Busy weekend. Took off Friday to get a jump on the weekend. Took advantage the start of the fall football season and headed north for the game for a long weekend and trial run in the new rig. As with most new toys, there is a bit of a learning curve on operations, but nothing I couldn't handle. This is the first test run with my new trailer and it gave me a few ideas for things to add to my shopping list. The rig is a good 5 feet longer and 1500 lbs heavier than my last one, so it handles a wee bit differently. Overall impression, it was a great run and the trailer worked better than I expected. Nice to have a real bed for each of us instead of a gaucho couch. And a real adult stand up shower and holding tank to match. The last trailer had a tiny (footlocker size) shower that would be cramped for anyone over 5' 8" and a very small holding holding tank that filled up fast. This one is about the size of a small phone booth, but works great. Lots of room.

After the concert, they hold a midnight yell practice in the stadium to fire up the team/student body. This was taken at 2300 after the concert, but by midnight all three decks were full.
