Vacs

Well, our thinking was a rechargeable stick vac would be handy when boondocking, but not sure about the power issue. The 1 gal shop vac is a good idea, had'nt thought about that. If there was some way to try a demo of a number of vacs, it would be easy to decide I bet.

Because of the small nozzle you can actually get around the gas /brake pedal etc.

I was thinking a stick vac would be too cumbersome (not so much weight as size).
looking at your signature you need to get out more
we have about 14 weeks so far this year
happy trails

HA Ha...you must mean the camping map? That is over many years, of course. Some of it was with backpacks and itty-bitty tents, but I figgered that counted, too.
We cant go right now...new Windjammer is taking way too long to build!!!

Retiring and going full time soon!!!

14 weeks...you are no slouch yourself!

Brian you are absolutely RIGHT!
We have little ones - and birthday parties in elementary school are a big deal. It seems like there is an even every single weekend between the three children. So now that the snow has melted (what was that 3 weeks ago?) and school will be out in another 10 days we'll hit the road!

The trip we did take... we found out the Georgetown will handle a fair bit of snow - slushy wet stuff at that.

Randy & Cheryl: You mean you aren't supposed to start a new camping map each year? I was feeling guilty for still having last year's up.
