finally able to get our very delayed season going. camper is coming home from storage (work) with me tomorrow to flush the pink stuff, dress the beds, fill the cupboards and what not. setting out for our first weekender of the year this weekend and I'm excited. The kids are champing at the bit. Hopefully the weather doesn't get testy, currently showing clear but hotter than Hades

Good luck! First trip of the season always seems to be more stressful than usual.

we used it once in the driveway already. our first outing isn't until labor day. Hopefully i can get a bunch of fall camping in. I also hope the camp grounds are empty in the fall!

^ you and me both friend. opted to put it back in storage shortly after it came out end of march. out of the driveway means the boat could live at home. Normally the camper lives at home so it can stay plugged in. I'm only allowed one at home to not upset the house nazis

We've had 2 trips cancelled on us. So, instead of Colorado and South Dakota, we are now doing a state park a few hours from us...one we don't get to (actually has been years since we been) often.

I love to tally the nites in the camper, and if we can hit 30 a year, I like to think we spent a month in it....this year we will be lucky to hit 10. Note I do count driveway camping...because we did 1 nite this year in the drive way...and my daughter has "camped" in the driveway 3 nites this year...wi-fi, fridge, and all. Fun times.

have the house battery with me, shes coming home after work to get the pink stuff out and the fridge cooling.

as for the boat, always had a little fishing boat, this lockdown got the wife to sign up to something more family friendly. now i have a 1992 chaparral 2020 sl. nice boat been tinkering. lots of work, even more than the camper at this point but ill get there. we have used it a ton.

FINALLY got out, got a lot of heat and rain but it was a success. The kids had a blast, lots of food and beverages and a fairly nice local site to boot....... hows everyone doing this season so far?

Glad you had a successful outing.
We have our 4th trip of the year coming up at Huntington Beach State Park in SC for a week.
