Houseboat Lessons Learned

Debrief and After-Action Report
Dale Hollow Lake (KY/TN)
14 to 17 May 2009

  • If you pack more than two tee-shirts for a four-day excursion, you’re probably overplanning.
  • While we all love wheat bread, rye bread, Wonder Bread, pumpernickel, french bread, Kaiser rolls, sub rolls, hamburger buns, hot dog buns, and bagels – bringing 15 cubic feet of bread is just overkill.
  • A head-nod to “diversity” on the houseboat can be accomplished by having at least one Prius-driving vegetarian on board.
  • Late arrivals will suck hind teat on rack selection. A related lesson is that anyone who says “comfortable foldout bed” is already a liar.
