Our Gidget's maiden voyage - a few quick pics

Postby ZugZug » Mon Apr 04, 2016 5:33 am

We waited a long time for this little beauty, and finally picked it up a few weeks back.

We've driven over 5,000 kms on the return journey to pick it up, and already have some great tales to tell. No sooner had we got it home, than we turned back around again to take it camping for another 4 nights at the Barossa Valley with the Australian Bike Friday Club (they ride folding bikes from the US - 120 cyclists which was great fun).

So with all those nights in it already, this little teardrop already feels like home. I slept so well in it, and found the whole camping experience quite luxurious and very, very comfortable. I did not miss a single sunset or sunrise in the whole 2 weeks since we got the keys. With that window just by your face while sleeping, looking out on the sunrise is a simple matter of opening your eyes at the right time, then closing them again to catch a few more zzzzzz's.

Love this thing. And just in time for the best part of the South Australian camping season (March/April)

Congratulations on your new teardrop! Glad you're enjoying it and getting out, camping in it. It looks really roomy.
I think you're the first one to purchase and comment on it, here, on this forum.
Thanks for sharing. :applause:
