Welcome to Minnie Notes! I started this site/blog as a sort of personal journal about our camping experiences. We’ve been camping for a little over a year and a half but recently started to get even more excited about it when we purchased a new Winnebago Minnie 2401RG in February 2018. We have had lots of good trips in our previous camper, but the layout was cramped and the bed almost being in the kitchen just wasn’t my idea of a relaxing vacation. Truth be known, I am more of a “glamper.” I guess I need to post a disclaimer that this blog is being written from a glamper’s point of view.
Ironically, the camper we own now is the first camper we ever stepped foot in when we first started looking. At that time we owned a smaller tow vehicle and didn’t think it could handle the extra size and weight. We’ve since upgraded our tow vehicle and went back and purchased the Minnie. We are officially happy campers now. I hope you enjoy my somewhat personal notes and documentation. I tend to ramble… but there might be a few ideas or tips others might glean from this site. Thank you in advance for spending time here 🙂
Some recent posts!
We’ve had our 2401 rg for a little over a year and while we love this floorplan, we found the sofa to be somewhat uncomfortable. Months ago we invested in new foam, thinking that would help with the comfort. But even with the new foam, the depth of the sitting area was just too shallow. […]
For more information about our t-shirt quilts, visit www.quiltmyshirts.com This latest quilt was something that I’ve thought about for a long, long time. I have been collecting t-shirts of the places we’ve been to. I’ve worn some of these but some of them I purchased for this project.
We arrived in Edisto Beach Monday afternoon after driving from James Island Campground. When we arrived at the State Park Campground’s gate, we picked up our ticket for our pre-reserved site. We then proceeded to drive to our site. We noticed a sign on our way that said “caution low clearance” but we assumed that […]
We decided to extend our trip to Edisto Island this week by stopping and spending a couple of nights here in Charleston at James Island County Park. This park is a beautiful place once you get to it. It took us about 4 hours to drive from where we live in Southport, NC but it […]
Since our kids could not be with us this Thanksgiving, and we decided not to travel to Ohio (where Greg’s family is), we made plans early in October to travel up to the mountains of North Carolina near Asheville. We have stayed at this RV (Lakewood RV Park) park many, many times so it was […]
Well it’s a little late since it’s now almost Thanksgiving but I’m trying to catch up with this blog. Since I can’t remember the details of a lot of these pictures (after all it was months ago lol) I thought I would just post a few pictures of our trip. These pictures are from our […]
Why did we plan a trip in the heat of summer? The month before we left, it rained and rained and rained. We had more rain on record for the month of July in Southport, NC than it has had in years. We were quite pleased when we looked at the weather reports for our […]
Well we are presently into day 2 of our Kerr Lake camping trip. We hadn’t planned on doing 2 trips in June, but since Falls Lake got postponed due to rain, the two trips fell pretty close together. After the rainy stay at Falls Lake I was kind of excited to come here. The weather […]
We haven’t camped in almost 2 months and we really needed to get out for this trip despite the rain. Actually, this trip was planned last week, but because of so much rain we postponed it until now. It’s no fun watching radars every day and seeing big blobs of green and yellow in an […]
Yesterday we drove to Chimney Rock State Park. It was about 17 miles from the campground we were staying at (Lakewood RV Park) but it took a little over a half hour. It was quite a drive as far as curvy roads go. I’m glad we didn’t try and camp up near there as it […]
This will be a short blog post tonight but I just wanted to put up a few pics of our day trip today. We are staying again at Lakewood RV Resort in Hendersonville/Flat Rock area of North Carolina and I’m convinced this is the best location for a variety of activities. We started the day […]
