Heading to Hohenwald!


Recommended Posts

Leaving Jackson Hole to pick up hull 1491 “Carlotta” on Monday the 18th. Furthest east we’ve ever driven! Never had a truck - never had a trailer (actually had a Coleman pop-up many years ago, but was too busy to use it).

Woo-Hoo!

Its all downhill from here - kind of.  Enjoy the trip and the delivery.  Be safe, get plenty of rest, have fun.  Ask a bunch of questions but don't worry about remembering it all - not possible.  Take a bunch of pics - for your own use and for posting here.  RELAX - you've got this.  Just take your time and don't let anyone rush you.  Did I say - "Relax"?

Congrats!

Bill

p.s.  the weather is forecast to get a bit damp over the weekend starting Friday.  Monday it will be cooler (highs in the 50's to low 60's) but dry and that should be the same for most of the week.

Doug and Jill, congratulations!  Don't worry about the towing, you'll hardly know the trailer is back there and the trailer tucks right in behind the truck so if your truck can make it trough a narrow spot your trailer will too.

Congrats and Welcome from Hull 1182!!

We took our IPAD and recorded the delivery for reference because I am lucky to remember last week let alone all the information we went over. Still refer back to it from time to time.

You also have the wonderful folks on here who can answer just about any questions or problems that might come up.

Even better news- 

The updated weather forecast for you looks like the wet weather originally forecast will sag a bit further to the south.  This should mean that the rain will not effect you.

Hope this holds and you have a safe trip.

Congratulations!  I'm so happy for you, and thrilled that you were able to tour my sweet Oliver when I was out in Jackson last fall. I look forward to seeing more posts of your adventures. All the best wishes for you on the road!  Toni

Take you time at the factory and during your travels

Stay at the Oliver Campground and checkout all equipment on the Ollie until you have run out of questions.

Safe travels

Congratulations.  I was a bit overwhelmed during pickup but after a night in their campground I reviewed all my notes and practiced turning things on and off.  I had a few questions and found some minor things and it was great to walk over and ask them.  Pick up extra Oliver Brochures to hand out to everyone who will want to know about your Oliver at fuel stops and campgrounds on your way back home!  Safe travels.

Great idea!

I always have 3 or 4 of the current year's brochures to hand out.

Hi Toni! We picked up Carlotta today!  Spending our first night at campsite #1! First Gin and Tonic - which works as planned. Head to Asheville tomorrow via Uncle Nearest Distillery. Both puppies love their new twin beds.

Oh....the wonderful memories!  Enjoy the great experience.  Despite similar wise counsel, we did not test "everything" - specifically how to dump our gray tank.  Went to dump it the first time at about 50% full and nothing would come out.  Oh dear....

After a frantic call to Service, we came to realize we were pointed nose first downhill at this particular dump station.  Whoopies!  Fortunately for us, we had no Oliver flaws - only our own!

We will not forget our great pick up experience and pray yours is even better!

Headed further south! Now in High Falls GA. A lot warmer here, and the traffic in/out of Atlanta was horrible! Headed down to Mobile tomorrow.

There are some lovely camping spots in the panhandle north of Tallahassee. Enjoy the warmth of Florida!
