Cool Maiden Voyage Under Our Belt

Last weekend we got our maiden voyage under our belt. It was long awaited. We quickly threw together a weekend in a campground in Canon City, Co. This is our first RV as well so we don't back up very good and were lucky to find a pull thru site. Those camp folks were so helpful getting us situated and set up, giggling that we were pulling new hoses and water filter out of their store packaging. We tried out everything! Including the whole house vaccuum which may I say is freaking awesome! We were unable to get the furnace to come on Sunday A. M. which was a little crisp, but turned on the fireplace to take off the chill. Have the techs working on that. We don't have satelite yet so went to Walmart, bought a movie, tried the DVD player. Although trying hear it through a thunderstorm proved a challenge and adjusting the color so everyone was not sunburned. I have to say this beats all those years we tent camped when the kids were growing up. I love cooking in my little kitchen although I was missing a few things in my haste to get this trip together. The oven makes the best biscuits ever, better than home. We are "country babies" used to dark black nites and the quiet of the country so the security lights and noise of a campground are something we will have to get used to living with. We also had "the witchy ladies fingernails" over our bedroom slide from tree braches brushing the roof. A little creepy until I figured out what it was. My husband is a real handy guy and was able to figure everything out and how to do it. I am so impressed and proud of him. Our long range plans are to go full time when DH retires. Unfortunately, it is the end of the season and we can't wait until spring next year to begin more adventures.

Sounds like a most successful first outing to me...and with growing experience from your future trips, the outings become even sweeter. Congrats on that first one under your belt...it's the ONE you'll always remember fondly. Happy camping. Bob

your maiden voyage

we did that recently ourselves with the Tuscany. had to try out everything which included the washer-dyer---what an experience that was--the spin dry shake was like a remote massage. had no experience with this. ours has lots of features and did work through them like you. enjoy.
