Well, a ZAP is a little 3 wheeled electric vehicle. And given that we have a lot of readers who are RV'ers, we thought one of you might be interested in a different kind of tow vehicle, or even something a little better than a typical golf cart that some of you might use at your RV resorts down south.
And we know where there's one for sale!
How's this for different!

Can you picture yourself zipping around in a ZAP? Too funny.
When we were couchsurfing with Cheryl and Mike in Albuquerque last month, we walked through her garage one day and of course this little car kind of stood out! So I asked her about it, and she said it was for sale. It's a 2008 model with only 5,090 miles on it. Cheryl is the original owner and the only driver.
Of course there are limitations to a vehicle like this. It has a top speed of about 40 mph (70 km/h) and a range of about 25 miles (40 kms). So for everyday driving it's not very realistic. But as a tow vehicle, or for zipping around an RV resort, I think it would be perfect. It plugs in to any 120V outlet and recharges overnight. Neat, huh? I bet it gets more stares than a Ferrari!
If you want more info, you can contact Cheryl at "cd.garcia at comcast.net". She's asking $4,500.
Things continue to progress here at the campground. We know now that we'll be 95% ready for the campers to arrive for the long weekend that starts tomorrow evening. Anything not ready are things that are not that important and can wait until next week when most people have gone home.
We borrowed a rotor-tiller attachment for our little tractor and so I got the beach sand tilled and harrowed. The sand looks and feels much nicer now and the beach is ready for the kids to play on this weekend.
Fishing season officially opened yesterday, and we had a few die hards that had to get on the lake the first day. One of our (Kevin's!) duties is to look after the fish cleaning shack. That entails dumping the entrails! When it gets busier, I have to empty the fish guts bucket, probably three times a day. It's pretty disgusting!
Another blue sky day....we've been doing really good with the weather!
