Camping Pics

Well we got in our 2nd trip of the year in this weekend. By this time we usually have 4 or 5. Just too many things going on to get out like we would like to.
My brother along with a couple of his friends came down to camp at the lake this weekend, so Trish and I took the LaCrosse out to camp with them. Had a nice relaxing weekend and a couple of very nice evenings around the campfire. We did have some camping neighbors who liked their music a little loud, but we liked the type of music they were playing and they did cut it off by 10pm.
Trish and I fished a few hours Saturday and again this morning. Fishing is still a little slow, but we managed to fill a couple of quart bags with fillets.
Everything in the tt worked as it should, zero problems. My brothers friends were impressed with the tt as well as a couple of camping neighbors.
We had a nice campsite with a good view of the lake, so here's a few pics.

Here’s a few more pics.




These last two are night time pics of the blue rope light I have mounted under the tt. It gives off a nice “glow” under the tt and allows me to see anything that I might trip over without being so bright that it would disturb others. What cars drove by at night always slowed down or stop to take a look.
I keep tryin’ to get a decent pic. These two are the best I’ve been able to take so far.

What do you wash and wax your tt with? It looks great and shiny. I like keeping mine looking good too. Help me out!

Great pic transamz9. Thanks for sharing.
Reminds me of the fish frys my family has. Only we don't seem to get together like that very often since Mom and Dad aren't with us anymore. Mom was the "real" fisherman of the family and Dad was my jugging & trotline partner.
The crappie we caught this weekend were 1½ lbs at the most, so we didn't take any pics, but here's one with Dad and my BIL holding a 54 lb flathead caught on a jug line and then one with Mom with a couple of the crappies we caught that day.




pbrackney, I wash with a regular car wash then I use Protect-All. It's good for all surfaces and easy to apply. They also make a rubber roof treatment that works great. I need to apply Protect-All again. I last applied Protect-All last fall and have ony washed the tt once this spring.

Gary, that's a mighty fine trailer you have there and looks like a great site, I really like that model of LaCrosse you have.

Waiting for our next trip, like Gary have to much going on to get away.
