Well, we’ve learned a few things. Don’t want to give away all of our foibles too early into the adventure. This is our first experience with “full hook-ups” (no, not that kind of hooking up). It means that all utilities are provided. But it also means you have to have cables and tubes and cords that REACH to the utility poles and holes. So…we still need a sewer hose extension and a cable TV coax cable to complete our “full hook up” environment. A trip to Radio Shack should do it for the latter. I think the office here sells the sewer extensions. We must not be the only greenhorns…
Another lesson was learning how to pre-plan the pull-in to the space. After a few attempts, we landed, put down the stabilizers, unhitched the truck, and called it good. But take a look at this:
Yes, the neighbors electrical box is smack dab in front of our door. However, when my parents came over yesterday, Dad mentioned that he was glad to have something to hold on to in getting up and down the stairs. So the wrong place became the right place. And we learned mistakes can be for a good reason.
We also learned not to trust the hand-drawn maps that RV offices give you. We did make it to the beach…but missed the short cut by several blocks. Nevertheless, here’s a look at Oceanside Beach on a lovely June morning.

I could not figure out the picture with the white pole at first, took several minutes to realize those were the stair of your cabin from above:) I think I got it after I imagined of how your Dad would grab it climbing up the stairs! The “full hook-ups” system sounds like a space ship:D I guess, now you can barricade and air seal the doors for a fully independent existence, like, what, for a couple of months?

I want to borrow your 5th wheel about February and park in the same spot!
Great idea! But we have better beach camping near us. We could do a cousins thing. Janine could come too!
