Re: You're gonna think we're nuts..

I still spend a fair few nights a year sleeping in a tent. Too tough to get my 19 down a river, or along a hiking trail.

But you couldn't crunch the numbers to get your bang for the buck..even is gas doubled in 5 years time it didn't really make sense economically. I did like them, but for us the cost didn't justify the mileage gains..

Re: You're gonna think we're nuts..

Got a little update on our RV..

Since our space was limited, we couldn't pick up the Itasca Impulse 24v until we sold our other trailer and they came to pick it up. We'll be hopefully picking it up next week and be doing a show on it, once we get it in it's little pad (which will be fun..)

There's a whole story behind it and it's probably easier to share it via a quick video rather than me typing away..

Anyway Happy New Years!

Oh..by the way.. Stanford plays VT on Monday night.. poor Dan as his beloved Hookies are in trouble.
