Pace is slow for now

After last weekends 3 days of rain, the weather has improved and has been the normal April kind of weather. Cool, a little breezy and perfect for hiking or other activity as long as you are moving.
Our campsite is located at the beginning of one of the loops. Unfortunately it was the only one the campground had available. The full site hookups are on the wrong side of the rig when backed into the site. This presents issues with routing the sewer and water hook ups. The electrical and water connection points are a couple of feet off the ground so we could not put the rig all the way back into the site because the door would hit the electrical box and the steps would hit the water outlet. On our new fifth wheel the living room slide out will hit the same connections. It will be interesting to see how we fit the bigger rig into this site.
We have cleaned out our storage unit and now no longer need one. We will have the apartment until the end of May and the new fifth wheel should be here by the middle of May. Our pace is slow for now but once the new rig comes in we will be very busy getting it set up and moved into. We will have to downsize the apartment and get everything from the travel trailer moved over to the new rig. We have the travel trailer listed for sale now but have not had many hits on it. We did talk to a dealer this week about a consignment sale. We would basically pay them 10 percent of the sales price. We may go this route if we do not have any bites by the end of May.
We are settling into a routine, I get up early and have my coffee and Max sleeps in for a little longer. We have been walking a couple of miles everyday and Max is starting to get back into the elliptical. With her back and neck issues it helps to keep mobility. I have not started on it yet. I keep coming up with excuses. It has been a little chilly in the morning outside so I have been waiting on it to warm up a bit. Keep tuned because then I will say its to hot and I am waiting for it to cool down a bit!
Here is Max doing her morning routine.
Here are a few shots from around the campground
Our rig is on the left behind the trees
It is a very quite campground with a few day visitors that come to fish. The evenings are quite and our days are pretty relaxing.
