The First Adventure of Hester Ann

This weekend marked the first adventure of Miss Hester Ann, our beautiful 1963 Yellowstone Trailer. Nervous? That would be an understatement, for sure.

This was the first time we’d taken her anywhere. We decided to go to Joe Wheeler State Park – about 35 minutes from our house. We’d tent camped there before and really enjoyed it. There’s a good crowd, the staff is friendly, and the bathhouses and facilities are clean. Plus, we knew the drive well – not a lot of hills or sharp turns for the old girl.

We only stayed for one night since we mainly, “just wanted to try it out.” It went really well. We asked for a pull-through campsite, since Daniel isn’t a pro at backing up just yet.

It’s not spring break around here, so the campground was mostly retirees and couples.

Apparently, curtains will breeze out the window while in tow if not secured. Who knew, huh?

The above is bunting I made from the leftover curtain fabric. The pollen in the trees was ridiculous. I’ve lived in the south my entire life, so I’m accustomed to it. However, this was so thick, it was visibly floating in the air. We left the truck windows down, and the inside was covered in yellow and green.

There’s still a few things we’d like to do, but we really don’t have to do everything at once. She’s fine for now, and worked great for what we needed. Here’s to the rest of the summer!
