Matt and Mystie took the kids up to Chinook Pass where they got to play in the snow on one of the hottest days of the year. They really loved that.
Daniel and Melanie did some exploring and found a place for Melanie to do some plein air painting.
Geoff and Amber did a little exploring as well. Yep, the honeymooners joined us for the weekend, giving their new tent a try. The tent was great, but they definitely need some air mattresses for the next trip!
Lots of time was spent just hanging out around our campsite.
I didn't marry him for his winterizing skills. The trailer kitchen faucet didn't get emptied of water apparently, as when I turned on the water pump, water came streaming out of a rip in the neck of the faucet. Argh! So I resorted to tent camping techniques and all went well. Except for the trailer battery was going out and wouldn't keep the refrigerator lit! So Gary trekked into the Costco in Yakima for a new battery.
The worst though, was when in unhitching and leveling the trailer, the tongue of the trailer wasn't balanced properly on the blocks. As he was raising the tongue, it slipped off and the trailer went forward and boom - the thing hit the ground. Luckily, nothing was broken, but what an alarming event! That was a first in ten years of trailering. So back to square one, rehitching to the Expedition, repositioning the trailer, leveling on a very stable base, then unhitching.
So a very eventful start to the weekend. I think maybe next year we should take a little preseason camping trip and check out all the systems before we go on a big family trip!
