Let us know Pistonpete and thank you SnakeyXT.
Its good to think outside the square...more fun too! ;D

i'm a salesman and have often had the same thoughts when travelling the 'Garden Route' here in SA.  In every town there are tons of holiday homes that are only occupied a fraction of the year.  hell, i would be happy to clean a pool or two for free lodgings  ;D
