Rated R cartoons, interesting. I can't even get into The Simpson's because of the way Bart acts, really disliked Beavis and Butthead if that's still on. Love King of the Hill though.

But to stay on subject, bet those guys on King of the Hill would be a good group to go camping with.

What kind of hitch set up are you looking at?
I got the 1,000/10,000 lb. Equal-i-zer from the RV Dealer, everyone tells me it's the best one to use it takes care of weight Distribution and sway control so that eases some of my towing worries, I got the Valley Odyssey Brake Controller and again everyone tells me thats a superb controller. Esther and I have been shopping for all the camping goodies, Esther filled the cart with flatware, pots, pans, mixing bowls, toiletries etc etc etc,, I picked out the Awning lights <--the vehicle and camper lights I picked out...

<--the Dishes and Bowls Esther picked out,,Isn't she sumptin'?...

Well as you can probably tell we're having fun getting ready for the first adventure...

Sounds good, having a proper set up is everything when it comes to towing a big trailer.

It's amazing how much you can spend just getting one ready to go. After three years of outfitting I think we finally have ours where we want it. At first we loaded everything but the kitchen sink then found out we weren’t using half of it so last year I went through and unloaded everything that wasn't used regularly.

Now camp life is good.

Yeah it seems like we keep forgetting the littlest things that we know we should have, (First-Aid kit, batteries, citronella candles, insect sprays those little things ) so each time we shop we gather the things we think are essential but I think we're about ready to head out and go for a weekend get-a-way to give the camper a try. She's on the phone as I type, making reservations at a campground on the New Jersey shore for 3 nights and 4 days in April... That's 410 miles one way so that should be a good starter run. Wish us luck

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

That's one heck of a starter run alright. The only problem I have with he long runs is on the Interstate dealing with the big trucks, they tend to get the rig a little squirley if I don't watch the speed or don't see them coming. The manual trailer brake is a life saver.
