I look forward to reading your blog on the industry's latest attempt to keep poo off of our shoes. I have tried other inventions but they all seem to produce the same results for me. Good video on utube provides some optimism. Jim

I'll blog in the next week or two and let you know how we get on; due to renovation work in the house, we're camping on the driveway and I'm going to need to pump the grey tank out up a slight incline so I'll let you know if I get my shoes wet. The black tank will have to go to the local Provincial Park to be dumped, though, so we'll have to be careful in our habits I think.

A good point, well made!

It's open all year round (Rondeau), although the campground doesn't open until the end of the month. The dump station is not on the campground so I'm hoping that with the prospect of $12.50 in their register that they'll let me use it. If not then it's the truck stop in London or we're going to have to go to pub for our essential requirements (or the neighbours, which might be easier).

Well, good to hear that you have a plan, AND a backup.

Not pleasant to be full up, with nowhere to go!

enter "warm white 1141 LED" in Ebay search to find these for about $5.-
If I would include a link it would be invalid soon.

As an example, here's one for $2.75 delivered: click here Of course, this is a bidding auction,not a "fixed price"one, so it could go up.

I'm only posting this to show a good current value. As Peter said, you are better off to do the search, because links come and go.

Got these gray roller blinds at IKEA for $19.00 each. Great for glare and contrast with the off white speckled walls.
A pendent light over the dinette with a red LED
Bulb for atmosphere. $19.00 on clearance at HD.

Also a new mortise security bolt for the front door for $40.

Hmm, is this a trick question , like how many LE(a)D singers does it take to unscrew a light bulb? (Just 1, because they think the world turns around them ...)
Jokes aside, my 34' took 34, just on the inside, no tail lights. Just the lights around the mirror in the bathroom took 6 and the main dome light took 6 as well.
