Today, Wednesday, April 24, 2013 is the official start of our full time RV adventure!! It was a long time coming and if you read The Maiden Voyage blog post you will likely agree that it is a good idea to follow the same route we practiced last year! Hopefully we’ve learned a few things since then!
It was a beautiful morning to leave. We followed our travel checklists and all was good. Except….when we pushed the button to bring in the big slide it moved a bit and just stopped. After several attempts, we unloaded stuff from the refrigerator and other heavy items in the cabinets on the slide. Still no go. So, I pushed the button while Greg gave the slide a healthy push from the outside. That did it!
We are heading to Hemet, CA for about a month and are looking forward to getting some R&R, seeing the sites, and spending time with Greg’s folks. We’ll be there to celebrate Dad’s birthday and Mother’s Day with Mom.
We are now in Lone Pine, CA at Boulder Creek RV Resort for one night and yes, old dogs do learn new tricks (we arrived before dark!).
With plenty of time to enjoy the warm sunny weather, backdrop of the mountains and a peak view of Mt. Whitney, this is a great start to our adventure! Except….we didn’t have the courage to open the big slide so we’ll deal with that in Hemet!
