  1. Glad you got off to a good start. We have had strangers follow us down the road into our neighborhood as we return from a trip who want to talk about the Ollie as we are trying to get it parked in the driveway.
  2. Ditto to everything that Mighty Mo said above. I love the clean, serene vibe - easy to clean, well constructed.
  3. This couple is traveling with a baby and has some good videos. We met them at a campground in New Hampshire. https://www.youtube.com/@Wanderlocal
  4. If you're still there, we've enjoyed renting kayaks at Lazy Otter in Mills River, also hiking at Devil's Courthouse and other hikes nearby.
  5. We discovered this metal piece in our Ollie. Can anyone ID it? Thanks.
  6. Yes, all those Girl Scout songs go through my head while hiking.... "I love to go a wandering along the mountain track And as I go I love to sing, my knapsack on my back Valderi, Valedera, Valdera Valde ha ha ha ha ha ha Valderi, Valdera my knapsack on my back (The Happy Wanderer by Friedn W. Moller)
  7. Welcome! As you watch the Oliver University videos, start a running list of questions that you have, organized by section of the trailer. Then during delivery you won't forget to ask them in the midst of all the info that is coming at you at once.
  8. One handy accessory that I made is a bag to hold plastic grocery bags to use for trash. It hangs from a hook that we installed high up in the closet.
  9. I paid $3.79 for regular this morning. Fuquay-Varina, NC (south of Raleigh)
  10. Welcome from a retired middle school English teacher!
  11. Looks suspicious to me! We'll be at Mt. Pisgah later in July. We really enjoyed it last year. Had to walk across the road to the chairs behind the Mt. Pisgah Inn to check our email... Did some great hikes and also rented a canoe from Lazy Otter Outfitters in Mills River.
  12. I freeze meals such as chili in the flat Chinese take-out containers. They stack up well in the Ollie freezer.
  13. Heading to Mt. Pisgah again later this summer, hope we get the nice weather that you had!
  14. StillGame, I can bring Ticket to Ride. I'll also bring Blokus and SkyJo because they are fast games if you just want a quick game.
  15. Leo, sounds good. We are in E33.
  16. When you go to NY, don't miss Watkins Glen. We stayed in the local town park campground. Hiked the Glen early in the morning to avoid crowds.
  17. I'm hoping a few people might want to gather for a game night (or game afternoon). I enjoy Blokus, SkyJo, and Trekking the National Parks. I can also bring Ticket to Ride or Settlers of Catan if anyone is interested in those. Please let me know your preferences as I don't plan to pack that many games.
  18. There are some Harvest Hosts sites in the Fort Myers area.
  19. I'd like to see Oliver have a session at the rally for getting our feedback on repair issues, ways to improve the Ollie, etc. We haven't had many issues but it would be a beneficial session for all.
  20. Will Oliver be sending more specific information out to those who have already registered for the May rally (other than the basic schedule that I see online?) Looking forward to meeting many of you there.
  21. Always be sure you double check the main door lock before traveling. I neglected to lock one time and the door came open in the middle of downtown Jacksonville, FL. We had to pull over in fierce traffic and get it closed and locked.
  22. This is an excellent museum in Fredericksburg. https://www.pacificwarmuseum.org/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwgMqSBhDCARIsAIIVN1U2OHwKzPgM2smWghf4ilznptdpjG0APazFL5cKZZZFfRK4ed9YM6IaAulqEALw_wcB
  23. Thank you for the info! My sister lives not too far from there in Center Point, so hopefully we will be able to stay at her property.
  24. We live not too far from the Southern Mattress family, so we decided to order our Ollie with only the provided foam cushions. We figured we could change to the mattress later if needed, but we've been comfortable with the cushions. My husband added a foam topper and I'm sleeping on just the cushions.
  25. We bought a mat before delivery, but we've actually only used it a few times, usually when we are going to be sitting around with guests. Most days, it doesn't seem worth it to get it out (and potentially get it dirty) and we're happy just to set up our chairs and table.
