Our New Home Base

We were up at the crack of dawn this morning for several reasons. One being we were traveling to our new home base. The adrenalin was flowing with our excitement of pulling into our new site with full hookups. Another reason for up so early was we wanted to travel in the early morning hours as it was much cooler. We arrived in Lone Star a little before 9am. (click on photos to enlarge)

imageThe area where we park the home is a black top circular drive. You enter one drive and exit the second. We had to make several attempts of jockeying the home so we would be able to reach the sewer drain with our 20ft sewer hose. The 50amp electric cable and 25ft water hose presented no problem as they both were long enough. All of our hookups are located in the same general area.
After we found the right spot we marked the drivers front and rear tires with orange paint so we can find the correct spot when we leave and return.

imageI marked the drive so Sandy could line up and hit the spots without to much difficulty. After that I took my multi-meter and checked the 50amp receptacle to assure myself it was wired correctly. Better to be safe than sorry. Everything checked okay and we plugged in. It sure was nice to have the breaker in the box that allowed me to turn the power to the box off before plugging in.

After everything was set up we loaded into the Jeep and headed to Mt Pleasant for groceries for Sandy's Mom and us. We got back around 3pm and started the task of moving our stepping stones, bird feeders, flag pole and wind mill over to our new site. We both love our new spot and look forward to working toward getting it like the way we want it to be someday.


Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
