I purchased my Designer just south of Birmingham, not the Atlanta area. Since my home base is south of Birmingham, I really wanted a dealer close and they were super and super competitive.
The move from the temporary parking spot to my home base was interesting. I have read many posts from old salts stating they didn't have a 4x4 truck and didn't want one and never had needed one. Well I got that out of my system this morning. I had a slight down hill backing to the spot which is also about six inches off of level. With having to pull up a couple of times to get the low side right, if I hadn't had a 4x4 tow vehicle I would still be digging it out. The Designer was high and dry, but.....Glad I have a 4x4.
The shore power was not installed until 5:00pm so I got to use my generator all day so I know it is working and up the job. I now have everything hooked up except the stinky slinky, but that can wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow will be the install of my DirecTV dish, but right now I'm enjoying a glass of iced tea with my feet up. I'm not moving until bed time.

Also, I'm a single so I'm the only one enjoying the Designer this evening.
My first trip will probably be to Road Atlanta in late September for the Petite LeMans race. My daughter and her family always go in their MH and this will be my first year with the ability to b there with them 24/7. I have twin grand children 2 1/2 years old - a boy and a girl.

Stinky Slinky! LOL I like that. We now have a new name for the "tube"... I asked Don what that was and without a beat he said "the ... tube"!

Give it another season and bet you won't be by yourself... those little grandbabies are gonna have you in their pocket and will be making awesome camp memories with you! Don't forget the camera!

Birmingham... I flew into that airport in the 70's on the way to Ft McClellan for basic training. One weekend, I hung out with friends who lived in Birmingham. Fun times
