First Time Camping Since Heart Attack

Camper is packed and pulled into the driveway. Will hook up and be on my way to Glenrose, Tx tomorrow for Texas State Dulcimer Festival.

This will only be the second time I've used the camper and first time since my heart attack. I still have to have someone help me put the sides up since I'm not suppose to be lifting very much weight for now but that's no problem. That's what I love about the aframes....45 seconds at the most and the walls are up.

I'll try to post pics when I get back Sunday evening.

Wish me luck. Suppose to be heavy thunderstorms Thursday evening so we'll see if the camper leaks.

I hope you have a wonderful time camping! And be sure to have someone help you. RVers are a good group of people that don't mind helping others.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
