90 miles is not to bad. Don't sweat the little things. You will forget some things so just make it a learning experience and have fun.

I second the vote for hitting the manuals and familiarizing myself with both those and the equipment - all of it. If I know where to look for the information I need, I don't necessarily have to remember specifics? I can go get that any time....

I have to agree. New or used. Have to clean from top to bottom. Just feel better.

Study, clean, camp and visit WallyWorld. These are a few suggestions.
