First Camping Trip - Success!!

After acquiring our new/old Airstream in November, we got to take her out over SEC Championship weekend outside of Atlanta at Stone Mountain Park. This was close to "stuff" should we encounter any issues. Nighttime lows Saturday evening were going to be around 25 F so we were definitely going to put Melody through her paces. The prior owner, Chris, and his daughter came out Saturday morning to make sure we survived Friday night and answered a bunch of questions for us newbs. First even non tent camp and we did it in style with an Airstream! wOOt!!
