Permits Aquired

Saturday morning I got off work and headed out to the Clinton Lake. After meeting Terry and Linda, I bought my Kansas Parks and Recreation vehicle pass and ended up picking up the annual "All You Can Camp" pass for 2010.

Plan is to head out today and get a spot at the lake, unload the camper and spend the some time. Rules are I can stay in the same spot for two weeks, then I have to move to another campground down the road. Looking around the campground, I have my doubts they enforce that too strictly. Several units have some pretty permanent looking attachments. Here's a link to the campground brochure Clinton State Park.

I bought 2 Trojan T-105 batteries but have not got them hooked up yet. There is no where inside the camper to hold these 2 large 6v batteries. My plan is to build a cradle for them that will sit between the truck bed side and the camper basement. I need 10 feet or so of wire and connectors to put it together. It will be easier to build and set up with the camper off. So I'm going to get a site with electricity for now. Once I get my wires built, I'll set the batteries in the truck and hook them up when I'm there.

I plugged the Lance into the house current yesterday afternoon, the furnace is working great, the frig is down right cold, the lights and stereo are working fine. Haven't tried out the water system yet, I'm going to wait to be at the dump station before filling it. The previous owner said it was all fine, the pump does work, I'm sure it'll be fine. I need to pick up chemicals for the tank.

So much to do today, can't wait to get started.
