After a year of dreaming about our first camp-out…it’s over! It went way too fast. The Heart of Texas Camping Unit members were so awesome. They made us feel welcome from the moment we pulled up to the last wave goodbye. Our heads were spinning all the way home with the excitement of meeting new friends, trying to remember names ( my bad), and looking forward to the Christmas camp-out. I think there were 19 trailers there from a 1949 Wee Wind to the fabulous CCD parked next to us. We discovered one thing all Airstreamers have in common…they LOVE to show other Airstreamers their trailers! It was so fun to see all the different year trailers, some original, some restored…all AMAZING! The Halloween decorations were crazy fun and the Trick-or-Treaters were too cute.
The best part was actually using our trailer after owning it for a year and…everything worked! The tow there was nerve-wracking for me but Dan did great, he never gets bent out of shape though. It got down to 25 degrees Saturday night so our furnace got a work out. We baked biscuits in the oven without burning the bottoms. The shower was great and we took ice cream sandwiches that stayed frozen. The only hiccup was a leaking clamp at the water pump that just needed to be tightened. We only have one battery and haven’t installed a monitor yet, so we were pretty much flying blind on our power consumption. Thankfully, Paul and Ann of A&P Vintage Trailerworks charged us back up with their generator, just in case. Thanks guys! We have a whole new list of gadgets and gizmos we need and Lance at Top’s Vintage Trailerworks got Dan lined out on a new and hopefully faster/better polishing technique. We learned a lot, met new and interesting people, and actually CAMPED! It was a great weekend!
Hope you enjoy the photos. Our trailer is the one with the caution/crime scene tape. Happy Halloween everyone!
