"I have the portable purifiers, for camping. Also a Steri-Pen, great little device. Purifies via Ultraviolet light. I can grab water from most any source and feel fine. I don't use the bottled water as I don't want to promote the use of…"

"To be honest, just cheap warehouse brand bottled water. The rationale makes sense, although there are purifiers these days if needed as you said and of course, the tried and true boiling method!"

"I've had many tell me NOT to drink the water from the RV. I understand their rationale. However, as a camper, I know how to purify my water. When using it often, do you bother with extra purification or just drink it from the tap?"

"I like the drive ability of the Class C over the A. Grew up driving a pick up truck and the C drives like I’ve to me. In the A (although the living space is nice) I didn’t ever feel like I was truly in control. One wrong pinky move and…"

"The reasons I desire the smaller size Toy Hauler: A) Parking B) Fuel economy - not that any of them are economical. C) I'm alone so I don't need much extra room for living quarters. D) Easier to maneuver. F) I have found when checking into…"

"LOL Key West used to be so laid back until the rich people took it over. Sorry if you’re rich, bitter taste in my mouth right now in that regard. Anyway, I actually like the BMW Touring Bike (not sure that’s the correct name) a lot. It…"

What are the best things about art fairs
Being outside; meeting new people and connecting with old friends. Seeing all the beautiful and varied items so many talented people create.
Best show ever and why
St Patrick’s Day Festival on Emerald Isle, NC. Close to home, friends around, laughter, food and drink.
Worst show ever and why
It was one I paid a lot to get into then bad weather was predicted. I knew it was non refundable but I kept asking if we should set up or not. I’m 59 yo and alone so it’s no small task for me to do. Anyway, they were adamant the show would go on. I started setting up the night before, finished early morning before opening, six plus hours total. 1/2 hour after opening they shut us down for high winds and lightening. Besides being livid, I was exhausted!!
