Our Maiden Voyage was a success!

We left about 1100 on Saturday, stopped by Walmart in Gardnerville to pick up a few things and off we went.  Only about 30 minutes from Gardnerville, but it was lunch time so we pulled over on Hwy 88 and had our sandwiches.

Our lunch spot!  Not too bad a view huh?

Our spot #23...
 Got to Turtle Rock County Park and for $10.00 a night (because someone in this household is 62) we stayed in this beautiful campsite.  The site has water and there is flush toilets and a shower house (we didn't use that as we have our own)...really nice and very few people camping here! 

Ken bar b quing delicious turkey burgers!

The new trailer has an electric awning...awesome!

Indian Creek Resovoir...not much to see...
 On Sunday we got up and took a short ride to Markleeville to get ice and then another short ride to Indian Creek Resovoir...they have campgrounds but a little too busy for our liking...so back to camp..enjoyed the sunshine and then later in the afternoon watched Wedding Crashers on Ken's 10" dvd player...just because we could!   Later we had a nice fire and Ken bar b qued turkey burgers again and again they were awesome! 
Our Camper and truck this am before we left :(

Got up this am and had a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs, cheese and grits! YUMM!!  Took our time getting ready and then we were home by 1400...nice!  

You always expect a few things with a trailer so that's why we wanted this shakedown trip...we found under the jacknife couch the heat ducting is ripped in an area pretty good size little hole..so we covered it up..not hurting anything, except no reason to heat the interior of the couch :)

So all in all we're pretty impressed with everything!  

Tomorrow we head for Reno to get steps and the trailer brakes on the new truck!
