Before leaving on any road trip, there is always preparation work to be done. On our list was making sure Daisy was mechanically sound. This was only our 3rd long distance road trip in our travel van Daisy since purchasing it in late fall of 2016. Since this would be our first spring/summer excursion we needed to de-winterize it. One would think “what’s the big deal” and you would be right. But, being our first time we wanted to be safe and have a dealer do it. We scheduled the appointment and $400.00 later we were set. Wow, this was great… now we could use the faucets and toilet.
Next on our list was some small fix it projects and finally was bathe Emma. You dog owners probably know a 60-pound chocolate lab can sometimes be a tad bit odiferous especially when inside a camper van that has limited living space, so we wanted her to begin the trip fresh and clean. Emma does love her baths so this was an easy task.
Well this is it for today. We hope you come back and see how the trip unfolds as we share more of the USA Through Our Eyes. Until then be safe.
