Since the Adventure forum seems a bit neglected lately, i figured I'd displace this topic for more attention here.  Sorry Eric.

I Quote myself:

I wasn't refering to anyone in particular.   I was just refering to some info put out by some so called experts on how to tow a vehicle, who haven't got a clue.  Like the one who made the statement he towed his Sami down the Interstate on the ground at 70 - 80 MPH behind his Caddy a while back.  All I have to say is thank god I live on the opposite coast,  or the ones who are still wet behind the ears, who know everything about everything and who will give you advice on any or all subjects, yet if you handed them a wrench and asked them to perform the task they gave you advice on they wouldn't know how to perform the task or much less even know how to use the tool.

Hey, I might be one of them  ;D but I appriciate every answer to my questions. And if I think I have an answer to a Question of anyone else I'll say that. But if I'm proven wrong I have learned something again  ;) that's what we are here for not?

Hey guy, I hope I didn't offend you by telling these guys I tow my zuk with a Cadillac. That is honestly what I do on a regular basis. I had answered someones post about a tow rig and this is what I use. I was just telling them that the car has a ton of power, and when I am not towing it gets great mileage.

I usually don't reply unless I personally know what I am talking about.

If you have any questions about me or my hobbies, please ask. I will be glad to answer them.

I have done that too, before I got my trailer.  Not behind a caddy, but behind my pickup.  Flat towing it.  I see old farts pulling Jeeps, cars, and even a few suburbans/Tahoes behind campers going down the interstate at 70 mph.

Where did all this come from.  W7, I sense an overly high level of animosity, directed nowhere.  That's hardly ever seen on this forum(with the exception of an isolated TITAN, or a rather large tiff between Samurai_Hampster and myself a while back).  This just isn't the place for it.  Even if there is poor advice given somewhere on this forum, there are way more people who know what they are talking about to negate that.  Please try to be a bit more civil towards the "community" if possible.  We all get along real well here, because we, for the most part, are polite and respectful of one another.  Which is why I started this thread, to encourage everyone to come out and get together at Zuwharrie.  I'll do it again for Paragon, Zukimelt, etc because I think it's great that a bunch of folks with a common interest can get together a couple times a year and have fun.  I understand that every so often one needs to vent about something and that's cool.  But don't post that in an unrelated topic, my thread >:(, about how I hope more people that I converse back and forth with on the site will come out and wheel next week at Zuwharrie.  You must have some interest yourself if you opened the topic in the first place ;).  Start your own thread if you feel like griping.  So, just go ahead and vent for a bit...for now, just try to keep it more positive in the future, OK man :D

P.S.: Flat towing at highway speeds is perfectly safe, if undertaken properly.  And a large caddy IS capable of towing a Sammi. ;D
