Hi ladies!

I've been lurking and planning for about a year. I just turned 30 this month, so this is my big quarter life project and I'm so excited it's finally time to rock and roll! I'm a project manager for theatre/film/tv sets and I worked in NYC for a long time engineering those big Christmas window displays, so this is the perfect next challenge for me. Finally got my drafting done for my chassis and I'm going to get the steel next week!

My mom and I spent last night brainstorming names for my drop (I grew up and live by the ocean, so it had to be beach related without being too cheesy) and I think I finally got one: Teardrop Thalassa. Thalassa is a not-very-well-known primordial goddess of the sea, and a divine female personification of the sea, in Greek mythology. A Thalassophile is someone who loves the sea.

Okay Ladies, (and those Gents who read this thread),
It's time to inventory your trailer for the coming season (If you have not already done so). Change/fluff up the bedding, disperse any dust bunnies that have gathered during the winter months, and go through your galley. My prep always includes refreshing the dish/bath towels, checking the stock of paper products like napkins, tissues, paper towels, etc., and foil, baggies, and disinfecting wipes. I also check the batteries and replace ones in flashlights, b.p. lanterns, and charge the main battery I use for the interior and galley lights. I refill water bottles, dutch oven supplies, and check my stash of kindling and firewood. Outside, make sure the exterior doors and hatch are still firmly closing and locking, your tires have the right amount of tread and air, and see that all the bulbs (+spares) are packed for your lights. It is also a good idea to look over the wiring/lighting connections to your tow vehicle, inspect the hitch, and think about the last time you had the wheel bearings packed.
There is a reason I have earned the title of Teardrop Nanny........ :R You are welcome. Have a wonderful and safe camping season and be sure to tell us about your adventures. xo TDN

I'm still making improvements to ours from our notes from last year. I want to give it a gentle hand washing, but I'm going to wait until we get it to the Northeast, where water is more plentiful!

Happy camping everyone!
