Sunday, May 14, 2023 - Home, 0 Miles, 0 Miles For The Trip

Once again it is time for a trip to New Hampshire and the Spring Fling, a fiberglass trailer rally at the Chocorua Camping Village KOA. As usual, I will be meeting my friends Anne & Guido on the way, and camp next door to them at the rally.

A bit more to do to get the trailer ready this year since I stayed in Oswego over the winter rather than my usual trip to the southwest. I uncovered the trailer at the beginning of the month, managed to find a couple of dry, warm days to wash & wax the trailer, and made a few minor repairs. I replaces the ANL fuse that Escape provided with a Class T fuse that better protects the inverter, and replaced an intermittent remote for the inverter.

Lots of "other than trailer" projects here at home. My front yard is (well, was) filled with ash trees (19 of them). The Emerald Ash Borer has finally reached Oswego, and over half the trees are dead. I got a couple of estimates, and now they are all gone. Still waiting for the grass to start growing, then I'll plant a couple of fruit trees to replace them.

I added a raised bed garden next to the rear deck - while the large garden out back is still fenced (barely) it is too large for my current needs and something closer to the house works better. The asparagus is already started, and I'll plant some tomatoes, beans & cucumbers when I get back from the Spring Fling.

No More Ash Trees The Raised Beds

I'm finishing off loading the trailer using my 4 page packing list. There are a number of items I still use that will have to wait until Tuesday morning, and I'll pack the truck on Monday, but other than that I'm ready to go. For those interested is statistics, the starting mileage on the truck is 60,493, a bit more by Tuesday, and the trailer is at 43,123.3 miles. I've slept in the trailer 978 nights.

Until next time.
