Cool

I'm a bicycle event promoter in Northern California. We recently had events on back to back weekends at Whiskeytown Lake, so rather than go home in between, we just stayed out there in our '72 Trail Mite and enjoyed some great weather and some great bike riding, logging 14 nights in our little 13 footer.

Well, on our first night home, in the middle of the night, Kathy nudges me and says, "Would you close the vent? I'm cold." So what did I do? I stood up and reached for the knob, only to realize that the ceiling was a good two feet out of my reach. We had a good laugh in the darkness as we both realized, "Oh yeah, we're home."

I'm sure most of you have had similar "Where are we?" moments.

Talking

We have a King size Bed in the Fiber Stream and a Queen size Bed at home. We use similar bedding and multiple pillows on both. Robert has a nite stand and I do not in both places. The bathroom is located in the same general area in relation to the bed in both places. The TV is near the ceiling in both places. BUT Robert has to crawl over in the trailer and not at home.

I know exactly what Vic and Kathy are talking about. I've done a lot of traveling and slept in everything from caves on the beach to jungle lodges. I usually sleep great and get a good night's rest, no matter where I am. But the first night back in my own bed, I ALWAYS wake up in the dark, look around, and have a hard time time figuring out where I am. Weird, huh?

yep. Sleeping 3 nites a week in the trailer, and 4 at home recently has gotten my ballast all unbalanced.

When I get out of bed at home, I don't have to think about where my feet go.. but in the rig, I have to be carfeul or I will squash a dog.

Took a day or two in each place to get the balance.. much to that dogs dismay.

I'm sure that the dog will let you know that you're in it's space.
