North Conway NH Truck Camper Fall Jamboree

Arrived in North Conway, NH before noon for the start of the New England Truck Camper Fall Jamboree. 26 Truck Campers expected with the farthest away from Washington State. There are about a dozen campers here already and a pleasant time was had around the campfire trading places to go and tips on camper use. Really fun to put faces with the names from the Truck Camper Forum on RV.NET. We all had a great time teasing Mike T about being overloaded with his camper once again. Of course, he did arrive with a front carrier full of firewood. Great weather, no bugs, river has almost enough water for a canoe. Tomorrow we meet/greet and socialize. Tomorrow evening is hot dog roast with other communal meals to follow. As usual, our TC performed perfectly. The new Torklift with FastGun tiedowns are an amazing difference from the HappiJac system the truck came with. No sway, no bounce, just a solid feeling on the truck and camper being one unit. Feels good to be out travelling again.

Here's Mike with his foot recovering from the pins coming out and Pat unloading wood. More folk arrived quickly for the unload. Pat hosted us at her camp site and we all envied her Ford 550, Big Foot and trailer fitted out as office/spare bedroom.

Was reading a Ravelry post and decided to check out your blog.

Here's a tip that worked for me when driving thru North Dakota and having a windshield full of honey-soaked bee splatter (drove past a lot of flax and canola fields). The solution --- baby wipes.

I was desparate. The windshield was a mess and I was in a remote area near Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I try to keep hand wipes in the car and figured if it worked on baby behinds then it might work on cleaning windshields. And it worked like a dream. The first one took off the worst and the second cleared it. Let me know if it works for you. Good luck travelling.

P.S. Sorry about the Indianapolis construction. It has been a really frustrating year for us locals too.
