When It Rains, It Pours

Another outing, another set of skills to master.  Tim and I ventured up the road to the East Portal Reservoir Campground to try out full hookups.  This was just a quick overnight trip, but might be typical of the types of stops we’ll make during our journey.  For most of our nine months, we will be touring, not camping.  This means that we will be moving almost every day, although we will try not to rush things too much.  We want to enjoy ourselves, and not burn ourselves out, but we know that we won’t have the luxury of staying in one campground for a week at a time.

Before the Rains Came
Not only did we successfully test out all of the hookups, but we also inadvertently tested how we would fare if the weather turned nasty and we could not spend time outside.  We had a downpour for much of our stay and enjoyed the evening inside.  Although the RV is small, it does have two distinct “living” areas.  I have the front seat, which swivels around to face the back.  A removable table in front of the seat is the perfect spot for my laptop.  Tim has the rear sofa, where he can watch TV, play on his iPad or work at the table.  Being inside the small space did not bother us or make us feel claustrophobic.
