When I say heavy travel, I mean the necessities I lug around from hotel to hotel. It used to be a suitcase. Now it's the suitcase, garment bag, laptop, printer, large case for books, my personal latte maker, cell and charger. To make matters worse, soon I will have the 7000 and books. Now I think I'll take the TV/VHS combination because I just purchased Alec's video.

Just be glad it's not the 'good ol days' of lugging a Hammond up 2 flights of stairs for a 2 night gig

I see your occupation is:
Outside Sales - Piano Division
I would guess your territory may be 1 or 2 states and you get home often.
When I was in Business in Seattle, I traveled several countries for many years living out of 2 suitcases and a very large briefcase. I carried a small portable typewrite. There were no cell phones, computers, keyboards or anything to ungloom life on the road. Yes there were a few distractions here and there.
I did not keep a home at all as I was single and never got back to Seattle more then once a year, if that, for a few days to work on whatever problems could not be resolved from the field.
The only real advantage that I recall was that the airlines lost my luggage often enough that I always had new suits and clothes
I had to do my practicing on bar room pianos those days and usually could sit in with most any band playing by just asking after telling them how I lived on the road.
I am thinking that you have it a lot better now days then I had in the late 50's and 60's.
Best to you

So, Bill, if you fly enough within your beautifull country and started with an KN800 in your luggage, finally you could be happy to end with a KN7000, on charge of the airlinescompagnies
