I too, missed my Recliner a lot.....
I sleep in it, it is an Electric model from Sam's Club, love it, adjust it where you want it, and it stays there.

2 1/2 months! I can't be away from work that long, and Deb starts protesting after too long, I guess 4 days is her max in the camper.

I had set the trip odometer in the truck to track our total mileage for the trip, it shows 485 miles, I calculate just a bit less than 10,000 miles on my trip planner which is only from one campground to the next, day trips were not included in that so I think it should be more like 10485 miles for the whole trip.

The highlights of the trip:
On the way to Custer We stopped at the Cajun Heritage Center and Vermillion Village in Lafayette LA, camped on the shores of Lake Livingston, visited the Waco Mammoth Site, Magnolia Silos, and Texas Rangers Hall of Fame. Pablo Duro Canyon State Park, Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo Botanical Gardens, and Panhandle Plains Historical Museum near Amarillo TX. Spent a couple of nights at the NRA Whittington Center and got the chance to use one of the firing ranges. Spent a few days in the Walden Park area of Colorado, and Estes Park plus Rocky Mountain National Park.

After Custer saw saw Independence Rock (which was actually rather mundane), travelled 191 along Flaming Gorge to Vernal UT and the Dinosaur National Park. Spent a day at the Ogden Union Station which has old trains, a nice model railroad, and the John Browning Museum. Saw the Bonneville Salt Flats. Won a few dollars at a Casino in Elko NV then travelled cross country into southern Oregon. Nevada has a lot of flat desolate land. Oregon has some beautiful green valleys. Went to Norther CA to see the redwoods, absolutely magnificent trees. Stopped at the Evergreen aircraft museum to see the Spruce Goose and a lot of other aircraft. Visited with Mel and Sandy for a day and I think we convinced them to come to next years NASR in NC. Saw Bonneville, Dallas, and Grand Coulee dams.

We went to the east side of Glacier park. Even with the quota system that place is still really busy. We stopped at the Roosevelt grasslands for a day. Spent some time near Bismark at the Lewis and Clark interpretive center. From there we had to highball it to Western PA for our grandson’s wedding. Spent a couple of weeks visiting family and headed back to florida where we arrived safe and sound.

Had one problem with the F150, the tailgate opened by itself and was sitting on the tongue jack as we were driving down the road. There is a recall for that so Ford is going to fix it and repair the scratched part under warranty. The trailer has a leak in the grey water system someplace so we had to be sure to get full hookups and leave the dump valve for the grey tank open and everything worked all right.

Overall a really great trip
