We successfully completed our first real voyage in the Burro
(still working on naming her). I did an art show in Ann Arbor, so we hooked her up and headed north. We spent 1 night in a campground in WV on the way up and then 5 nights in Ann Arbor and one night at Pipestem state park in WV (will do a writeup, wonderful place).
was a real treat to stay in. Bed was super comfy. My wife found a memory foam eggcrate at overstock.com for about $60 and it was super. We found that we had plenty of room, although staying organized is a must. Shower worked out really well and was much easier than I thought. The hot water heater was really amazing.
Things to work on are:
Making sure the a/c window unit is watertight! Rained hard several times and water poured in onto the bed
Replacing the icebox. I packed two frozen gallon jugs for the trip up, but the box never got below 50 deg. Thank goodness we had a small dorm fridge
or we would have struggled in that department.
Some sort of awning
. Coming in and out from the rain (and tracking in dirt) wasn't good. I now understand why people put rugs in front of their doors.
Overall a very good first trip and looking forward to many more. When I am traveling by myself, I will probably do a bit more boondocking
, so that should be a new challenge.
