Just packing the Focus up, it's coming like it or not, and wanted to make sure everyone checks TIRE PRESSURE!! with all the temp changes my rear tires had 10psi. :(

Also don't forget Talkabouts!!! :thumbsup:

Motorola Talkabout. Little 2-way radios. I have an extra one I can loan ya'll for the cruise with everyone from HEB. :thumbsup:

Thats what I thought, but wasn't sure. If nobody else needs your spare, I suppose we could use it. How far do those things reach?

I have an extra for anyone who needs it...the package says they are good for 3 miles. However, I have my doubts.

3 miles on the salt flats maybe ;)

1 to 2 miles...though I'm sure you can keep up in the '03. I'll be the one in trouble with my 2.0L V4 with 180hp. :(

from experience, the Talkabouts 3 miles goes to @#$#@ in the Hill Country, we always have problems with the line of cars on the cruise hearing each other from the front of the line to the back. People always have to relay info.

I never understand anything being spoken into the Talkabouts. It's like someone's gotta put their lips on the walkie talkie. Annunciating and placing the Talkabout a few inches away from the grill is a good idea.:D

HINT: Try not to swallow the Talkabout when trying to speak into it.:o :rotf:

Excellent weather for the cruise.
