Finished planning out our route to Maine for this summer and searched for emergency road kits and then decided to make my own kit and on my second page of items to stock it with. (Dad taught me to always hope and pray for the best but prepare for the worst.)

Tomorrow, I'll place a large order with Amazon....my "wish list" is growing too fast!

Great thinking!

Thanks for the idea for the display. My wife(the BOSS) will thank you as well for not making me spend so much $$ on a new toy!

Got the Windjammer covered

Finally, they installed my carport to protect the Windjammer.

How did you attach it to the board or just glued it to the plastic cover?

It's in front of my detached 24 x 26 extra garage/work shop which has power. I ordered the carport Oct 18th 2014 seems like I waited forever.

Youroo, I had my Wildcat power washed to remove all off the salt from the trip down to Arizona.
Iowa was the worst because they were dumping de-icer on bare roads before Linus hit.
Clean again.
