Small business owner weighing in .....
Publicly recognizing your people for a job well done is an excellent marketing tool and an awesome motivator. But Marcus is right - at the end of the day the buck stops with him.
I would enjoy learning/reading about employee accomplishments. It implies longevity and passion. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how many employees (not necessarily at CW) aren't fans of their chosen industry. I encourage and help my employees to buy and use as much home theater gear as possible and they are passionately opinionated. I've been in RV dealerships where none of the salesmen were RVers themselves.
I watch and enjoy The Profit, although it does seem like businesses are chosen for the amount of drama they bring to the table. It would be refreshing to see just one business that was completely cooperative. However, I have over 10 episodes back logged on the DVR, so maybe there's one in there somewhere.
As to the original question - maybe less Marcus isn't necessary, but add in more personal, local interest.
Ditto on the yellow lego-type things. Much lighter and they fit nicely into a little space in the belly box. Plus, in between camping trips it's less likely that someone will come along and say "ah, there a piece of scrap wood I can use." Some of these state parks in Texas require 2-3 high on one side.
In the truck, on the floorboard behind the front seat. The fifth-wheel would be pretty cramped with all the slides in - the only place she could be would be the bathroom or half of the bedroom. And it would be hot. I don't think she would be very happy back there. Plus, we stop often and stretch our legs.
Oak Thicket Park, an LCRA park near Fayetteville, TX. It's a small park, only 20 RV sites. Some of them are a bit tight, and not all that level. There is water and both 30 amp and 50 amp, no sewer (dump station in park). Very rustic. A hiking trail and apparently some good fishing. Big patch of bluebonnets right next to our site was a big bonus.
This is site #1
The Fayetteville power plant uses the lake for cooling.
Lovely bluebonnets in the park this time of year!
Having had bumper pull also for more than 15 years or so then switching to the "big" rig... It is different - not harder, just different. Find a big parking lot and practice.
When turning the rig follows differently so watch those right hand turns.
Backing up is where the big difference to me has been. Turns in reverse are slower to react, but once the rig starts to react to the turn it then turns faster. Smaller turns to the back end require larger turns on the TV. Not sure I am describing it properly but if you have the back end pointing left backing in from the right and you want to change the direction of the back end to be pointing right, you need to get the direction of the TV to get past straight alignment with the rig, i.e. pointing to the left.
The adjustment has taken a little while but again not hard, just different. Also watch the height, at 13'3" we are very high and need to always keep that in mind.
