Talk about trying new things... I am going to be taking my boys camping in a tent trailer starting next Friday! We will be camping in the mountains for the first 8 nights, then in Cochrane for another week. I am slightly terrified to be doing this, so many things to think about and get prepared for. But, I know that we need this time together, time that I haven't had while packing this house up.

The only other terrifying thing is hauling a trailer with the van! I have never pulled anything before, thankfully it's only going to be a tent trailer. At Lake Louise, thankfully all the spots are pull through, so I won't have to worry about the torture of trying to back the trailer up. Not sure I will be ready for that the first day out. I'm pretty sure I will need to back up in Cochrane, but I can deal with that problem when and if it arrives.

Hopefully my next post will be all about getting out of this house, and putting that part of my life behind me!

  1. I remember when I started driving the truck and tent trailer. I was really worried but found it not so bad. For me, it was harder because the truck was fairly new and so much bigger then my van. I was not terribly comfortable driving it let alone pulling too!

    Pull through sites are the cat's meow!

    And when you get to Cochrane, if you are having trouble, ask someone to help you out. Almost every camper is ready to help another camper in need. :)
