is back from its third trip! :cblob We went to Williamsburg, VA, March 11-14. And we only saw 4 RV's the whole day.:chin We saw snow almost the whole way down there, no flowers blooming, trees JUST starting to have swollen buds, but pansies were planted in many public spots.
I used this site's references :) to find the Anvil RV campground. We got a 20% discount for it being off-season and got to occupy 2 spaces (easy parking). It was VERY handy to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown, just off routes 60 and 64. The one drawback: a major railroad track was just 50 yards away! The bigger rigs' owners said it shook them all up at 2AM, but we did not feel anything (Is that due to the sleek aerodynamics of the Casita
??), just very noisy! :drums This destination was my choice, and we did tourist things. We expected to find Bush Gardens open since on the web it said March-Oct, but it only opens the Sat. close to St. Pat's Day since Ireland is one of its countries. Anyway, with my bad knees (surgery for replacements was to be next month, but it got cancelled since the doctor is having his torn rotator cuff repaired), we left a day early because I could not take one more step after 3 days.
report: very easy to pack and head out, especially since we only packed for breakfast, lunch and snacks and cocktails. Easy handling! No problems! :steer
when we got home -at midnight- Bob forgot to unconnect some wire to his vehicle's alternator from the Casita and forgot to turn the fridge
to OFF from DC, until morning.
we rode down with the bathroom window up a little bit AND the Fantastic Fan open a wee bit (enough so that the knob rotated off!)
the grill/candle lighter gizmo would not light
, so we could not start the hot water until morning as Bob did not want his hand match-close to the starter. We later realized the gizmo DID work, it was just too COLD at first! :o
So, some beginner mistakes, but nothing stressful. And the cutest thing was something Bob said the day we unpacked: "Now I feel like Charles Watts - I had a good time and I don't know when I can make the next trip! I have to figure that out!" :wink
