I finally am getting away for the Carly's maiden voyage to Colorado Bend State Park in Texas. Unlike the advice I would give and probably should take, this voyage is to a remote park, 30 miles from town with 1/3rd of the drive over rough dirt roads. So no running to WalMart for forgotten supplies.
Fortunately I am pretty experienced with campers and with the park so there should be few surprises. And I did actually take a nap in the camper the other day when I was trying to figure out how to live without all the stuff in my Niagara I never used.
The real downside is that this will be late June and the park has no electric sites. I'll probably bring a battery lanterns and not even turn the lights on, just to make sure I don't run the battery too low. That is unless I have time to order some LEDs. So it is battery only to run the fan for three nights and leave the vent and windows open in the daytime, when we are out hiking.
In this regard, has anyone done a mod to make a sun/rain canopy that fits over the service side window? I'd like to leave it open all day but would hate to damage the interior if we were out of camp if it rained. It seems like some treated nylon, velcroed to the "A", then staked to the ground with a line would do the trick.
Everyone else in the group will be in tents. So being on a bed will be very comfy, relative to the company. I wonder if I will have to fend off requests to sleep on the dinette bed?
