Cozy Acres Campground - Powhatan, VA
It's time to start the adventure! We had a wonderful week moochdocking at a friend's house as we finalized moving into Maggie (the RV).

We had to raise the front left tires on blocks due friend's driveway. When we were ready to turn around in their driveway, we found that the tire pressure did not correctly set itself. Luckily we saw this before we turned the wheels. To fix the problem, we finally found that when we dumped the air in the tag, the coach corrently raised the coach to be able to drive.
Watch that the coach is appropriately raised before driving

I think we finally got most things put away and figured out both the cell phone/wifi boosters. It's now time to start just full-living in an RV πŸ™‚

Is the weekend already over? Please say no... Well... Time to get the day going and to really start using the new Traeger grill. I'm going to try out something other than ribs. Tonight's dinner? Sweet & Smokey Barbacoa Pulled Pork

Had a great week. This campground is really quiet and quite nice. There are a number of ponds and cows in a pasture to walk by.

Four Seasons Campground - Pilesgrove, NJ
Had a nice start on our day traveling from Richmond, VA to Pilesgrove, NJ. We didn't leave until after lunch time and used Waze to help us determine the best way past DC by using 301 instead of 95. It was actually a nice drive.

Unfortunately we got the check engine light AGAIN as we went past through Baltimore, MD. Huge sad face. A black box has been installed to monitor everything now while we drive. We NEED to find out what is making this happen!

This campground has many folks who work in the local area. Loved talking to everyone!

Round Pond Recreation Area - West Point, NY
Yeap yeap... We got the check engine light AGAIN but this time hopefully our black box captured what they need to determine what the problem is. We are SO TIRED of this problem. Sigh.

Now to wait til the big day on Saturday!
