Winnebago Winners in Reverse
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Good morning. I'm John Ydstie.
Pop in your hearing aids and pack up your meds. Just three days left in this year's Winnebago Itasca Travelers Grand National Rally. The event draws thousands of motor home owners each year to Forest City, Iowa. The highlight is an obstacle course where contestants drive their RV's in reverse, blindfolded, and guided only by a voice on the radio. Careful, Hazel, the coffee's still on the stove. This is MORNING EDITION.
