Xmas gift idea

Struggeling for ideas for DW and think I found a good one. 36 x 48 inch US map! Will mount on cork or some kind of fiber board for wall mount. Then she can use push pins to mark places we have camped and visited for all to see.

You might want to look at something more substantial like a Kindle...I'm thinking it would be a tad better received

How about a good leg lamp, maybe a new vacuum cleaner?

Sorry, I couldn't resist. You might want to rethink that one. I am one that doesn't mind something for the RV but...

Maybe if you included diamond push pins she might be happier

That's an idea Hondo. She can use them on the voodoo doll in his likeness..

I'd LOVE this gift...as long as it came with an empty wall in the new motorhome.

Merry Christmas!

We just bought a Kindle Fire for one of the grandkids birthdays this Saturday. I can't wait to try it out!

I like the idea for me. For her that would go over about the same as insisting that she always use the campground potty instead of the one in the coach. I'm just not brave enough to do that.

OP Here. Guess I better say more next time. Map is not main gift, just stocking stuffer class. Intended for stick house and more for memories when RV driving days are over. It will go with the scrapbooks she has been building on places visited and campgrounds. Since she dosn't read here, I can list gifts so far: map discussed above, 9x12 patio mat for camping, 48 pack assortment of Keurig coffee pods, Wii console sports bundle (she loves the bowling ) with dance and fit programs if she wants - later, and the big one 51 inch plasma TV for stick house, and yes it is mostly hers as TV puts me to sleep. Got permisssion to order my own - RVND 7710 I'm a happy camper.

You had us worried there. Yes, that would be nice. I have to settle for my stick on map as we don't live in a house any longer. Sounds like you have got her well taken care of. Merry Christmas.
