I'm Back!!!



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.

  2. I've had that happen just with a vehicle for a parking spot. I even stalked the driver that stole my spot WHILE I was pulling in (she cut me off) just to give her a piece of my mind. When I found her, her face was so sad, I knew she needed the parking space more than I did...I said nothing.

    Sounds like an exciting adventure. I know you needed a rest. You and Bulldog Man have had a rough two years. A well earned, much deserved time off.

    1. Gail,

      I would do the same thing if a person needed it more than I.

      Our adventure was very exciting and interesting. I can't wait to share it.

  10. Sandy, glad to have you back! Your RV looks fantastic. So nice to have a home away from home. Good travels!

  11. I'm glad to see you back. Your new trailer looks pretty nice and I'll bet you two get a lot of good adventures with that kind of mobility. My wife and I keep looking at those little truck camper hybrids, maybe we will break down and get one some fine day.

    I worked at a local state park for six months on a senior work program some years back. Most of the people who came in with their travel trailers and RV's were nice, but some of them were idiots like the one you wrote about. Any time you get around people I guess you are going to have to deal with some jerks.

  12. So glad you're back, Sandy!!! Can't wait to hear all about your adventures. There is always someone in a big, hot hurry to get somewhere first. That is one amazing RV! I bet it was a wonderful way to travel!

  13. She's back, she's back! :o] My gosh, I didn't realize your new RV was so big! Takes a brave man to jockey one like that into a camping spot. But I'm sure it gets easier every time you do it. Glad that idiot (did I say that?) didn't crash into you. Can't wait to hear of all your new adventures. Welcome back!
