The Last 5.0 is home!

We picked up the "Last 5.0" on Thursday. Donna and I barely slept Wednesday night so we were in great shape for the orientation.
It flew by so fast and we comprehended less than we had hoped. Luckily we had booked a trailer pulling lesson from the Euro Driving School. A patient instructor name Attila, who runs the driving school methodically ran us through a second orientation and told us many things left out at ETI. It was five hours later when he left us but he left us with confidence in our abilities. It was 5 o'clock and raining when he left us so rather than go home we stayed the night at the nearby Best Western Hotel where we spent the night before picking the trailer up.

You were concerned about threading the eye of the needle. But no dings, I presume. Congrats.

Almost finished????

Kim just sent the latest photos of Teachers' Pet. I'm wondering what else needs to be done? It looks complete to me.

Thanks for sharing! It is always fun seeing what we have done to 'customize' our Escapes.
