GETTING TRAVEL TRAILER aka Violet READY FOR HER MAIDEN VOYAGE

These are excited times for me!!!Just Got Home with Violet Aug 24 2017

On my way home from going to Missouri for the total, solar eclipse, I bought my 1996 Aerolite 25′ travel trailer, aka VIOLET, in the Memphis area off of craigslist!! (after much research and avoiding a couple of scams)

She’s kinda old but in great shape for an older gal. We have been doing a few things to get her ready for camping. My husband, as I’ve said many times, can fix anything. And, even though this camper is kinda “my thing”, he has really stepped in to help like he always does. He is very special! For one big thing, he doesn’t discourage me from following a dream.

We have traveled a lot over our 24 years together before and after we got our Class C motorhome. We’ve been  all over the lower 48 together, as well as Hawaii, Jamaica, and Canada. During our married life, my youngest daughter and I have been to Europe twice. When hubby and I went through Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier and between, on our way to Seattle and British Columbia, we traveled in our motorhome. It is very comfortable, but their were two things we didn’t care for: 1) the terrible gas mileage and 2) not wanting to tow a vehicle and, therefore, not having a separate vehicle for errands and site-seeing.

Now we have retired to the country, so hubby is over his desire to travel (except maybe for one more trip to the Lobster Fest in Rockland, Maine), is content staying home with the animals who need care, and does not mind me continuing to travel. I plan to travel with family or girlfriends or solo with my grand-dog Annabelle, who now lives with us.

Annabelle January 31 (3)So, we’ve been getting Violet ready for camping… she needed a battery, a few light bulbs, the light fixtures washed, a license plate mounted, cabinets cleaned out and sanitized, a leak fixed under the kitchen sink, and the kitchen sink unclogged. We tried to open the awning for the first time today, and it looks usable but with some work on the frame connections. And, we ordered a spare tire.
