my real loaner?"...and he hands me the key and says "do us proud at the Corral". For one of the few times in my life, I was stunned speechless. The grin probably said it all. And...since that was in Austin and I live in Boerne, it was a VERY nice drive home!

Dang thing has more levers, buttons, screens and such than a 747, though. Not sure if I'll figure it all out before I have to give it back.
