Well folks, I camp pretty decadently- full-size bed with four poster frame 
and curtains, rugs, occasional tables, trunks, candelabra, washstand, and 
sometimes my pre-dieu. The pavilion is 12x16 up, no guys. The kitchen goes 
up under the dayshade out back- full service, water, stove, coolers, 
tables, and dishwashing assembly. Could be my old days of playing Tetris, 
but I can fit all of that into an 82 Volvo wagon. With room for a passenger 

Oh- almost forgot- there's a 9-foot spear on the roof, too...

Now what I _really_ need is a sedan chair and a fleet of good-looking slave 
boys to tote me around site! (oy, especially the Coronation site last 
month, where no matter where you go, it's UPHILL!) And someone to wave a 
big feathered fan in my direction, and someone to bring me tasty treats. :-)

Must go now- my favorite Cabana Boy is due into town any minute!

else is more important than fear.   --Ambrose Redmoon
