I remember a distant post by one of the Jim's, ---ah, was it you?-- I forget which, bantering about needing to sleep facing the door in his 19 as a protective, defensive hedge in case of a home invasion. That might be why we do it.

Inside. Wishing my cable connected to a recepticle on the wall on the other side of the stove. The outside plug is on the street side but that's fine with me because the cable will run from it to the antenna across the spare tire thereby also serving as a tie-down in case it gets windy at a campsite.

Two Tv's Donna? Tsk tsk.

Yeppers. And music that will make your ears ring. Anybody, besides me, listen to WAR or the Moody Blues on cassete tapes?

Not sure if the album came out on 8 track that year but the 8 track was invented in 1964.

I have a bunch of those too, because I have two cars with 8-track players . But, those are too bulky to carry in my small-ish trailer.

Moody Blues, certainly -- it's on my regular play list. WAR, sure, but I don't own any. Cassette tapes, no. Unfortunately magnetic media does degrade with time. Do your tapes still sound good? Even back in the day I'd give up on them after a few years and re-record them.

I'm less fussy about sound quality now than I used to be, but I still like my music to sound good. Pops and cracks in vinyl always bothered me, too. I switched to digital media as soon as I could.

Yeah, that moment of infamy was brought to you by yours truly. Bears too though, I want to be able to get a good picture as they come through the door at night too.

TV. Some must have it, and others not. We have two cable outlets, one curbside by the bed, and the other at the dinette for laptop use. Only once in five years did we watch TV on the laptop for an hour, and that is it. I don't even have a clue where my laptop tuner is now. Might probably look into it more when travelling longer, or using hookups more. Different strokes, for different folks.

Speaking of recording tape, I bought a DVD recorder and transferred all my video tapes of family events to DVD. Several of them had great chunks of oxide missing resulting in no picture.
I expect the same thing can happen to cassette and 8-track tapes, especially if not stored "in a cool, dry place".
