That's one thing I need to ask him.  I am not sure he needs to drive and connect.  It may be park and connect.  I will find out.

I am doing the same thing for the county Mobile Command Center.  They take it to a disaster, park and connect.  I am still working on that one, but there are not a lot a disasters in our area, so the first one was free.
