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!
On our traveling day to Ohio we woke up in Wytheville, VA to find ice and snow on the camper and steps. This was our day to travel and we wanted to get an early start, but we had a little cleaning up to do. At the last minute I had packed an ice scraper before […]
Well our plans were to be at the Gallipolis Fairgrounds tonight but here we sit in Wytheville, Virginia…. Sometimes the weather reads my blog and decides to shake things up a bit….. Last night we stayed in Mayberry Campground and our plans were to only stay in that area one night. It was only 4-1/2 […]
So we are getting ready to leave on another trip and I’ve been reading about how accidents can happen when the propane is left on for the refrigerator while driving. I’ve thought about this before, and felt like the risk was so slight and really didn’t pay much attention to all the warnings. We’ve always […]
Last week in Raleigh I went to a Barnes & Nobles. I really didn’t have anything particular in mind to look for as I do most of my shopping on Amazon or listen to books on Audible. This particular day I just went browsing through the aisles (like I love to do)…. I came […]
Raleigh State Fairgrounds Our son landed in Raleigh, NC for business on Monday for a week long stay. Because Raleigh is only 2-1/2 hrs away from us, and we haven’t seen him since last fall, we decided to make the trip for a short visit. We knew we couldn’t take too much time away from […]
Greg was busy a few days ago putting up new blinds. The Winnebago’s and most campers come with pleated shades. Because these are made for RV’s it makes it very hard to raise them up and down. With pleated shades you get either full light or darkness. We added these in our previous camper and […]
Today we left Sweet Pea home (in the camper). She was just fine as you can see by the smile on her face. We planned on riding bikes and we couldn’t take her. We’ve left her alone in our other camper before and she’s just fine. That’s one nice thing about having a camper…in a […]
We started out the day headed for Coligny Beach Park. I had read in a brochure that Hilton Head really doesn’t have a downtown but this area was the most centralized gathering area. It has a bunch of shops, restaurants and access to the beach so we thought this was a good place to start. […]
We left about 10 this morning and landed at Hilton Head RV Resort & Marina around 4. We stopped a few times along the way. We stopped at the South Carolina welcome center and parked in the Truck/RV lot. Look are in the open…. We thought we had parked out in the open. While eating […]
