We finally got out for our first adventure. Yay! We went to Ace's High Campground in East Lyme, CT and had a beautiful site. The campground presented a great opportunity to experience the rig using full hook-ups: water, cable TV, 50 amp electric and, yuck, the sewer hook-up.
On Friday night we were joined by good friends Mary, Todd, Liz and Gordon for our first RV party! It was a special night and we were glad to share it with such great company.
On Saturday after having breakfast with my brother Bill and his wife, Joyce, we had Bryce join us for the rest of the day. Bryce immediately claimed the couch for herself and curled up. Then Bryce whipped Nancy in a cut-throat game of Mille Bornes.
The rig was a joy. The 2 air conditioners kept the 90+ degree temperatures at bay and I had the opportunity to learn all the systems. I spent a good part of Saturday trying to install a water filter system. So, using all my wonderful plumbing skills, I only received 2 showers before properly tightening the fixtures and completing the installation.
It was a great first outing and we can't wait to take it out again. The only major problem was after arriving home from the trip Nancy made me go to work!
