Nephew on wifeys side is a Marine, just got back from Iraq and is about to leave to go back to California. He wants to take his new 1/2 ton truck and TOW his girlfriends Expedition behind it 1600 miles! He has NEVER even towed a trailer before....let alone a vehicle. I tried to convince him that the potential for an accident (in 1600 miles) was pretty great. I advised that he have it shipped, or wait until they can fly back and pick up the expedition later. Told him it was a lousy way to break in his new truck also. So far, nothing doing! Youthful ingnorance. If it was on my side of the family I would just whup the hell out of him, tell him NO, and hand him the money to get it shipped. Kids!!!!!!!!!!
