I did do some other minor fixes before heading out. One of them was to help the driving behavior on the highway. The Allegro is not so great in a crosswind but even in just a light wind shes' a bit of a two-hander to deal with. So, I ordered a Gabriel RV steering damper and some MOOG urethane sway bar bushings to help the ride.
|A stowaway no more! The original useless steering damper.|
|There's some new colors in town! Bit by bit, the RV is getting retrofit... Hey! I made a rhyme!|
We headed out a bit late after getting everything set for the drive and arrived at the Natural Bridge/ Watertown KOA http://koa.com/campgrounds/watertown/
|Gettin' a fire goin' in the Adirondack Campground fire pit! Even cooked two dinners on this one!|
|A nice pile of old and dry firewood courtesy of Ed at KOA!|
|Some of the old and outdated playground equipment the new owner's removed from the KOA. Oh, Charlie Brown!|
|Working and stoking the campfire on Saturday before the remnants of Harvey swooped in and rained for almost 2 days....|
The campsite is great with most of the spots being a wooded location under Eastern Hemlocks. The "new" owners have been working on upgrades and fixing things that were left a bit undone by the previous owners. We never had any issues with water, electric or sewer while there. They moved us to a great spot in the middle of the campground (#28!) right next to Ed and family that help them keep the place in shape. Ed even offered to get us some old firewood to stock up our fire pit for the weekend! Everyone was friendly and despite having rain on Saturday night through Sunday all day and night we had a good time.
Now to plan the "after summer" camping trip. Where to go and what to do....
