My First Trip – VTJ09

2009_VTJ 002 I took the trailer to the Vintage Trailer Jam 2009 in Saratoga Springs (See my photos).  It took 5 long hours to get her there and my truck transmission started acting up before I arrived.  My knees were like jelly, so Brett kindly offered to back her into her designated spot (Thank God!).  But I had her setup and level in no time.  We had a great time learning about restoration costs and tools from Colin Hyde, Brett had a “riveting” talk, Rich gave a good talk on boondocking, and I enjoyed Eleanor’s essential kitchen items for the trailer (Also see Rich Luhr’s blog post about it).  I was sorry to miss the backing up seminar – during which ironically, Brett was backing up my trailer for me.
Friday night I went into Troy and was fed a lovely supper by Corey and Noah and got to meet my new grandpup, Charlotte the lab mix.

Thanks to Carol and Marc for being my backup plan if the truck died and for the delicious roasted vegetable pasta salad.

    It was great to see you at VTJ 09! I wish we could have gone on a longer bike ride. See you again next summer, I hope.
