At last I think we are ready to take the trailer out for a spin.

We have spent the last few weeks gathering the things we might need and cleaning up and also researched the basics of this new hobby of ours and now we are ready – well as ready as we’ll ever be; at some point you just have to stop procrastinating and do it.

I have a few jobs left to do before we actually set off (sorting out the anti-sway bar, checking our tow vehicle over etc) but the main things like a fresh set of tires buying all the essentials are done.

We have booked a campsite for Friday and Saturday night near to Santa Barbara.  It’s a couple of hours’ drive so we will get hitched up and set off at the end of our work day and hopefully get there before dark.

We thought it best to try something not too far away to start with so we can find our feet and if all goes wrong retreat.

There is still a lot to  learn about all this and I will share our trials and tribulations with you as they come up.

Wish us luck!
