Day 19 covid quarantine

Covid day 19,
It's about 12 days from when our#2020 caravan was supposed to start. We should be trying to use up all the food in our refrigerator, packing the airstream, loading up the truck and generally getting ready to embark on another multi-month long trip across the country. Visiting National parks and states we haven't been too yet. But on day 19 it's a little depressing to not be enjoying the nervous excitement of packing and getting ready for extended adventure. Don't get me wrong. We are very grateful that we are healthy, working, and using our quarantine time to increase our 2000 price puzzles skills and get some more hours as a part 107 pilot. Both things are easily done while safer at home.
So as we think about cancelling over 35 camp ground reservation and how we might salvage the summer of 2020 we just wanted to share our feelings that it's ok to be a little down for a few minutes or hours. But then think about your new 2020 season as we are confident it will be like no other season. Filled with great adventures, even if those adventures are going to the grocery store and finding toilet paper filling the shelves.

Like our posts, subscriber too the you tube channel, love each other and enjoy the everyday adventures.

First Trip completed.

Our first Trip down many more to go.
That right we completed our first trip about 2 hours aways and everything went pretty good. We got packed up and ready to leave on Sat about noon.
Friday evening we loaded up some groceries, and did our internal checklist. We did end up leaving a few items not marked complete (like leave the AC on since it was over 90F).
Saturday morning we started our external checklist reinstalling the hitch, checking awning, torquing lug nuts and adding air to the tires. By noon everything in side and outside were checked off.

We had about a 3 hour drive and arrived at Cedar key about 3pm. We grabbed our paperwork ( the office called just before 1pm to let us know they would close at 1 and we should grab our paperwork and pull into our site.) We did just that having checked out the campground layout before hand we knew exactly where to go. The spots were well marked and we pulled right in. Our first time we had to level(but really think we would have been fine without it).
What is wrong witht the AC, its hot out here.
We slowly got set up checking each step on our checklist. After connecting power we got set up and turned on the AC as the temps about 96 and it was hot out. But after the AC was on for about 1 hour it stopped. Oh crap it was way to hot to not have AC for a week or even the night. The control panel in the airstream had an error code and the surge protector had a P7 error. We quickly worked to figure out how to reset the AC ( FYI it will reset after about 2 minutes on its own) but we were trying several button configurations. to no avail. Then after giving up to regroup and look up more info the AC rest on its own. After a few hours the AirStrream cooled off and we were able to get inside and start our first camping trip. The AC and actually all the power went out several times that day and throughout the week in the hot afternoons the power would go out. (we eventually figured out the surge protector was doing its job since the Hertz were going over 60.

The rest of the trip was un eventful as we used everything, showers, toilet, stove, sink, AC, water pump and city water, hot water heater, everything we could. It all worked as it should and our first trip was amazing. MaryAnn was even heard saying this wasnt camping it was staying in fancy hotel room outside in nature.
The truck did great getting 14.7 MPG pulling the trailer even through stop and go traffic for 2 hours.

Getting ready for our new Air Stream RV.

Here is a list of all the stuff we gathered together for our new Air Stream

We thought we would be picking up our Air Stream  at the end of March 2018 but after it was damaged being unloaded from factory we are still waiting for our trailer. But that has provided us more time to prepare. We a trying to not buy much in order to verify what we need. When we bought our boat it came with everything we needed as the couple lived in it for 4 years in the Bahamas so we didnt have to go through the trouble to figure out what we needed or where to put it. I am kind of looking forward to doing this in the RV.

Camping Equipment:
    Progressive power surge protector
    Dual 30 amp to 50 amp converter.
    Drinking water hose
    Charcoal drinking water filter
    20' dual connection sewer hose and connectors

Internet Connectivity
    Weboost OTR from Wilson

Misc items:
    Velcro straps multi sizes
    3M command strip towel holder

We did it!

Thats right we did it. 

We went to the Tampa RV show on Friday  Jan 19th. Today Jan 21st we were able to make a deal on a 30' Flying Cloud RB. We are now Airstream owners.

We are very excited but also a little nervous. Not about the new trailer but all the stuff we have to do.
Below is the short list of things we have to do

  • Buy a truck - we waited to until we settled on a trailer before we bought a truck to make sure we matched the truck to the trailer.
  • Find someplace to keep the trailer once we bring it home.
  • Start to plan some trips
Well a little anticlimactic day since we did everything via phone and email and while we sit here and watch videos on the Flying Clouds and create lists of all the things we now have to do to get ready to pick up or trailer by about April.

Airstream 2018.5 30' Flying Cloud RB

Still have to figure out how to set up and office in the bedroom so I can work from the road. Which means we have to put on Cell phone booster, get a big antena and see if we need a router and wifi booster. We expect to mostly be in campgrounds to get started but need good connectivity to keep working fora few more years before we go snowbird.

Well will be hard to sleep tonight and a busy week trying to get these things started so thats all for today.
