  • On the Road Again (well, sort of :-) )

    thumbnail

    We were finally able to get the new fifth wheel out for a (really short) shakedown run over the weekend and find out all of the things we need for travel but don’t have (or can’t find).  Weather was nice (a rare thing for the St. Louis area in June 2015), trailer is roomy and comfortable, had some time totally away from work and technology.  Overall a great weekend (of course, my weekends with Connie are all great) – everything […]
