What we learned

Things we definitely learned on our first voyage.

1) We need screens and a screen door. We know how we're going to do it, but hadn't gotten around to it yet.

2) The back curtains will not work on a wire. One roll by a Kid Sleeping With Mom and it was torn from its moorings.

3) Once the tools and such are removed from the overhead compartments, we'll be able to fit a lot of things in there.

4) Our fuel tank was NOT full when we thought it was (or at least I HOPE it was not). The gauge said full and the pump stopped to indicate it was full before we left town. But on the way out of the State Park we stopped to fuel up (so I could use my handy dandy chart to determine MPG) and thinking we would not spend that much, we used our debit card at the pump. You know how they have a predetermined amount they'll let you spend? Our pump stopped before we could get it filled and we had only traveled 77 miles. We did have some difficulty with the pump not wanting to continue, ya know, like it's full...Maybe it's a much bigger tank and there was a lot of splashing...?... I'm hoping that's the case.

5) Everyone was afraid they'd fall off the top bunk, but no one did.

6) It drives well. I can even do it.

7) If you drop your size 1 double pointed knitting needle in the woods, you will never find it.

8) I can NOT pack pretzels and honey mustard for a camping snack EVER AGAIN.

9) Pack a wagon, it's a must for hauling the full potty to the dumping station. (see #8 above)

10) We should charge for tours ;)

Too fun. I think charging for tours is a great idea. I would love to see the inside of your bus (in person).

I enjoyed reading your blog, Kari. I especially enjoyed the homeschooling moms' 12 days of homeschooling song. Looks like Green Bay has a pretty with it homeschooling group.

Go NEWCHAA V-ball!
