Life lessons

Lesson learned - when arriving at your camping spot (ours is currently a fairgrounds), make sure the electric works BEFORE completing set up.
We plugged in to get the air running first and then went on to disconnecting and leveling the coach. It was near 100. After set up, we saw that the EMS system was showing a code- therefore, no power.
Now, we had to close up, reconnect and move to a new spot. You better believe, we checked the voltage first before setting up again.

rynosback, NC Hauler enjoy wild and wonderful West Virginia. Rynosback hope you see Black Water Falls, I've always wanted to get up there, maybe some time soon. NC Hauler, we used to camp just outside of Talcott. My in-laws had a camp there and we kept a 21 ft travel trailer there.

The CG I am at is about 2 miles from Blackwater Falks. We hiked 3 trails today there. We even saw a Mother black bear with 3 cubs. It is a beautiful park.

I grew up in Beckley WVa and have fished Greenbriar River all through the Talcott/ Pence Springs area. Our property is in Pence Springs. You ever get up this way again ... let me know.
