Ferb the Burb
So, while we were leaving Big Bend, we were talking about our Chevrolet Suburban and how well it is doing, pulling us all over the country – especially after it received its replacement battery and had some work done (more needed, it spent Thursday in the garage and will go back next week due to unavailability of a part). We decided it needed a name. On the forums, our truck is generally referred to as a ‘burb’, quite a number of people with larger families tow with one. One of the kids’ favorite shows of the moment, which we are also able to tolerate, is Disney’s ‘Phineas and Ferb’, they’re step-brothers, Ferb is English. It just seemed appropriate that we named our Burb, Ferb, and therefore, the camper became Phineas – so now we travel and live in: Phineas and Ferb!
