Well I got back last night from being at Lundbom Lake near Merritt, BC. Left on Tuesday. Very nice 5 days there. First 3 days very warm...around 30 celsius. Rain of Friday with thunder and lighting. That was a cool show.

Good trip except coz the lake was so busy....could not get level site.....even with wood under tires of truck and air bags lifted and camper jacks adjusted. made fridge not work properly...thankfuly had a coleman max cooler.

Fishing was not good for me...Jumping and rising all over the place but could not catch....Oh wel,l nice being out there anyway..

At least dry bed and radio from Sirius although here you can pull in stations from Merritt and Kamloops.

Truck ran good...Camper was good besides fridge...It is old...I think 1974 if I read right. Has two group 27 batteries now. Sat radio. Hot water heater. Lots of storage.
Interior was redone by someone else as you might be able to see from one shot... Very light color...Someone carpeted the floor may change this the linoleum. With Honda 2000 gen...keeping everything charged was easy...

No leaks but hits some branches on my out and saw caulking was lifted in some places on roof...Also the rain gutters were bent a bit so when raining water dripping where it should not...

But I had fun.....relaxing trip...by went too fast...I hope these pics work and not too big....

Looks good! Nice to see a body of water that's not swarming with jet-skis. [emoticon]

The next time you might want to disconnect your tie downs that might help a little in leveling the rig. JMHO

Um Jim...thanks...but I did make them loose....the back of the camper was about 1 inch off of the bed of the truck...Like I said, it was so busy there did not want to drive around looking for another spot...
BTW the entry door was at my shoulder..I am 5' 7" tall.....
could not find a more leveler spot....
