We will be leaving end of next week on are long planed vacation to see my sister in Idaho. Started planing it in Dec. Sad part of the story was my nephew killed himself. Were going to go but she said to stay home and come up in the summer. She get's snowed in every year only way in or out with snow machines. Back to why I'm nuts finally got the trailer all packed. Extra water, extra batteries, extra propane, etc etc extra as well. Be taken our grandson, two cats, a Great Pyrenees and the three of us. All in the Adv-116DS. our route will be taken us from Texas thru New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, then Idaho. Trip back thru Nevada and California. Other family to see then straight home thru far south Arizona and New Mexico finally back to Texas. We made this trip 6 years ago. Glad my sister has a four wheel for us to get in the last mile the road is super bad and narrow with rock out crops. Think its really a horse trail.

That was one heck of a post and one heck of a planned trip!

Good luck & keep us posted,

Well think every thing is packed and put away in the TC. The trailer is all set, it's either strapped, tied, or welded so everything should ride. Lastly to load before we pull out of San Antonio is load a few days of food, our meds and get the grandson to get his clothes and such ready. Today I hooked the trailer up to the truck and ran a check on the lights. No trailer lights at all and when I put the right on both turn lights on the camper would blink. I was stumped for the trailer and truck each passed the inspection stations in the last month???? I was lucky it was a 20 min fix, the connector between the two a wire had come undone. Should be pulling out by 6pm its been a scorcher the last three weeks the coldest it had been down too is 92. Beginning to think were in Phoenix.

You should come up I35 and I29, and over on I80 or 90 and color in a few more states on your map!!
I have been a tent camper since my Boy Scout days long, long, ago. Now I need to get up off of the cold ground to get a good nights rest, a truck camper seems to be the best choice. I am here to learn as much as I can.
