Maiden Voyage....

Finally got everything sorted at home, and hit the road. Drove to Cloudland Canyon State Park in north Georgia yesterday. Nice park, big, level, private site on the west rim loop.

Unfortunately the only view is the trees which we are nestled under, so we are heading out this morning for higher altitude, cooler temps, and scenic views.

Loaded and ready to head out...



Setting up for the first night of camping...



Supper time...



Fixin' to break camp... Y'all have a nice day where you are...

I love that park. I miss it, too far of a drive now.

Great pictures and I got to agree that it's a nice looking park. Looks like everything is going well for you.

We're still alive and having a great time in NC at the moment Unfortunately the net is almost non existent in this park.

Will post up more pics n such when we can.

Would like to say that thus far the Grey Wolf is holding up nicely, and the eco boost pulled it thru the Smokies wonderfully. Really impressed with the entire rig so far. Whew! :-)

I use an old fold up ramp, but find a spot where I can walk it in as level as possible. When I unloaded it here I didn't even need the ramp, found a great spot the tailgate just fit over...

Loading it at our house before the trip...



I put the front wheel in the right front corner of the bed to tie it down, and slide the rear tire to the opposite rear corner....
