First Trip of 2013 Under Our Belts....
I just got in from our first trip of 2013 using the two TT's in my signature. IT was only the 2nd overall trip for the White Hawk and the inaugural trip for the Jay Flight. We also had a buddy out there with his **********. (Umm, read my edited stuff below.)
I drove to my parents house last Thursday and I actually drove the rig out there. It was my first experience towing anything other then our old 17z with a 4Runner. The difference is night and day and I felt MUCH more comfortable driving the bigger TT/TV combo then I did with the smaller combo. There really is no comparison.
Thursday afternoon/night turned out to be good. It was just my brother our Dad and I setting up the two TT's before the rest of the family came later that day. Everything went ok with the exception of my Dad and I forgetting to put the sway bar on getting there. Eventually, everyone came out that night so we had dinner and started a fire. It was a perfect campfire night so I brought out some legal moonshine I purchased specifically for the trip.
I gave everyone in my family a solo cup filled with about 1.5 shots worth of the Apple Pie moonshine. It was pretty freaking delicious! Anyway, My parents who are mid 60's went to bed about 11 and at that point it was just my brother and I around the fire at his site. At about midnight I hear a constant beeping sound and wonder what it is. By 12:30 we begin to investigate and head to our parents TT and notice the sound is getting louder. It turns out that alarm clock on their nightstand was going off and neither of them heard it. Pretty scary that my brother and I heard it from his site and we were over 60' away and they never heard it right next to them. I guess the combination of sleeping in the TT for the first time, the upgraded pillowtop mattress and the moonshine did them in. lol
Friday was ridiculously windy and much cooler then normal. We spent a lot of time indoors, especially once we found out what was happening in Boston so we were glued to the TV. Our younger cousin did come out at night to stay for 2 nights. It drizzled here and there in the evening and we did got a lot of rain overnight.
Saturday was a good day. Still a little cooler then normal, but still a little breezy. My brother's family went shopping somewhere and my cousin and I hopped in with my parents to check out another local CG we were interested in and I'd say it's definitely one to consider now. My mom also wanted to check out a local nursery so she got some stuff and I got a venus fly trap for both myself and my cousin. lol Can jam and ring toss during the day. Another fire at night and another moonshine night. This time I broke out a pumpkin pie and a blueberry one. These were nothing special other then the pumpkin pie one smelling like pumpkin pie but not exactly tasting like it. lol The Apple Pie one was the best and everyone agreed.
Today was the most relaxing day. It turned out to be mid 50's and very sunny. It was still a little cool but sitting around the campfire and having the sun beat down on you warmed you up quickly. My sister-in-law picked up her mother for lunch so she stayed about 2 hours. Even though we have the site till Monday (tomorrow) morning, we still left today in the evening. We enjoy paying for the extra night but leaving in the evening the day before. This is great because we can book 4 nights starting on Thursday but we'll leave Sunday night.
Packing everything up tonight wasn't fun, but then again it never is. lol We were all a little rusty when it came down to putting everything away and getting ready to leave but my brother, our Dad and I were able to remember things the others forgot. lol
Can't wait to go back out in a few weeks!
