The Owner's Directory on is about all there is. If 
you have not registered there please do so, then you'll be able to 
download the list. We do it this way to minimize the D-O-D being used 
as a marketing (i.e. spamming) tool.

A nice suggestion for the next version (Hi Ken) might be to add, at 
the back, the listing of Vendors and Club Contacts right off the website. This would certainly be handy for traveling.

There are several separate state groups, etc., but I'd like the most 
complete listing in North America, for a potential long road trip. 
Would it include the many suppliers we have and their contact numbers?

Interesting observation and a good directive about being sensitive to climate when making generalizations. I likewise have not had a cooling hose failure on a car in over 25 years, including some cars at over 10- years old and 150K miles. 

I have also heard that it's normal to wear out tires much faster in hot climates as well, I know at one point my brother and I had similar minivans and his average tire life in Florida was about 1/2 mine in Illinois under identical use.
