Good Bye New Camper Smell Hello Camp Fire Smell

Since our plans for a Memorial Day outing was canceled by a closed campground, we finally got to take out the new X19 this weekend. We went to the Bull Town Campground near Burnsville WV. It was a great weekend to go. The weather was perfect with the nights in the 50's and the days in the mid 80's.

This is the first time we have been out in about 3 years since mom passed, and with a totally new rig, we found a few things like always we need to get for the next outing. The new Tundra did a great job towing, and I loved the Bakflip G2 cover I put on it. This rig never had to slow down for the WV mountains.

I have a front receiver on order to put a bike rack on the front of the truck, and when that's done, I hope weekend after next I will be gone again.

Sounds like a great trip - I hope you all didnt drink the water in West Virginia. It has majic potion in it and you will end up staying there haha...

I still love the smaller campers with just enough room for the two of us on the inside. It always makes us do up our camp site for enjoying the outside camping thing. The smaller units are always easy to move around the country side and still enjoy the trips...

We havent been able to ge out yet this season - retirement sucks money wise haha... Hopefully will be on the WV/VA forest trail roads mountain line before the summer gets over... I have been wanting to camp at a off-road site called Flagpole Knob located in the George Washington National Forest, along the border of Virginia and West Virginia and check out my off-road POPUP latest camping mods capabilities. Not sure if Momabear is all this excited as I am hehe... It is accessable with a pretty small winding forest trail road but think I can make it just fine with my off-road POPUP and truck. Will probably get run off by a bear...

Typical camping spot for my OFF-ROAD POPUP at FLAGPOLE KNOB/REDDISH KNOB locations.

Your right about the water. I have lived here for almost 40 years, and don't want to leave. Too much to see and too much to do. I love it.
