Time to pay up people…we actually left in the camper…with Trevor. Yep, it’s true. We are officially in the camper full-time now, all four of us,…at least for the next month or two.
For those of you that haven’t seen the inside of our teeny-tiny trailer or for those of you that are trying to figure our how we fit our family of four in a 25 foot travel trailer, you’re in luck. I took a couple pictures.
The boys and I are excited. Trev, not so much. But the first few days, he can’t complain. We took back roads, some would call it the scenic route. Trev would call it the – hallelujah I’m not driving down I-75 with tractor trailers passing me doing 70+ mph so I’ll take the longer rural route. Whatever you call it, it was easy peasy. I even time-lapsed you a short video of the drive.
You can tell we’ve left the North Georgia mountains when you see the tall loblolly pines, the sun shining down on the cotton fields, and the flat sandy ground.
One thing we have learned real quick is that everything takes longer in the camper. We expected that to be the case so we planned to stop halfway between home and our first destination so we didn’t stress ourselves trying to do too much our first day out. We made it to our overnight stay before dark, thank heavens. We left a little after 1pm and pulled into A.H. Stephens State Park in Crawfordville, GA around 4:40pm. We knew we were only staying for the night so we didn’t even unhitch the camper. We had some dinner and went to bed. We got up the next morning and headed for our first “real” stay.
Since we were only there for the night, I don’t have too much to say about the park or that area. But I will tell you, the young man that checked us in was very polite with good manners and the campground was very quiet and extremely clean. I would stay there again if I was ever in the area.
For the most part we packed everything we’ve needed so far. Just a few little things have to be addressed, like the shower head is cracked. Not sure when or how that happened but it needs replacing. I only packed one spatula. I didn’t want to overpack but after cooking a few meals in the camper, I now realize I need another one. Small things.
Oh and in case you were wondering, yes, I was able to fit a little fa-la-la-la-lah in the camper. The boys loved the little extra Christmas lights surprise.
