Ready to Get Outside?

This article is two-fold, one have we got lakes? Heck yeah! Two lakes in our Franklin County Virginia. Smith Mountain Lake and Philpott Lake. We are called, after all, the land between the lakes! 
Secondly for those who moan and groan about those useless big trucks, well as you can see, in our family of four plus dog (which is not a big family btw), our truck is a necessity. This was just a day outing. Towing a boat, gotta have a truck! We could barely fit the two kayaks in the back of our ram until Tony got this roof rack. As he says "Works like a charm!"
