Thank you for the post GreyEagle! We made it to Oshkosh, WI and visited the EAA Airventure Museum. Really cool place. No issues on the trip there, it was only about an hour and a half drive, well other than when we first pulled out I made a corner and the fridge flew open and a gallon jug of water broke and dumped all over the kitchen floor (LOL). Luckily the water ran to the front, down the stairs and right out the door. No much to clean up . Needless to say we now have Velcro holding the fridge door shut.

Here is a couple pics I had to share, my wife said it was a flying skoolie:

Re: Our Farold's Conversion

If it can open by a tug .... chances are it will come open on the road somewhere, sometime.......

They do make latches for stuff like that. Kinda like child proofing the bus.........

Enjoyed the pics, stay safe, have fun and enjoy the trip....

Re: Our Farold's Conversion

We went to the Science and Industry Museum in Chicago today. It was a lot of fun but now we are exhausted.

Here is a pic of us going through Chicago:

Farold is doing great by the way!

Re: Our Farold's Conversion

Had to post a couple pics of our first campsite with Farold. We are in Huntington, IN at Camp Timber Lake Campground. Nice facilities and didn't bat an eye when we pulled in with the Skoolie.




Should I be creating a new thread for our trip and leave this for any additions to Farold or continue posting here? Figured I would ask...

Re: Our Farold's Conversion

A travel thread would help not "muddy up" your build thread for the future

Hey traveline, You are only about 15 miles from me if you want to stop by for a visit.

That would be cool. PM me your address. I will be heading out of here tomorrow morning heading up to Corunna for a few days (aunts and uncles live there). It would be easiest if I stopped on the way tomorrow. Check out time here is noon. Will you be around?
