For the past month, we’ve been living exclusively outdoors and sleeping on a magic carpet. At least that’s how it felt.
Our plan was to take the new popup travel trailer on a serious shakedown trip, and in the process, escape the when-will-this-be-over heat of coastal Georgia.
After a month on the road in the northern USA, where we enjoyed cool weather and lots of Roadside Americana, we’re happy to report that both goals have been accomplished.
Even though handling the new rig presented a steep learning curve (towing, backing, setup, and stowing), we’ve put it through its paces and are now comfortable with it. There’s no denying that it’s considerably more complicated than a 9X7 tent, but the added comfort is just what we wanted.
It’s pretty cozy sleeping on a queen-size bed (avec soft mattress), hovering in the air, magic-carpet style, and knowing that we’ll stay high and dry.
But, we’re back home now shifting gears again, getting ready to head back out on the road. Where to, you may ask? Well let’s just say that the Polish zlotys aren’t the only new currency we’ll be tackling. Stay tuned.
