Here she is.....24-feet of home-away-from-home!!!
On Saturday morning, we rounded up everything we would need at the grocery store. We went through the hook-up process and got to the State Park, about 20 miles from town, right at 2:00 pm, the assigned check-in time. Set up was a challenge this first time.......Eddie Dale tells me that backing up a fifth wheel is quite different from backing up a regular trailer. I was glad it was him maneuvering it into place and not me! Once we got it onto the parking pad, the rest of the hook-up went smoothly.
We took the pups with us for this first run and they were quite nervous and bewildered when we moved them from the truck to the trailer. But, they quickly realized that it was much cooler in the trailer with the A/C running than it had been in the cab of the truck. By the end of the evening, they started to relax and grow accustomed to their new surroundings.
I can sum up our entire time at the State Park by saying "we did a whole lot of nothing"! We napped, visited, read, sat outside in the quiet and relaxed. It was a wonderful time of recharging and working out some of the snags of camping. Every once in a while, you just need a little time to "decompress" like this!
I am looking forward to our next outing here in a couple of weeks for a week-long trip down to the Guadalupe river! I think we're ready!!!
