Goodbye Jayco, Hello Miata convertible
Well, we finally did it. Sold our 2010 Jayco G2 29RLS and tow vehicle. Replaced them with a Mazda Miata convertible with a power retractable hard top.
Due to some health issues (none life threatening) it became harder and harder for us to hook up the trailer, tow it and set it up. Also the trips we were planning (Blue Ridge Parkway, California coastal highway, Alaska, Glacier NP, etc.) did not involve the trailer. I will still take our young grandsons tent camping in nearby state parks until I am too old or infirm or they are too grown up and won't want to be seen with Granddad--we all know how kids tend to distance themselves from adults during the teenage years.
I plan to continue contributing to the Owners' Forum but as an "emeritus" member--always wanted to be an emeritus of something anyway.
Love the Miata. Had a 1991 Miata Special Edition in British Racing Green a few years ago and enjoyed it. The new Miata is a bit more powerful, has better handling characteristics and more creature comforts. The new one is Galaxy Gray Mica with an automatic transmission that can be shifted manually--also has paddle shifters on the steering wheel. It will be great in Central Texas during the Fall, Winter and Spring but clearly the top will be up and the A/C running full blast during the Summer.
