I loved the send-off your neighbors gave you...it's very cool to have neighbors who would think to be there to send you off properly! Good for them...
Yes - it was a great first trip and indeed this is a really cool neighborhood. We couldn't have had better neighbors if we hand picked each of them! It's a fun place to live!

Here's a pic of the champagne dousing.

Cool! So have you had the neighbors in for a grand tour? I'm sure they'd like that...

Glad you had fun...

Yes - they were all in for a grand tour which started as soon as we got it home. Our house sits at the edge of a mesa in plain view of a sizable portion of the neighborhood. So, everyone was able to see that it was finally here. Within minutes of getting it home, they all started coming over (with wine bottles and glasses in hand) to see it.

Sounds like a "partying" neighborhood! That's a good thing! Nice to have good neighbors who can enjoy your version of the good life with you...

I did the same thing, but checked it one more time before I plugged the trailer and did no damageóand I'm not a real electrician. Now I don't feel quite so dumb. I sure hope that guy paid for the damage to the trailer's electrical system, and I hope everything was checked thoroughly so nothing shows up later.

Sounds like your first trip was great. Congratulations.

Congratulations on your maiden voyage

Hey Jim and Rod,

Bill and I are thrilled that your electrical problem was resolved and that you had a wonderful trip.

We just returned from a trip to William Heise County Park in the mountains by Julian, CA. At a View Point stop, we discovered that the top 2 of the 3 credenza drawers had slid open and dropped out landing right-side up. Luckily nothing was damaged other than a chipped glass votive candle holder. A bungee cord secured the drawers for the trip home. Earlier this year, a kitchen pantry cabinet opened while in transit spilling some plastic containers. A plastic bottle of cooking oil had lost its lid leaving a small mess on the floor. Thank goodness we do not have carpeting. That cabinet is now secured with a bungee cord hooked to the exhaust fan hood.

Wishing you both happy trails,

Larry and Bill

The opening cabinet drawers you guys have experienced is a good reminder that a bumpy road can bounce them open. I'll have to pay more attention to that. Thanks for the tips.
