I set the camper up in the driveway to take a shower this morning after my 4 year old thought the goose neck tub filler on our claw foot tub in the house was a chin up bar... ugh... that boy is something else.

ON a positive note, the shower in the camper was great.

Had to get creative yesterday when setting up due to the pretty terrible slope of the site.

This is the first that my steps were defeated:

I'm originally from Wisconsin and lived in the Dells once upon a time. I worked at Noah's Ark for a summer. I'll be camping on the other side of the Dells for a week end of June.

I never thought our steps could be defeated. Gotta love the GlowStep.

I've been ordering more bits'n'pieces from amazon and camping world (more info when they arrive) in prep for our road trip starting in just over 2 weeks.
Plan to be spending much of this coming weekend re-organizing storage areas to maximize use of space (weather permitting)

I did make my own right-angle slide-out broom, using a soft broom, some plumbing fixtures, an extending broom handle, a couple of screws and liberal amounts of epoxy. I'll take/post photos if it holds up ok when I give it a first test at the weekend

We stayed the night in the Windjammer for the first time Sunday night. Didn't go anywhere, just stayed in it here at home. Wife likes it even more now that we've stayed in it, she says it will be perfect for our Florida site.
Cooked supper on the Coleman road trip for the first time, then switched it out to the griddles and wife cooked breakfast on it the next morning. She really likes it too, it gets a lot hotter than our Sams Club grill in our other trailer.
I didn't put the awning in because it was wet. I noticed it's a lot more stable and doesn't flap around in the wind like my other trailer awnings have.

We umm, well we got a little frisky and I'm sure I saw the bedroom slide moving. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem when we're in Florida.


Then Tuesday I got word no more work was coming up so we drove 135 miles and picked up my sunset trail from the mobile home park since the rent was due. Drove through the rain to get there, unhooked power, water and sewer in the rain, put the slide in in the rain, and hooked up in the rain.
Drove home in the rain and unhooked in the rain.

Wife was trying to hold an umbrella for me but it was a tossup whether she'd poke out one of my eyes with it or scratch my truck with it first so I told her I was fine and to go sit in the truck.

20 mpg on the trip up empty, 10.5 on the way home loaded.

Yesterday I cleaned up the road trip grill and put it away in the storage compartment of the Windjammer, it fits in there ok. Also put the new water hose, regulator, and water hose 90 fitting in there I bought for the trailer. The compartment is small but I still have room for the 30 ft electrical shore cord. I bought a new one that 90's right out of the side of the trailer and doesn't put so much stress on the plug in there.

I built a outside tv mount out of the mount that came with the trailer to hang a sidekick grill on the side of the trailer. Works good and the table that hangs on the side will be good to set the satellite receiver on for watching tv outside.

I put the griddles and stove top attachments I bought for the road trip back in their boxes and stored them in the kitchen cabinet under the bar.


Then onto the other trailer. Got all the food out of it. Cleaned both refrigerators, cleaned out and re-organized the front storage compartment where stuff had been gathering while I was working out of town. Left it open a lot of the day with the vent fan on to suck the moisture out.

Took the tow mirrors off my truck, took the hitch off my truck.


These campers are a lot of work.
