We also decided it was time we weigh the Pod. Figured it would be a good thing to know. Again, the service guy from Camping World didn't know about the scale....... (think he was fibbing) but we figured it out. And the Pod weighs 6100 pounds. That is kind of empty............ so we will reweigh it when we are loaded for camping in April.
So we got it home........... put it up on wood and cinder blocks and put the tire covers on. Not coving it this year (warranty again) And we plan to use it and do some work in it over the winter. I like a bookcase i saw on one of the forums that was in the corner. IF I can find that I may attempt a shorter one. I want to move the glasses and put a dish rack in the cabinet. And really want 1/2 the booth out. Still looking at that. May get some storage bins for where the recliner was. I don't want anything above the window.
Right now the curtains are in the alteration shop being fixed. Can't wait to see them when they are done. Putting them in the bedroom too!!!
Another thing.............. have been in contact with Leonard & Sondra from St Louis and meeting them for lunch on the 27th when we go up. I am so excited about that!!!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!!!!

My thoughts about winter time modifications..We come out of our 1 year warranty on 27 March SOOOOOOOOOO.................. We have already removed one of the recliners ... we found we weren't using it. Going to put some storage boxes there and then cover them with a tablecloth............. or even the cushion from the bench :) because I believe I am going to take out 1/2 of the booth. And get 2 chairs. The only thing we stored under there was extra tarps. IF we need that sleep area we can make a pallet on the floor :)
I am going to move the glasses to over the television. Then I am going to buy a dishrack (the kind that only hold dishes) and put it in the cabinet where the plates are. Right now I need a stepstool to get plates. I think this might be easier. We have an extra table top that Jeff is going to cut to fit over the stove ..... have that measured now if we could just get a bit of heat here. Also going to make a tray to use just one pole of the table. CONSIDERING bringing in a heavy duty extension cord through the hole where the power cord comes out. Not sure if I want to do that. Need to figure out the satellite.............. would like it in both rooms.
I like the idea of plexiglass in the screen doors......... and a screen door latch.
that is it for right now.

Last night we had our first storm of the season. Not much snow but it was windy and very cold. Got up this morning and when Jeff went outside this is what he saw:

Needless to say we have had a wonderful season. We plan on going further next year for vacation. South Dakota and maybe even attending a Dutch Oven Gathering. (wonders will never cease)
The other thing that I learned was not everyone likes camping and really doesn't want to hear about it. Poor them........... they really should get out into the great outdoors.

Made more reservations today.......... going to Jellystone in Eureka for Earth Day. My guess is that this will be like a Disney Cruise. I will only do it once :) ................. I just wanted to do something different for Earth Day. Maybe we will go into St Louis and then again maybe we won't.
The weather is wonderful in the low 70's. We will pay for this sooner or later.

Also made our first reservations for next season. We are going to open on the first weekend of April (will probably need heat) 1-3. We will be going to our first Corps of Engineers campground at Shell Knob Missouri. Made reservations for May also at Pomme de Terre they are having the Rendevous. Not sure what this is BUT!!!!! Having trouble contacting Jellystone to make reservations for EarthDay weekend.
We got the scooters. Jeff traded in his Sabre for 2 scooters. I love mine. It is small ............. doesn't go very fast but I don't have to work hard to ride it. I think we can take them camping most everywhere. We have been riding when the weather has allowed. I have a 49 CC and Jeff has a 125 CC.
He is great to have done that...................... :)
We saw a Montana today...5th wheel with the living room in the front of the trailer (over the truck) Loved the layout.
I pulled the Pod for the first time. on the interstate from Cuba to Buckhorn then up to the cemetary. That would be at least 50 miles on the interstate, one stop sign & one yield sign. Very proud of myself and I think Jeff was proud of me too!!!
We stopped in Cuba today and looked at scooters. I am 90% sure I want one.
Also bought the first holiday decorations for the Pod........ Halloween stuff!!!
We fire sat two nights with friends. We were at Site 218-- full hook up it was a nice site up on a small hill.
19-23 July..... we kayaked and hiked and rested and zip lined the entire week. Went to bed early slept late. No cell service, no internet, but we did have TV. With a bit of trouble. This is where we had our first storm while staying it it. Not a good time but it was ok. A nice neighbor shuttled us to Alley Springs to float back to Circle B. That was nice. There are awesome people out there. We gave her a card. We carry cards with our name, email, facebook info on it. (I will put the blog address on next) We cooked lots of good things in foil or on the grill. We modified the way the lights hang on the awning by putying our lights on a PVC pipe ... it is easier to put them out and take them down.
My dad passed away June 26th while we were in Springfield getting the windows tinted. Sometime maybe I will blog about that trip.
