Ok, I said I wouldn't do any more polls, but I wanted to try this one. I'm feeling "deja vu," so I am hoping I haven't done this poll on this forum, I know I did it on another forum.....

I carry paper plates, I try to buy recycled materials. I prefer the Chinet type, because they don't crumble easily when you are trying to cut your food.

I carry those harder plastic utensils that you can wash and reuse a couple times, then toss. I use paper cups.

I use this because of "weight." I am a "gadget" person, I have a lot of "never know when you could use this thing" gadgets in my RV.

My heavy "gadget" is my power station I bought from Costco. It weighs about 30 or 40 pounds, I can carry it, but not too far and not too long.... It's not an inverter, but if it's charged up, it can power up appliances up to 300 watts. It also has an air compressor so I can pum air in my RV tires. Plus, I carry a Red Cross radio that someone gave me, it has a crank on it, and you can get radio as long as you can "crank" it. Hey, never know..... I also carry some two-way radios, bought those at Costco. Hey, never know.... I carry paper plates to offset the weight of these interesting gadgets!
