Overland Park KS (Low 68 Partly Sunny High 94)

This is supposed to be the last day of the humid 90s for awhile, and maybe even for the rest of our stay but never, ever, discount the BWE effect.

From time to time we like to give tips on things that make our full-timing lifestyle a little easier. We use our Dyson vacuums a lot, yes I said vacuums. We first bought a handheld (DC34) and it has worked great.

We liked it so well we bought one with a beater head also cordless (DC35).

Dyson DC35 Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner

This vacuum can be used as shown or as a handheld with just the beater bar or the attachments. The batteries and attachments are interchangeable. The only regret we have is that we wish we had bought the animal version that has a stronger motor for pet hair but this one works pretty well.

What got us thinking about the Dysons is that we brought the DC35 with us to the extended stay place. With 3 cats and two litter boxes we are vacuuming the carpet at least once a day.

Our next dream Dyson purchase will probably be the Dyson Heat+Cool that in addition to the fan can both heat and cool.

We plan on blogging about the repairs and upgrades to our Cameo as well as catching up on some of the great things we did while in Houghton Michigan so stay tuned.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Speaking of which - I really need to vacuum again. But I don't have that fancy one - just a cheap old thing that works. There's really no hope for this old carpet.
