Maiden Voyage

Well we take the new TT out on its maiden Voyage tonight ....a nice weekend at an off season camp area....dry camping almost boondocking.
Wish us luck its about a 2 hour drive along the western part of the mass pike..so plenty of hills to see how the TV does.
Its supposed to get cool at night and maybe some rain by Sunday so we will be running everything.

Hopefully we do better than when we camped in the yard and the converter died.

Update as we go if we have cell service.

Our Maiden Voyage was last year - to a resort 1/2 mile from Disneyland. Found out the main AC didn't work.

We are sitting here in Beartown state forest in Monterey...near Great Barrington.....after a few wrong roads and wrong place we made it

TV got the workout of its life...very hilly roads getting here....wouldn't have been bad if my smart (dumb now)phone gps didn't send us to the wrong town same address haha....too bad too it was a beautiful spot on the persons front lawn haha even deer there when we pulled up .

Otherwise we are here boondocking in the state forest...a few night fisherman on the lake but that's it

TT was easy to set up and only a bit of side leveling. My sons did the stabilizers..we are still hooked to the TV since its not moving for a few days.

Sitting outside eating my wifes homemade apple pie listening to the owls.....I'm in heaven folks...pictures tomorrow ...

Jim looks like a very nice quite location for your family outing but just wondering what happened to the front of your pickup, I realize that this time of year the critters don't have much to eat so maybe they been naughing on the front and you better watch out maybe they will work there way to the back and on. Have fun be safe and especially be alert. Happy Campin..........Ron

Those panoramic pictures shot from a cell phone can give you some weird shots once and awhile.

I at first thought, "wow, there's another camper and truck exactly like his," Then I realized that it's two pix side by side LOL Anyway, after that, I'd have to say you found a pretty darned nice place to try out the new camper. One bit of advice though, If I were you, I'd at least unplug the electric plug from the truck to the trailer. Over the course of a couple of days, you could draw down your TV battery and wind up spending another night beyond when you planned to go home !!!!!

Our trailer is still in storage, so I'd have to say "I'm green" LOL
