The right thing to do i thought . ok well i like to go camping , my kind of camping is in my 36ft motorhome , have a ski boat . and all i used in the summer time when i had 5 weeks a year vac. time .. ha ha last year i went camping 1 weekend , boat on the lake maybe 5 or 6 times . i was working bout 15 hours a day 6 days aweek . well I HAVE TO MAKE THIS BUSINESS WORK .
