Another thing that we have noticed in our travels that makes our experiences seem a departure from the norm, is that we have never been ripped-off. Most everyone can tell a story about how they have been “taken” for auto repair, tires, or some other thing. To date, when we have experienced troubles, on the road, we have been treated with the honesty and consideration that one would expect, from people with whom we had delt for years. Perhaps I look like a “country bumpkin” and people feel sorry for me. If so, I will keep it up. I always say “don’t fight success”.
