So very glad you've had a great "first" trip. It's been grand right. And thanks so much for sharing the pictures and taking us all along on your travels.

Continued safe travels, always.
You were right Donna. You always say "make memories" and although I usually blow that off as a cliche, this trip was full of them. Thanks for reminding me that the journey is the goal, not the destination. Cheers!

Feels good coming and going. What could be better?

You're right Glenn. I caught the bug before I ordered Past Tents. It has now turned into a chronic condition. Can't wait for our next journey.

Hi Robert and Yolanda,
We so enjoyed your trip out and back. Photos were a big plus!
We still have 4 1/2 months to go until we leave for our pick up trip to Chilliwack.
By seeing all that you all have gone through between build sheets and all the discussions with everyone on the forum we certainly feel confident on our decision on our trailer and are looking forward to meeting all that will be at the Bluebonnet rally in a few weeks! Certainly after that some of what we currently have on our build sheet will change some. It's always a big plus to see how others have done things and use them.
