Well, I done did it....!!!! with 3 kids...!
Well, I done did it! With 3 kids for 4238.4 miles. 12 states. Numerous family members, cousins, dirt bikes, beautiful vistas.... an appreciation for this country of ours like never before... and of course, a million AS memories that will likely fade but doubtlessly grow to have that perfect hue that very few ever could hope to achieve. So nice....!!!!!
Pulled SilverToy for 3700 +/- of the nearly 4300 miles and NO mishaps. Only the poorly designed Stone Guards that came off ( 1st at mile 84, 2nd at mile 2900 or so) but all else worked as advertised or better. No huge mistakes that I as a "newbie camper" made.... OK, there were 2! Ran over the BAL tire locking chock when I failed to remove it and flooded the bathroom a tiny bit when I got involved removing a Striped Whipsnake from underneath the unit. Other than that all was GREAT!
BTW, saw 28 Airstreams the WHOLE trip, 2 of which were triples like SilverToy and Zillions of SOB's....
Kids LOVED the trailer experience, which was a BIG deal for me. Hoped for the best, and my desires were exceeded to such a degree I can't say.... Whew! What we saw!
NM, TX, OK, MS, IL, IN, MI, IN, IL, IA, MN, SD, WY, NE, CO, NM...home!
Will try to post photos taken on the trip and will post experiences (good and bad) about sites elsewhere. Just to let those that care know we made it back in fine shape! Thanks for paying attention to that that are! Appreciate it!
Ciao and good night!
