We took out our new to us class A.. the copa, copa cabana... and had a great time! (no thanks to the campground we stayed at though) We went up to silverwood lake campground where we camped on cement without hookups (which was fine because we wanted to test out everything, but for $49 a night, thats kind of insane!). Our site was littered with trash (which we picked up & burned) but other than that it seemed very peaceful & serene... until about 7pm. Then we learned a second language via yelled conversations & music.
Apparently there was a huge family get together of tent campers (who by the way was still setting up tents at midnight!). Had myself an extra nightcap just to make sure I could fall asleep as the radio was on well after 12:30 am and we could hear a lot of partying going on.
If I had my buggy I would have fired it up at the crack of dawn just to pay them back!
We went to the lake the following morning where we launched DH's jet ski & set up our canopy for the day on the beach. I rode a jetski for the first time (not my thing, lol) and hubby & my daughter took turns riding the rest of the day. We ended up having to take the canopy down due to the wind, which also made it fun to make lunch, but overall it was a fun day.
We returned to camp and hubby went to talk to the camp host to make sure that the 10pm no radio and quiet voices rule was actually going to be enforced, only to find out that the only camp host was all the way back at check in. Doesn't really make sense to have them so far away, but whatever. They said that they've received several complaints about that group and that they would be on it that night. Thank goodness! We heard a little of the bump, bum bump music but nothing like the night before.
So a couple lil things we learned on our testing campout weekend...
1. The jacks need to be down to put the slide out
2. We need a level
3. We prefer boondocking in the middle of BFE
4. We think the sprayer next to the toilet leaks if you use it
5. We need to install an inverter so DH can sleep with his machine
6. Always pack enough sleeping aid... AKA ~ Rum
