So,... instead of this,.....
We got this,......
A cruise will happen in the future when we can save back up for the trip. Projecting Summer of 2019, so we can go with some friends.
So, while that took place, we emailed and called friends about camping opportunities and calendar openings to try and coordinate some fun times this year. I hope to fill the calendar with a few more dates and possibly a Passport 217 Rally Weekend if we can get schedules to align. I know of two other 217 owners just in our local area.
So far, we have the following scheduled. (no particular order, just how I remember them at the moment)
- Little Red Barn, Quakertown, PA (2 nights)
- Lake In Wood, Narvon, PA (4 nights) ** Near Shady Maple :-)
- Assateague State Park, Maryland (6 nights - Dry Camping)
- Lake Glory Campground @ Knoebels, Elysburg, PA (3 Nights - Summer) (3 Nights - Fall)
- Mountain Springs Campground, Shartlesville, PA (2 Nights)
So, that's a total of 20 Nights camping, with still lots of multiple week gaps in our schedule.
Also, another winter season gets us thinking about a few minor things we want to add or fix up on the camper. Besides regular maintenance items that we will have to check in the spring (roof seals, windows, screens, etc.) we would like to add an LED light strip below our awning. The newer productions of our model year did away with the amber porch light and have an LED strip, which is nice, but also we like our porch light. So if we add a LED strip it will give us the best of both worlds for our camping experience.
That's it for now,... back to work. Counting the days till April!
