Final Trip of 2010

We finally made the trip out to our local SP, Lake Eufaula State Park. Weather was overcast and windy, but high's were in the high 60's and the first night got down to 38, but the rest were in the high 40's to low 50's.
The new trailer did great. Ran everything except the outside grill and AC.
I can't receive as many channels with the omni directional antenna that I did with the batwing style, but what channels I did receive came in great.
The keypad works about 90% of the time, so I make sure I have my keys with me just in case.
I am currently in contact with Jensen (manufacturer of the antenna) and Southco (manufacturer of the keypad) to see if we can improve those two items.
Winterized the trailer when I got home. Everything was easy to get to, probably the easiest trailer I've done.

Here's a few pics of the trip.
The last pic is our view out the large side window.

Gary, thats a great looking rig and it looks good on the site. i am glad to hear things went smooth with the new toy, it's about time and too bad it time to put it away until next season but this will change your out look on camping i am sure of it and bring you back to the wild side.

Thanks guys.
We enjoyed the weekend even though we didn't do our normal camping activities. There is a marina and docks close by and we have a pontoon boat there. If you rent a slip you can fish the docks, if not you can fish the floating marina for $4 or $5. The marina also has a small cafe that serves breakfast and lunch. Of course during the summer there is swimming as well. The sites are good size and there is another area that has full hook ups, but it's about 2 or 3 miles down the road. We usually camp there if we are going to be out for more than the weekend. Either campground is nice, playgrounds, pavillions, hiking trails, large paved sites and roads, picnic table (some new), fire rings, etc... The best thing, it's only about 15 miles from the house!

winter camping

These pictures give me camping fever bad... I'm planning to take the kids out soon when I get a long weekend. My camper is already winterized, but heat is all we'll need and it works really well. I am fortunate like you and live with 15 minutes of all the good campsites!! gotta love it.

The only real camplaints I have about last weekend was the wind and the slow fishing

The wind did die down enough the last night to have a campfire, so we enjoyed that evening.

Also all the fishing reports weren't any good so we didn't even get a hook wet. I get my reports from guys that are actually fishing. Everyone around here is pretty good about helping each other out with depth, type of bait and so on.

Get on out there if your able and enjoy. Cool weather camping can be a lot of fun. You usually can get your pick of sites. Since there was only a few campers out I was trying not to crowd anyone so the one I picked out wasn't the best, but it worked out for us.

Great Pics, Gary!! Beautiful Camper! Bad Ace TV!!!
I figure in OK you could camp a little longer, unlike our poor cousins up in the Great White North who winterized their rigs while we were still experiencing upper 90's.....
We are cold camping right now for Thanksgiving, having a blast!!

Hey that's great. Hope your enjoying being out camping in the fall.

I knew a couple of guys that use to camp Thanksgiving and deep fry a turkey using peanut oil. They loved it.

Love the new tt and the tv does pretty good. I have the 5.4 V8 in mine, but it does pull alright around here, no mountains. Handles the heavy tongue weight, 953 dry, and very stable going down the road in all conditions. I wouldn't complain if I had the V10 like you though.

Nice pictures. Nothing quite as nice as fall camping by my way of thinking. Does every site come with one of those leaf creatures.

The site we had came with 2, but we have had as many as 4. They also collect dirt & odd stuff, feed ants and bugs with discarded food and drink and are excellent noise makers. Unfortunately they do not come with an on/off switch. However, they do include hugs and kisses which makes about anything bearable.
