Today was moving day all over again. Because of the flooding potential, and the daily drive, we decided that living in Cisco would be better for us, even though we loved the lake and the view.
It too a while to get the rig ready for travel with all the extra stuff we now had. I managed to find a place for most everything, and some stuff we put in my car.
We finally pulled out about 12.
Tony pulling Mammoth ahead of me as we drive through the park. This spot was completely covered in 1ft or more of flood waters just a few weeks ago.
We stopped at the Shell station before getting on I-20 to check tires and make sure everything was ok. The drive is not far, but the Mammoth is pretty heavy, I can tell!
We got to the new park in Cisco about 12:45, and it was already pretty hot outside. We got the AC going and decided to wait to unhitch until after we ate. Tony ran and picked up some food, and we ate in the bedroom under the dump of the AC.
After resting for about 15 minutes, we began to tackle unhitching and leveling. We discovered the site is very unlevel, it slopes down front to back and is a little higher on the door side. With our Ground Control System and some trial and error, we finally got her set up. We had a little issue unhitching the pin, too, because of the tilt and slope. The jaws did not want to open. Finally with much up and down and angled adjusting, the jaws opened enough so we tried to drive out. Yay, it worked! Since this hitch is still new to us, it was a learning experience.
Finally, we got the slides out and set up.
See how high she is in front?
This is not the same area we were in last time here, it's actually behind the office area almost the next block.thats good because there are trees and buildings between us and I-20, so you don't really hear the road noise. Right now we are the only ones in this area of the park. Potentially we could have 4 or so more.
Tony starts band camp tomorrow, so I'll start working and settling in. Good news is the cell service is excellent, within sight of a tower less than 1/4 mile away. No wifi at the park yet, but it's coming, they say.
Whew! Good to be HOME. Now to make it that!
