I tried mine on the ceiling first but am too blind to read any of it so I cut it down to size for my wall (sorry Texas, Louisiana, and Florida). Thanks for such a great idea for a mapophile such as I, Scott!

Great idea Karen, but what about a roll up map, like the old blinds? That way you could see Texas - Texas is important ....

Yah, they conducted a poll and 110% of Texans agreed.

That's a good idea, too. It could be mounted above the rear dinette and pulled down over the rear window. But the stick-on-the-wall map was easier for me, and the odds of me even getting the trailer below the 40th parallel north are slim to none.

My Latest Modification

This is for the benefit of denjess.

At the Spring NOG in Waterloo, Dennis and Jessica, and Debbie and I had just picked up our Escapes in Chilliwack. It was raining a bit in Waterloo, and Dennis had yet to install the wrap-around mat to his entrance step. On our second day at the NOG, Dennis installed the mat, and we all toasted "His First Mod" to his 19.

Like many others on this forum, we use a wooden clothespin to hold the stove vent flap open for ventilation. A great idea! Today, as my latest mod, I replaced the clothespin with this white plastic potato chip bag clip. It blends in so good, I'll probably forget to remove it for travel. But Dennis, I hope you are proud!

Well, I think a plastic chip clip is way classier than a wooden clothes pin and is quite the mod.

Way to go, Steve!
