Day #1 Recap

Today we left home and headed to Lebanon, PA (not far from Hershey PA). We got out a tiny bit later than we wanted, but when you are leaving home for 2 weeks, you can't just rush out. Clothing needs to be packed, food needs to be prepared, sporting equipment needs to be chosen etc etc. 6 people for 10 days = 60 pairs of underpants. That's a lot of underpants. Ilana quarterbacked the packing effort, and did an amazing job. The only thing we seem to have forgotten are plastic table cloths, so all in all I'd say she did really well.

Driving the RV was pretty easy once I got off local streets. On the highway, changing lanes was a bit of a challenge, but I got the hang of it once we spent a little more time on the highway. The drive is also pretty smooth. Ilana was tired, so she actually went into the master bedroom for a nap while I pounded out 100 miles.

We got to the RV park a little later than we wanted and it was after dark, so honestly I have no idea what the outside looks like. We'll try to get some pictures in the morning. I had a bit of trouble with the water hookup (no poop cleaning just yet), but got it sorted out pretty quickly. Apparently, the Fetzer valve doesn't connect to the Johnson rod as would typically be expected, or else I would have gotten it right the first time.

The RV is really nice. It's pretty spacious, has central air, 4 satellite TVs, shower, bathroom and sleeps 11. It's designed really well, and we're eating and sleeping really comfortably.

So far no meltdowns (kids or adult).

One of Ilanas favorite parts of the RV is that once something is in the RV, it's in. We don't have to pack and repack.

We're exhausted, and going to sleep.
