    My wife and our three little-ones just came back from a short weekend trip actually an overnight trip.
    Remember. I was having all types of troubles with my Endeavour and Rving was starting to become a hastle. The RV place did a fantastic job. I took it to the shop on Wed morning they had it fixed by thursday night, however I was not able to find time to get it until Saturday morning.
    We had a fun time driving to the State Park. We where met with the coolest personel at the gate. They took the time to show us the place and gave us their number to call if I could not find the place or if I needed any help. They where serious when they say we will help you. We noticed a couple who where having problems with their 5th wheeler. They had four state park personel helping. They must have been there several hours in the hot sun. They gave us the perfect spot with shade and close to the water. Everything worked this time. I was able to set-up in 20 minutes.
    before we knew it I was off with the two older ones on a hike. Our smallest had fallen sleep. Alicia had to stay behind, that was fine by her. She was able to sleep and do a little reading.
    Night came everything was going well. The kids had fallen sleep early. Alicia and I poped open some Cold beers (Modelo Special ). We where having a cool conversation when Alicia jumped up and ran in the Rv. She had spoted a man eating racoon.
    Sunday morning. We got pu early, Well Alicia and the kids where up early. We made chorizo and eggs with refried beans and flour tortillas. Cleaned up and went on a several mile hike, rememner our kids are 6,4 and 2. We unpluged. The kids fell sleep. They slept all the way home. NOW that was a fun little trip.

    See Domingo, they told you to give it time. It sounds like you had an awesome weekend. Just one question. Was it a man eating a racoon or a racoon that might eat a man? :clown: :evil: :kiss: :) :laugh: lol

    OK. The joke is on me. It does tastes like chicken however to make it taste better we add a little Tabasco.

    Wife hasnt had possum and she did not care for rattlesnake but I think that is only cuz she dont like snakes period. But I enjoy both so not a problem. If we can plan the gt for a time when I is not working I will luv to come join in the festivities.

    RE: RV fun

    Hi Domingo
    It sounds like you had fun and things are going better. My wife and I just got back from our first trip.
    We just wanted to take our 5er out for a weekend and run all the systems and see how things work. When I was pulling into the rv park I was making a right turn and all of the sudden it felt like I had run up on a curb, the trailer would not go anywhere. There was a a guy in a golf cart that was there, thank goodness, who said I had not hit anything. I got out to look and he said "there is your problem, your emergency cable got caught up and pulled out". Well sir, thats what it was. I was dead in the middle of the driveway. I put it back in the slot, pumped the breaks and was on my way.
    The rest of the week was great. I guess everyone has to go through some kind of initiation when they start out.
    My next thing is to deal with the place I bought it from. They now seem to have forgotten many of the things they promised when I bought it.
    Happy camping to all.
    Brad
