So....If you read my post about our last camping trip you will know that 5 of us and a dog in a tent was not ideal. On the way back from that trip we looked on Facebook and saw that Josh's Aunt Sandra was selling a travel trailer. It was a sign. A few weeks later we found ourselves loaded up in the truck heading to Kentucky to pick up Sandra's trailer.
Our inaugural camping trip to Lake Fontana was a success. We had a great time, everyone slept well and we were very comfortable. When we woke up Myles said, "I really like the trailer but it's not really camping". Right you are, my boy. I told him he could pitch a tent in the front of the trailer anytime.
So, long gone are the days of our light-weight backpacking tents. Goodbye, 8 man tent. Hello, travel trailer and all the comforts of home. I never thought I would be "camping" this way. I'm getting old.
There she blows. The 1985 Sea Hawk. Josh and I are still working on getting the awning up. As you can see we didn't have it quite right but rather than get a divorce over putting the darn thing up, we left it askew.
Another view of the beast.

Our campsite. We were right below the dam (largest dam east of the Mississippi).
I love my nature boy. He always stops to enjoy the natural wonders around him. Here he is at the Lazy River studying a butterfly.
