Today is the day we head to Fallen Leaf Campground in South Lake Tahoe to meet up with about 23 other families from our son’s school for the Holiday weekend.
I know we’re not quite ready yet, no brakes on the trailer, awning isn’t tested yet, and don’t have the darned giant bubble recipe made up (thanks Peg)! But damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!!
Pretty uneventful trip to the campgrounds. I think everyone is staying home because of the fire in Yosemite. That makes it perfect in Tahoe…less crowds! And the smoke is worse back home than it is here!
Several people stop to ask about our camper and I get to show it off a bit. After setting up camp, Mike and I put the awning up for the first time, and IT FITS! YEA! And all my worries about the door not going to be able to open without lifting the awning….no worries!!
After a couple days of relaxing and playing in the lake, the maiden voyage comes to an end.
Woke up early today to make the big drive to Grass Valley to meet Pete with my camper at the upholsterer. Was told the driveway was a bit tricky and hard to back in, so I let the “pro” do it. Got that little baby in a single car garage at an angle! Very tricky!!
This is a picture before backing in between the boat and wall on the left, and then taking a sharp right to put in the garage. So the boat cushions were on the work bench, and CalTrans brought in a seat to recover and then I’m next in the que!!! Plan on going Monday to see if any progress has been made. I was told it would take a couple weeks. But I’ll get some pictures anyway. Mark and Laurie from Artist Upholstery have an amazing work room!
Vicki just sent a picture of Joe’s progress. They received the fridge and microwave last week, and I brought in the little heater Vicki found on e-bay and I bought. They have it over the new wave heater to hide it. Decided to modernize it to make it comfy (and SAFE) to camp in. This baby has to last another 67 years! So a few more drawers, and doors, and some upholstery and THEN I get to take it for a spin….
Even with the flurry of trailers coming in to be restored progress continues on our little one. The flooring has been installed and the walls are finished. Gotta wait a couple days for the floor to set up and then back at it! Happy Easter!
