First time out of the driveway

Finally made it out of the driveway, the pic isn't great as I forgot my camera, so I took it with my cell phone.
We only stayed one night as we are under a winter storm advisory tonight. Had a good time, the PUGS and reflectix in the windows make a HUGE difference, I had to get up a couple times to turn the heat down. The X17Z is a really nice little camper, I think it is going to work out very well for us. So much easier to organize than the popup and much quicker to setup. It was kinda weird being the only people in the campground.

We love our x17Z -- I hope you have many enjoyable camping adventures with yours. It is so true how much easier it is to set up than the popup. We loved our popup, but we love the 17z more. :-)

Enjoy!

Hard to believe we went camping Friday night and now we have snow on the ground again, where oh where is this spring I keep hearing about?
Oh well, we did get a good chance to go through everything and get a little more organized.
