Our Basecamp is here!

In our driveway temporarily, while we check it out. For this newbie, backing it in, up a slope and between trees was an experience! (Deserving of a little bourbon in celebration.) Can't wait to go on our first camping trip very soon. Click image for larger version

I have to agree that it took me a while to back mine into my carport as well. I hauled horses years ago, so I know how to back :-) I'm blaming left shoulder surgery, from a month ago, as hampering me, as I seem to fine tune backing up with my left arm. I needed a margarita afterwards and the dogs were tired of hearing the SUV's backup beeper.

Congrats!! And as a captain on a friend's sailboat once said I am the captain and I get to make orders. Before anything questionable or dangerous he always called for a bolstering shot or drink! Although having it afterwards I think is a bot safer! Happy trails!!

Congrats! I'm waiting on an ordered unit here in GA as well. Noticed you were in Decatur just a stones throw from us. Quick ? Will you be storing your unit elsewhere. Been looking for covered storage around town if you have any good ideas!

I didn't find any covered storage, and secured parking places nearby in Decatur are in short supply. We rented an outdoor spot near Avondale for the time being, but I'm going to keep looking.

Most covered parking I know of is in the Buford Lake Lanier area
