Our First Oliver siting in the wild, in central Ohio


Recommended Posts

Our first Oliver siting in the wild!

I-71 Nortbound just north of Columbus, Ohio. Thursday, Sept 29 2:45 PM Orange graphics on the front. 

👋👋
 

And then an hour later, we saw another one, also heading north on I-71, but a bit south of Columbus. 

We’re either of these someone on here? Y’all having a secret rally I’m missing out on?

Meanwhile, we’re in our squaredrop at Caesar Creek State Park, where it is supposed to get to 40 degrees tonight. Brrr!

40s at night makes for good sleeping!  We had several of those in Colorado this summer.  Heading out next week and hope to have more.  Mike

No "secret" Ollie rally that I know of but I do remember when I saw my first Ollie in the wild.  I waved like crazy and honked my horn - to no avail - but the look on the face of the lady in the car next to me was priceless.  Guess she thought that I had lost it.

Camping at 40 degrees in that little camper really shouldn't require much heat with one or two people inside it.  The Oliver is going to be sooooo much more comfortable.

Steve,

We too are waiting on our Oliver LE II and saw one yesterday going through the pass at Black Mountain, NC. We were heading east and they were westbound. Looked like faded blue graphics on the front (or light blue). We did park across from one out at Flathead Lake, MT two years ago but we were Airstreamers and they didn't seem too chatty. LOL.

We are burning through 30 years of Marriott points on this trip, good thing too with all this rain in NC.

Travel Safe,

Brian

Yep, it was 40 this morning, and good sleeping. Two of us with just sheets, a fake feather comforter, and a quilt across my cold feet. We have a 200W heater to take the chill off, and vents open with Fantastic Fan on low to get the moisture out. 
 

The only time I was cold were the two trips during the night “looking at stars”. 😉 Deb has a shower/potty tent, which has a 500W ceramic heater running in it all night, so she was warmer in there than in the trailer. 😀

Still, the best part was outside making tea/coffee and breakfast; something we’ll continue to do with the Oliver. We have a nice camp kitchen setup, and plan to use it most of the time.

We are heading out Sunday and these are the predicted temperatures. I love the lower temperatures, great for bonfires, soups, stews and cozy sleeping!
