Unfortunately, until the renovation is done, this is from the one and only camping trip I've done in Knight.

If you think about it, it shows the work in progress on a little trailer that you can just tell is going to be used and used well.

Yeah, I knew this would attract all you polishers out there. But it is a wide open category. Right now I am reflecting on why in the world did I try to win?

Awesome!

You've got a pretty unique little trailer there. What is she, 14 feet?

This was on our first ever Airstream trip, to our local Provincial Park. My neighbour, who knows his way around a travel trailer, suggested that we might not want to go camping in April as the weather was usually a bit iffy. But I knew best, as usual, and we set off with high hopes. The first night was a fright; it rained and blew and rained and blew and I'm certain I didn't sleep a wink for the hammering of the deluge on the roof. This picture was taken as we were settling in for the second night and I had no idea that with a longish exposure, the lights would reflect on the clean aluminium skin of the trailer as they did; it certainly wasn't apparent to naked eye. Anyway, a tidy campsite, darkening skies and some gay (in its original meaning) lighting made for quite a nice reminder of that first weekend.

As it turned out, rain and wind were to be a feature of our first year's camping!

Hi guys, was this in Goose Island or right there in Rockport somewhere?
