I confess that, while I do 95% of the cooking at home, the only cooking I'd rather do while camping is to make the coffee and roast marshmallows.

Can't wait for the kids to be old enough to start cooking for the DH and I.

I'll confess - I cried a little on Tuesday.

I bought a black tank flush for my 2nd black tank. It was one of those things that I kept meaning to do and didn't get around to. I had to take the camper in for service to have a toilet replaced and I figured, I might as well let them install the tank flush. But, of course- being me, I was very specific that I wanted the hose hidden up inside of the underbelly and gave instructions for exactly where I wanted the hose end installed.

I cried a little when I saw that they charged me 2.25 hours at $99/hour to install a $30 part!

Next time, I'm gonna buck and and install this carp myself!

I secretly liked the Dodge Rams since around 2010 while owning a Ford, then I bought one this week. Cats out of the bag! I feel dirty now.

I confess, I watch in awe when other campers wives actively help set up. Hell I have even seen the woman do it all while the man watched!

Another confession, being a new 5er owner I learned the hard way to make sure you are straight when hooking up. I was hooking up, truck was at slight angle and I bumped back to lock coupling in place and corner of tailgate dinged the door on the generator/ storage compartment. Brand new camper...hate it when That happens!

No need to feel "dirty" - rather you should be grateful that you have finally been saved from that awful fate that awaits all Ford and Chevy owners out there - that being having to call for a tow or Roadside Assistance that all of them will have to make if they haven't already.

You have been saved brother

Yeah, call us when that Ruined Another Motor gives up the ghost and deposits its remains all over the road.

I confess I was impressed yesterday when my wife hooked up the trailer (by herself) while I was at work so we could leave for camping earlier.
