I was waiting in line to dump and the guy got out what looked like his drinking water hose, hooked up to the water supply and rinsed his dump line with it. Me and my wife were thinking WTF. I thought maybe he was just using his old hose for the purpose. Than he proceeded to fill his fresh water tank.

Travel Card

Almost did this this winter and forgot. After reading this post, I order them. Cost about $19 delivered for 250 cards.

Here is what ours look like (sorry I blotted out some the names etc):

I LIKE your card !
For those of you considering this...you might go to
Shutterfly website...the site offers business cards/photo books/cards/mugs..
I use their services often..they are fast and efficient and often have some 50% off deals.
I AM NOT AN AGENT OR SALESPERSON FOR SHUTTERFLY

vkb - thanks. Vistaprint is where we got ours. I am completely retired and want zero business interest in any company. But Vistaprint sure did the make the cards easy. Paid a little more for our personalized pic.

PS: We've wintered in Key West now for a couple of years. I listen to some the KW music we have by local entertainers. The DW tells me my head is still in KW. Thus the rolling surf.

Thanks for the reply. I like your background on the card. I am in the midst of creating my card..like the challenge.

'doing' the Keys is on our bucket list. When our family lived in the Ft. Lauderdale area, we knew it would happen sooner than later, then, they moved to central FL, and the drive to south FL doesn't seem to happen.

vkb - We have traveled to all 50 states and a many of the Canadian provinces. My two favorites places are Kodiak and the Florida Keys. The raw beauty of nature and the pace of living in both places.

Good Morning ... We have been to Alaska via a cruise and only to Vancouver and Victoria Island. Looking forward to next summer traveling across the eastern portion of Canada and Nova Scotia then down into the New England States which are about the only States untouched by us !
We both appreciate the wilderness and 'getting away' !!

We have designed and ordered custom cards online from VistaPrint for years. You can make the background a photo of your RV, or turn it 90 degrees and put the photo on top and contact info on the bottom. Or, photo on one side and info on back.

It's super easy, and there is a customer service number to call if you need help. There are countless templates, too.

Traveling folks with a home base might want to simply include names, phone and email, for security reasons. We have friends that don't like to give out their home address.

I have a template in a software package and card stock..I will create my own cards and run a small # .. the price is right, but 500 cards is a bit many for me !
I have used VistaPrint for business cards for a number of years. They do good work.

Recently saw a guy emptying his black water tank. It looked like he was very careful hooking every thing up but it seems he didn't properly secure the end going into the dump tank. He opened his black water tank all at once and you know the rest! Yuk. Lesson learned, I am sure. I'll bet he makes sure he secures the end next time. The hose was whipping around making a mess. It was hard not to laugh...
