I had one on the old SOB for fun for the kids...and it helped them with geography and associating all the stuff they learned along the way. They're all grown up and out now. I'll skip the map and just wander around bumping into things as I go (NOT literally!) How does it go?.....I'll know where I am when I get there.

No is the short answer. I have been preparing comments on proposed state health dep't regulations for backwash ponds and other "impoundments" on behalf of our small water company. This is my reward for volunteering for the water company board. Maybe I'll get a plaque some day which I can exchange for senior citizen medications needed after serving on the board for years and years.

This experience (and others doing similar things although I used to get paid for it) has obviously twisted a mind already in a precarious state (49 states actually).

Remember to get the map, you must file an map application with the Dep't of Homeland Security. You will have to explain why you want a map which may include secret locations of secrets. You will also be "patted" down. I choose to be patted down by the youngest, prettiest TSA woman employee. I've always wondered if when people take their belts off, do their pants fall down? This will expedite the pat down.

Now…what was I doing?

AH, someone who UNDERSTANDS! Isn't the Health Dept. FUN! (my apologies to anyone who works for one of these entities, but REALLY). I'm sure what you are dealing with is similar to what I deal with!

Perhaps it's time to do something useful today.

Gosh Gene,

I sure hope so! Last time I looked all my T-shirts, caps, and underwear for that matter were from China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, or somewhere that I've never been.

I really don't think anyone wants me wandering around without my clothes from places I've never been.

As for the map, I lean toward where you've camped. I don't do a map myself, but if I did, I would not put on Virginia, Maryland, DC, or Michigan. I've spent quite a few nights in Virginia and DC, but the only aluminum involved belonged to Northwest or Delta. I would count Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas even though only the Trade Wind not the Excella has been there. Therefore, my answer is that I would not restart for a new trailer.
