First trip out with our home built teardrop

Postby AllenS » Mon Jul 23, 2018 2:42 pm

We took a two week vacation, the first five days of which were spent finishing up the teardrop. We stayed close to home for the maiden voyage, going an hour south to Lake Como. We ended up staying at the Rock Creek Horse Camp, which is about a ten minute walk from the lake.

From there, we headed up north to Lake Koocanusa, and found a little spot a few miles up a dirt road, right on Big Creek. We spent three days there, and didn't see another soul the whole time. It was pretty great.

Then we spent a night at Tally lake, but literally just the night. The mosquitoes were so bad that we didn't even try to have breakfast there. We packed up and pulled out about 8am, and had breakfast at a little day use area a few miles down the road. I imagine Tally lake would be a great place to stay when the mosquitoes aren't so bad. Huge campground, great beach.

We spent the last few nights at Ashley lake.

We're back at work this week, but planning on going out again this weekend. Still deciding where to go next. We're so thrilled to finally have the teardrop done, and on the road. :)

Looks like a great first trip with many more to come.

We are hoping for at least a shake down trip some time in Sept.
