I can relate. It seems that when ever we go on some trip, I am always trying to enjoy it in a zombie state since I am so shot out from prepping for the trip. But what matters most to me is that the rest of the family has a good time.

Yeah, bling, for a normal weekend, that's how it is for me also. I live about 2 miles from a small lake. We just happened to make a road trip this weekend to meet my brother and his family (he has two RXDI's).
Nothing is worse than having something go wrong when your there and have no way to fix it. So I just have to pay the price up front so to speak
