Right after we bought the camper, we booked a major trip for Spring Break to Pontchartrain Landing RV Resort in New Orleans. We were going to jump in big on our maiden voyage but we decided to take the camper out for a test run close to home the first weekend in April 2011. So we went about 45 minutes away from home to Kings Mountain State Park right over the NC/SC line into SC. It was a great weekend. It was crisp so the camp fire was great. J's dad went with us and we just relaxed a lot and got to know our camper.
We figured out that the pack and play for Miah fits perfectly between the bunks and the wardrobe in the back so we could close the door on her. The bad news was that Miah HATED the pack and play so she screamed bloody murder for 30 minutes every time we put her down to go to sleep. But we were hopeful that she would get used to it. (Which she did).
So we were ready for New Orleans. We ventured out on our first long haul on Thursday evening after work and drove as far as Montgomery, AL where we boon-docked in a truck stop over night. I should have prefaced this with the fact that J's mother, father, and brother were also in tow for this trip so we had a FULL camper. We made it to our campground Friday afternoon and got a BEAUTIFUL site on the water. My brother-in-law was in heaven. His sole purpose for coming was to fish on that channel and fish he did.

So we parked it and started shopping again......
