A DTV RF remote is one. No cabinet is large enough for the receiver to lay flat and use the IR remote so it's mounted vertical inside a cabinet.

The other is an electric fly swatter/zapper. I was very skeptical of this $5 HF item but it really does make it much easier to eliminate the pests. I also have one at home and I got them for the kids. Goodby bugs.

Dunno about strange, but I always carry a little 5" SCT telescope, photo tripod, and eyepieces. When I go stargazing, I use the camper to haul my 8" SCT or 10" SN 'scopes with tripod, go-to mount, accessories, and battery. Did that just last night, still got to unload it this AM.

I've also hauled a compound microscope to Florida for a shuttle launch, so I could look at swamp water micro-beasties while killing time waiting on the launch. What you can find living in a drop of water is truly amazing.

And yep, I too carry a folding travel iron, and I've even used it.

A Night Scope. It's fun to sit in camp at night and see what type of wildlife is wandering around.

My ol lady.

I tired to leave her home several times but she out ran the TV; hopped on in and beat me silly for trying to do that.

I don't do that anymore. I just yell load up and she comes a running.

I don't have anything 'strange'.......or at least not to me.

When I read that, I thought "Oh, a rope/block and tackle type fence stretcher like I have a couple of. VERY handy item."
Then I clicked on the link. That IS strange! What do you use it for?

Well, if it doesn't have the improved Sprague hook, I just can't understand why you're haulin' it around.
