I've been seeing photos from southern Utah here lately and it's really got my interest. The closest we've come to seeing that kind of terrain, but on a much smaller scale, is the badlands in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, which is just a few hours south of us and we've been back a couple times..

Utah may be our spring trip next year.

Shoot, look at all the room! I drove through that CG last March and most of the sites looked about 1/2 that length or less. That is a sweet location!

Actually this was the view out my side window for 4 evenings at Hickory Creek COE CG near Lowell AR. The marina on Beaver Lake.

Late season camping on VI

We did zero camping in the summer. I spent a good part of the late summer, early fall converting our 2005 17B from the stock single group 27 12V to a pair of 240Ah 6V Lead carbon batteries. Installed a BMV-712 and upgraded to a 35A Progressive Dynamics Inteli-power converter/charger. I also spliced in a remote pendant as we keep the rear dinette converted to a bed and it would be nearly impossible to monitor the LED on the 12V board.


We have now been out 2 times for 5 days and 4 nights running the furnace etc, and have not reached a 60% SOC yet. This last trip, I tested our 2200 watt gen for a 2 hour period to simulate a Provincial Park and it brought the batteries back up to a 82% SOC.


Hope to squeeze at least one more trip in before the weather gets into regular freezing.

Nothing exciting out the back window on this trip from MA to VA, but FWIW:

Overnight at Pickerel Point at Promised Land State Park in PA:

. . . And, overnight at Cunningham Falls State Park on Rt. 15 in MD.

The site at the Cunningham Falls Manor Campground proved a little challenging, pushing the Escape up over slick leaves. But managed to achieve a level perch, without unhitching. There are better sites there.

Yikes! I gotta "level" with you.

I don't know if it is perspective, photo angle, or whatnot, but the last image suggests you'll not be on the level.
Tipsy, topsy turvy.
Rest well.

Yes, it was the camera that over-dramatized the situation. Here's a shot from the trailer side:
