At last week's Michigan get-together I still managed to read two (Kindle) paperbacks, listen to some short wave and watch the Olympics (I seem attracted to women's beach volleyball but I can't quite seem to put my finger on why ).
Thats strange Steve---Thats all i watched also. The rest didn't interest me.

15 inch Sharp LCD. Analog, so out it must go.

I heard that the IOC has decreed sweatsuits for beach volleyball in the next Olympics. I'll probably be too busy flossing (or something like that) to watch it.

We do what a number of posters here do, bring the laptop for DVDs for bad weather.

It's fun to stop at Canadian Tire for new lantern mantels, say, or yet more tarp straps, then dig through the bargain bin and get a triple-feature Boris Karloff or double-feature Arnold Schwarzenegger for $4.99 and bring them along.

The laptop only has two hours battery power, so we bring an extension cord and use a 12-to-120 volt inverter to plug into truck. Someone (!) has to go out into the rain at Intermission to start up the truck so we don't have a dead truck battery. But we learned you can meet the nicest campers, those who carry jumper cables even in summer, and don't mind positioning their vehicle halfway up a mountain to help you out!

When it rains, the TV/DVD player is really nice to have. Also, when I got sick on a trip in April, I didn't feel like doing anything but lying in bed & watching TV. It helped distract me from my misery and the incessant rain. I hope that never happens again! yuck

We have a little 12 volt, 9" flat-screen DVD player (no TV channel tuner) that's designed to be a seat-back DVD player. It came with a swing-arm mount that was supposed to allow the user to clamp the TV to the two posts of a front-seat headrest (so the kids in the back can watch TV), but we used the mount to clamp the TV to the metal supports for our kitchen cabinet.

Got it a year ago at Walmart for about $99. It's not a great TV, but we don't watch much TV when we're out and about, either.

Joy, I like your shelving system/entertainment center. Do you leave the flat screen TV standing up like that while you're on the road? I was just wondering whether you have it attached in the back or something. We're thinking about getting a new TV for the Bigfoot at some point, but things seem to get bumped around a bit in our trailer while traveling so we wouldn't want the TV to break. Thanks.

No, the TV, DVD player & Sat box all get disconnected and placed on the bed while traveling.
Are you coming to the NOG in October?? If so you can see my setup there.

No TV. Better to spend some time and scrounge a couple of yard salesalong the way and pick out some pocket novels.
