Hello Blogger Friends, I’m back!
Taking 2 months off was a nice break from the stresses of my life.
You wonder what I’ve been doing for two months away from Blogger Land. Well folks, I’ve been doing a few things, one of which was working on our new travel trailer, "The Beast" with Bulldog Man. We’ve been getting used to all the bells and whistles, and making sure everything functions properly. Basically an RV shakedown!!! The first weekend we pulled the trailer out of storage at the warehouse, hooked it up to our truck, and drove it to a local state park. Our reasons for setting the trailer up at a local state park was to ensure we were close to home if something went wrong or we needed something we forgot.
We drove into the state park cautiously, driving the tight winding roadway, looking for a campsite big enough to fit our 38 foot trailer. After driving past 8 campsites, we came across one site, both Bulldog Man and I were confident our trailer would fit into, without any issues.
Before situating the trailer for the found campsite, we made sure no one was behind us. Bulldog Man drove past the site in order to straighten up the trailer and align it to the campsite pad. I jump out of the truck with my cell phone to help talk Bulldog Man back up on the campsite pad without any issues. I start communicating instructions to Bulldog Man, and he started backing the truck and trailer, when all of a sudden this red Dodge 2500 pulling a 5th wheel comes flying through the narrow park roadway, around the curve, and down the hill where we were backing with a vengeance. He’s racing, trying to get to a campsite before anyone else does, because it’s the only one completely surrounded by trees. I gave the man a dirty look and yelled at him to stop. Obviously the dude wasn’t paying attention to anything going on in the park. The dude had no choice; we were in the middle of the roadway already backing up; he had to back his truck out of our way and wait like a good park patron should.
Within a minute our trailer was backed and parked directly center on the campsite pad, and the dude drove red faced and embarrassed because he knew he was wrong, and because his impatience only got him 5 campsites from where we were located.
Karma’s a Bit_ _!!!
Stay tuned for my next post; plenty of excitement, and laughter, heading your way from just this weekend’s trip. I also look forward to sharing with you what else we’ve been up to for 2 months, along with some changes that will be made to this blog.
