We understand, really we do. Just didn't want y'all getting away without a proper farewell.

On another note, Mary told her sister, the antique chinaware dealer, about your sale and she plans on being there. She deals in all types of glassware!

Beverly,
In all circumstances you want to elevate yourself off of the ground, like hammock idea. Ground is anything the body/bedding would touch the ground or bed of truck. I can gurantee you that the steel bed of a truck will suck the warmth right out of a mountain sleeping bag. Same thing with mother Earth. Don't ask me how I know all these things, but one think for sure, I'm smarter than you know who!

LOL! I had considered a platform bed, which would be easy to build. Space in my 6"2" bed is the biggest issue. Once I get the cap installed, I will put in a puzzle-type home-depot mat on the floor and bed walls, (with velcro on the walls,) and construct a frame for the hammock. I do not really want to drill into the fiberglass cap, or put much stress on it either. The frame will also permit easier hanging of other stuff. The diagonal hanging I think is the best way to go. Nice thing about the hammock is that they are so easy to hang/un-hang. The bevel of the rear door would also make a platform bed difficult to raise out of the way.

There is a complete set of china for 12, inc 2 suze bowls, 3 size plates for each place setting... circa 1965 bought when my uncle was R&R in Japan.... plus bowls, platters, gravy etc....

Thanks Mary

Bev, the newer cap clamps work a treat. Installed properly they should not come undone.

Me too. Perhaps an RVM ID badge? An Emblem of Mutant Ingenuity?

I sense an award in the offing. But, oh, wait! You might be biased, eh?

A biased award? Hmmm...
Well, Iíve always been partial. Partially biased on the important stuff, like Bacon and and Nothing.
TFEBMA? The first ever biased Mutant award? (Sound of Mutant wheels turning)
Hmmmm

OK, I see a lot of odd things on Live PD (A&E), but tonight is one of the better ones - a turtle on a leash

It's on a porch and the cop came buy to take it out of the water bucket and clip the leash back on it. He called in dispatch and told them to timestamp that it's out of the water, has food and shelter.

The things ya see on the TV...

I'll Tell Bob hello.

Beverly, I used old blue foam sleeping bag mats for the back of my truck... too hard crawling around in there on my knees...never thought about the jigsaw puzzle type...but have used those inside a tent before...

Sounds like you have a plan and are working the plan!

Bev, those puzzle mats frequently go on sale at Harbor Freight for $5.99 with a coupon. You can sign up to get the coupons via email.

Tractor supply has barn stall matts simular to what your talking about but more durable. Probably more expensive but another option.

We always had a large rug in back. Much easier to just take it out to shake and clean. Did I read you mentioned an igloo? I borrowed a Yeti while at the lake and I'm sold on them or those made similar. Truly held ice considerably longer, and in 100* weather.
