Well, we made our maiden voyage this weekend. Took all four dogs (2 Boxers and 2 Shih Tzu pups) and headed to Angel Fire for the weekend (Monte Verde RV Park). All went pretty well, considering the Shih Tzu pups had never been in a motor home and it rained almost all weekend. But we were prepared with lots of rags and a shade tent to put over their exercise pen.
We're going to try to get one of the vehicles equiped with a hitch by the weekend; the previous MH owners pulled their car so we have almost everything we need...except for the hitch on the car. Any recommendations where to call? My folks had a Blue Ox hitch installed here once but they don't remember who did it. The MH came from Aloha RV and I was going to start with them. We'd like to pull the truck as I drive a VW Eos and the dogs don't fit well in it, but it's pretty heavy. I figure Aloha will know.
I think we'll pass on joining everyone for dinner b/c of the dogs. We can't leave them alone in the RV (at least, not yet) and the thought of taking 4 dogs to someone else's place gives me the shivers.
But we're looking forward to meeting everyone. We both took the week of Aug 2 off so we'll extend our trip somewhat...maybe head for Pagosa Springs or somewhere not too far.
