Maiden Voyage a success!

Camper was great, weather was awesome, and we had fun...

The tornado rinser I just put it worked great. Emptied the black tank and then turned it on. With the clear fitting I could see all the TP coming out so I know it did its job well. I would recommend it highly.

Only thing I would NOT recommend is putting that damn LCD outside. I fished the power wire out fine but when reinstalling it back inside it was impossible to get that power cord back down through the hole. You drop it in and it hits the top of the TouchAudio. Bad design! I had to remove the radio to get the TV power cord back down to the outlet. I'll probably just buy a second power cord to use outside.

Here are some pics....

Nice setup! Glad you had a successful maiden voyage. And I like the pictures of the campsite.

Happy camping,

Ya thats about as scenic as Illinois gets. The flattest land in the world I think. Your lucky to find trees in this state.

So...if I find myself in Illinois that's the one campground to be at? LOL

When we lived in Washington state and my parents lived in Illinois we once made the drive between the two. If you think that land is flat you should drive through South Dakota or parts of Wyoming. You may go insane.

Not sure where we are going next but next month we are making a 5hr trip to Iowa to camp. Recently got in touch w/my birth father and I was curious about that side of the family. Turns out he has a motorhome and the whole family camps a lot. What better way to reconnect with all of them than to make a camping weekend? Havent seen these people since I was 5yrs old. 32yrs later people are all grown up. Should be fun.

I've never been to Wyoming but I always thought it was supposed to be a beautiful place?

Actually, in camping, flat is good :-) However, if you want more scenery, try camping at a campground near a river with bluffs....northern Illinois, Starved Rock State Park, central Illinois, New Salem State Park, southern Illinois...Garden of the Gods Park.....but if you camp on the prairie, prepare for flat....and enjoy! :-)

Thanks! We actually have been researching better places to go. I will check all of these out.
