    I can see Simon, E-Man and a few others, driving on sidewalks and Interstates wreaking havoc on the United States.

    "Run Americans, run ... save yourselves !!" LOL

    Maybe we can get E-Man to drive one of those Cadillac Escalades, or Simon & Angharad, a GMC Yukon. Big as some those H.M.S. ships.

    We've hired a "Standard SUV" ... should be able to tag quite a few pedestrians on each straffing run with that.

    I fancied the Cadillac Escalades because I wanted to see if it drove like in Midtown Madness 3 (XBox)

    It will be hilarias to see you Brits driving. Remember E-man how I would gasp when you drove down those narrow roads (on the wrong side of the street for me!!!) I'll be watching HL to see her reaction!!

    Wow Simon, are you sure you can handle one of our "standard SUV's?" Even your trailors and motorhomes are cute little barbie doll size things.

    The party is growing!! Can't waitl

    btw, E-man, you can put the tip on the Credit Card, but most people like cash because <lowering voice to a wishper> they don't have to report it.

    Yeah ... driving over there is a piece of cake - the roads are so big you have to try really hard to hit someone and we're used to driving much faster here - try going less than 90Mph on a Motorway when it's busy!

    We've had an SUV in Canada (I know, a bit less traffic) so hopefully we'll be ok and we're used to driving on the wrong side of the road - you guys should really get in line with us and drive on the right side (which is really the left).

    Now, if it's fear you want ... just watch me when Angharad gets in the driving seat !! (just kidding, she's very good)

    I've been told I'm not to try and pick up any women while I'm over there ... I think she meant giving lift's

    I've done some shopping around for car rentals.

    About $140 for 1 week,

    $100 refundable deposit

    Plus a tank of juice!

    The insurance arrangements are quite different to the UK where third party liability is unlimited. What sort of charge will be made if I buy car insurance over there in the US?

    Any other surprises?

    Thank you!

    Englishman.

    Sometimes this means that you have to bring it back full OR they charge you their price for gas (which may be more than the regular price). It's often very convenient though.

    Pretty good price!

    I still can't get my head around this insurance thing. Maybe I'm getting decrepit. Ron, the landlord of the pub, went to the US last year and thought that he had paid for everything related to the car rental in advance. He had to pay an extra sum - not sure how much - for the compulsory insurance.

    "compulsory insurance." ??

    If your credit card will cover the insurance of an auto rental, check with your credit card company, or your own car insurance covers ANY vehicle you drive, then you don't need the insurance the car rental place tries to sell ya. They give you this song and dance that if you have an accident with their insurance it won't show up on your policy at home and thus your rates won't go up.

    Do what you are comfortable with or can afford.

    Simon,

    you guys should really get in line with us and drive on the right side (which is really the left).

    Yeah, you Brits drive on the 'right' side of the road. And we Americans say "NO, YOUR OTHER RIGHT". The REAL RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD.

    Right is Right. Left is WRONG! You and South Africa are against the world on this left side driving issue. Big hint.

    As to the debate between you and Eman about driving a Semi vs driving a house, when you get here I will let you have a ride in Catapillar Deisel powered house on a Semi chassis. Not science fiction, it's real here in America. Fasten your seat belts.
