Well...we are back...and what a wonderful time we had! Cheraw SP is a hidden treasure, only 40 miles (no interstate) from our home in Florence, SC. My first time camping in our Egg....previously tents, popups, tarps, backs of minivans! What a difference. The campground overlooks Juniper Lake, and we had a nice breeze. Sand Hills of South Carolina and we ran the Fantastic Fan last night...and even needed blankets by morning. We rented the campsite for Sat and Sun night, even though we weren't planning to stay Sunday. We did want to hang out as long as we could...and did so until about 5 pm (afternoon heat forced us to bring out the awning
and turn on the AC).
I learned a few things about my camper. There's a musty smell coming from under the sink/water tank area. Gotta check into that. Nothing wet, but noticed some mildew spots and a slight smell when open the cabinets. Our awning
may need some attention...it rolls in crooked and one side binds right toward the end. Also, noticed a fresh water leak in the gasket right under the foot pedal on the toilet (thru which water flows to "flush" - not the bad stuff, thankfully!). Anyway all this stuff is minor...it's a 1999 SD.
I did flush my water tank. Figured out that you only hear the water pump when the faucets are turned on (duh)....and also that it's hard to light
the burner on the stove when the Fantastic Fan is on full! Our bed was quite comfy - I don't think we're going to need any kind of extra mattress cover (I'm not a big guy...5'10, 160#...so my wife and I fit nicely).
I think we're going to go to Table Rock SP up near the SC/NC state line in a couple weeks Then the Dreher Island trip for Univ of SC Parents weekend.
Very happy with the Casita. We're off to a good start, hopefully many, many more years of enjoyment. This 25 hour period was like a vacation right in the middle of life!
