Gringo, wouldn't it be kind of difficult digging out those pads that are either concrete or asphalt? ;-)

Legos Rule!!

Yeah, you're right. I'm going to have to add a chisel and a three pound hammer to the tool box for the concrete that isn't level, and maybe a blowtorch for the bitumen?

Wow. I have the yellow blocks (bought them for the B190), and was planning to switch to wooden boards for the trailer. Maybe we should reconsider!

We did manage to snap one in half, though, but I don't remember how it happened (it involved the weight of the B190, I know that much). It still works fine, we're just careful where we use it.

not too sure how many of the SP and other RV parks would like people digging holes in their sites.

i really can't see myself travelling the countryside digging holes at campsite parking spots.

also- some AS's have 1, some 2 tires per side.

wouldn't want to step into a hole in the dark.

besides - this sounds way too much like 'work' and we all know how much we want to avoid that!

like many others - i carry 1 or 2 bags of the orange legos - easy to pack, easy to use.
