2014 Camping Season Start

Ours started last weekend....drove south about 200 miles to skirt the incoming snow. It worked....just had to winterize when we got back.

Great opener for our family.

I guess "officially" ours starts this next Wednesday, but we did a shake down trip about a month ago, at our favorite weekend getaway park about 30 miles away.

This trip will be semi-local, for five days. We just need to scratch our hitch-itch and recharge our batteries. Looking forward to a nice, quiet, restful long weekend.

This winter took a huge toll on both of us. SO glad this one is behind us. I know those of you up North had it much worse, but for us here in the South it was brutally cold and *long*.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

Our first trip of the season is always close to home, usually at Boyd Lake SP (Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Boyd Lake) so that we can de-winterize, do any spring maintenance or repairs that are needed and use the dump station to dispose of the RV anti-freeze. We normally take a grandkid or two along and they love being able to get outdoors, ride bikes, fish, or play on the playgrounds.

This year, we (just the 2 of us) plan to go in mid-April instead of our normal mid-May 1st trip just to get some experience in towing and setting up the new 5ver. So far all we've done is tow it from storage to the house and back to storage with a few stops in local parking lots to get some backing experience.

The combination of a new 5ver along with a new TV means learning how to manuever with the different set-up...we had an F250 with a 26ft TT until this year. We are excited to get out and have some fun!!

Hope to get out by the middle of May if the weather cooperates and if our new TT is delivered by then.

Our first trip will be April 3rd to James Island Rv Park, Charleston SC. Finally after two years trying we got reservations for weekend of Cajun Festival. Being from SW, La. this will probable be the closest I will get to Crawfish and Zydego Music this year. Wife and I both ready to hit the road.
