How cool that I'm getting comments!

We got to see tow houses in Ely yesterday. That's a really neat town and I would like to live there. BUT it was over 30 minutes drive to the base, and that's our limit. The first house was a huge 5 bedroom, with a whirlpool tub, built in bookshelves, etc. But in addition to the drive time, it was a little crummy. Mold in the bath, carpet torn, kitchen cabinets unmatched.

I drove yesterday! Just from the Taco bell/shoppette to the apartment, but it was a big first step.
Bob went wrong side of the street once yesterday. The oncoming car just stopped and waited for him to move back over. I hollered. "no! No! Wrong side!!!" and the he moved. He should have got it on the first "no!"

He's back with more houses to consider.

lol. We drive on that side BUT the continent (some of it anyway) drives your side & that's when we had trouble.

I wondered how it was down there. Thanks for sharing.

Seeing as I've only been driving for a little over a year, I don't think it would be that hard to switch over to the left side. Now driving with the wheel on the right would be tricky.

Marline, not only the wheel on the right, but everything else is reversed as well. In the rental van Bob kept trying to signal with his windshield wipers. ha. And when you have a standard you reach out with the right hand to shift, only to find the door latch. (We had a right hand drive standard for awhile in Iceland.)
