March is a bitter sweet month for the Jones family. Winter is ending and the rains are coming to feed the rivers we love to padddle. My wife, college basketball's number one fan, begins her most obsessive season of the year by bracketing away into the wee hours of the morning. All is pleasant until the weekend. Then we must decide what to do.
Option Number One - Stay home and watch awesome March Madness basketball on TV.
Option Number Two - Camp out on some muddy river bank, sleep on the ground and hit the river (any river) first thing in the morning while the light is still magical.
Both of us want to go to Heavan, but neither of us wants to die! However, last night I think we may have found the perfect technology to end our conflict. For the paltry sum of $15 (actually $23 including tax and shipping) we hope to restore the environment of peace and love that fills our home in every month except March. Of course the technology I speak of is the $15 Camping TV: Coby CX-TV1 5" Black-and-White TV with AM/FM Tuner
Maybe I'm just behind the times, but WOW! When did they start making $15 dollar portable TV's? The one we sent off for comes with several different power sources, batteries, A/C, Car or boat! The cute little guy takes video game inputs, is an FM radio and should be the perfect addition to our tent camping arsenol. Frankly, I will feel a little safer being able to access local weather radar on the occasions we get caught out in some of Oklahoma's more exciting weather.
Sorry to do a whole post on an Amazon.com ad, but I am just too amazed. A $15 dollar TV, brand new...what a world!
