Our New Family Toy...

...brought to "us" by ME!  If you have been a long time follower of my blog, you may recall reading that my husband L-O-V-E-S toys.  Dirt bikes.  Snowmobiles.  4-Wheelers.  Boats.  Jet Skis.  Vehicles.  Buying, selling, and trading is a hobby to him.  A hobby, that from time to time, is profitable as well (not to worry....I am not talking in an illegal way).  However, our recent "toy" purchase was initiated by yours truly....   

....a 2007, 29 foot Jayco Travel Trailer

Let me start by saying, I enjoy camping.  Exploring, bike riding, campfires, cooking over an open flame, relaxing (if possible), and the ever so popular S'mores!  I consider myself pretty tolerable of public shower rooms with proper foot attire in place.  The younger version of myself has done her fair share of tent camping.  No complaints.  The older version...well, the older version gets a tad bit irritable when her bitties cannot settle for a nap.  Truth be told, I put on my own cranky pants when I am without AC for my nighttime slumber.  A bigger truth?  Six people camping = A LOT of stuff!!!  About a month ago, as I sat writing our packing list for our June 6 days/5 nights camping trip, I cringed.  I sighed.  I looked at our 80's ($250) pop up camper and thought "no way". 

Earlier in the year, Eric and I had agreed our pop up would suffice for our trip.  With pen to paper, I was having conflicting thoughts.  I, promptly, called Eric (at work) and left him a message more or less demanding a newer travel trailer prior to our trip.  With no additional loans outside of our house and his school debt, I was prepared to "fight" if need be.  Thankfully, our biggest battle over my want was how many bunks our trailer should contain.  We, rather peacefully, agreed on a used (in excellent condition) Jayco travel trailer.  

Take a look around... 
   








Last Thursday night, we returned home from our maiden voyage with her (stay tuned for multiple posts on our Silver Lake trip).  She served us well with her ample storage, comfortable sleeping quarters, and microwave to heat up Hudson's milk (who still prefers it warm).  From here on out, it is happy trails for the Lindsay Family once we set up camp.  The actual traveling?  Well, that is an area we need work on!

Yay! Glad her maiden voyage went well! We recently traded our trailer in for a smaller lighter one that had bunkbeds. But NEITHER of my kids will sleep in them! :-S Can't wait to see more pictures from your trip!
