Rick and Susie; Comedy and Camping


8 April 2017

Show just ended just before 10pm and now we need to take the 3-hour trek home ... not many people on the road, the third hour was very difficult to stay awake ... need to note that we shouldn't travel without a good rest before hand!! But we're home and its 1am... final mileage was 96342.
Completed at 4:30pm so it took us just under an hour... still need to put together our setup and teardown departure checklist but I think we're doing pretty good at getting a rhythm... now we need to head 20 minutes up the street for our evening concert...
Thomas 3:30 and we decided to start our breakdown of the camper in the kitchen take showers get ready for the evening at the casino we're going to be able to drain the black water here at the site so it'll be pretty cut and dry and all finished see how long it takes us but again taking our time....
Decided to spend the afternoon fishing at wellington lake...
Had a great night of sleep ๐Ÿ’ค after staying up watching red box movies ๐Ÿ“ฝ... now it's time to get the zombie some coffee and breakfast before she smells blood ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ I think we will do eggs ๐Ÿณ and beacon with English muffins. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Dinner time... making a fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ and putting steaks on the grill ... but first enjoying Cheese, Crackers and Drinks๐Ÿธ... she loves her Cucumber Vodka/Sprite and she made me a Crown and Sprite ... Thank you Susie!!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘And Yes the bypass valve was our issue... "Still Learning "!!
Okay we are done, set and ready to start Glamping๐Ÿš™. Susie was a great tag team partner๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ‘Œ It's 6:09, so it only took us 30 minutes to get leveled, set and plugged in ๐Ÿค—โ˜บ ... Hot water heater has kicked on which is a plus, now we'll see about the hot water issues .. I'm going to check into the bypass valve and see if that's our issue? Read it on an RV Blog to look at that?? However, we're up and functional๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Made it to our destination in about 3 and 1/2 hours ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘Œ ... Final mileage to destination was 96110 .... and exactly used one full tank of gas, 36 gallons to get hereโ›ฝ... I really do need to get a 250!! So now going to pull into our upgraded premium spot (cement pad, full 50amp hook up with nicely placed receptacles) and set up ... Let's see how long it takes, โฐ it's now 5:40pm ... But remembering a good piece of advice ... "Take your time and do it right"!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘
Just over halfway there on interstate 35 to Whichita .... Susie is freaking out because there are grass fires๐Ÿ”ฅ and "what is going to happen to the wild life" ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‡ ... "Run cows run" ๐Ÿฎ ... she even called 911 ... however, turns out we are seeing first hand a major controlled burn ๐Ÿš’ that everyone swears is under control?? Fires for as far as we could see and about 5 miles along the highway. Even came across flames right next to the road!
Just after 2:00pm, seem to be on time for our departure on trip number 2 of our new RV ... Susie spent the day getting the trailer ready and she did okay ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™Š ... No she did good!๐Ÿ‘ฉ We are headed to a comedy concert by Bill Engvall ๐Ÿ˜„ at a casino just south of Wichita Kansas in Willmington Kansas (at the Kansas Star Casino) ... Apollo ๐Ÿ• was helping but not happy we are leaving ... starting miles are 95915 ...
