    arlon replied to a thread Home built truck camper in Our Town
    Few years back I considered trying to make a truck camper. Seemed within my skill range but in the end I found a nice AWD Astro van and have been using that for my road trip mobile ever since. I really like the van approach now. I'm into photography...

    Walking through walmart I noticed this little pill holder in the pharmacy department. It looked like the perfect size to fit some top punches I usually keep in a small jar. Well, I plunked down $0.99 each and got two of them. They work perfectly.
