Maiden Camping Voyage!!!

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.

Now to get the brakes hooked up…

Inside coming along nice!

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….

Got busy with care for mom and haven’t been able to get to see the little camper, but Pete is keeping me posted with pictures!  Here are the latest:

Flooring is installed

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!
