We carried the generator on the rear of our truck for the entire trip, never once re-moving it. But had we needed it, we would have had all the comforts of home, for a few days anyway.Being self contained has always fascinated me. When traveling this way, I feel a bit like a sailor on a small boat, crossing a vast ocean.

The sailor carries everything he needs, relying only on his wits to survive. It's a good way to travel, but it's easy to haul too much STUFF along.
