Momma Sharon's Addiction

My Camper Mom has an addiction.  An addiction that she freely admits to.  She is addicted to buying awnings for me!!  Good for me...bad for her...LOL!

Yesterday, a package from California was delivered via UPS.  A package that read "Paha Que" on the shipping label.  OMG, my new Visor had arrived!

We were supposed to go camping together this weekend, but Momma Sharon changed her mind Tuesday evening after weighing in the cost of gas, the camping fee, and mostly the fact that we went to this same Sisters on the Fly gathering last year.  

Before you feel sorry for me, you have to know that she's heading to Michigan on Monday with Aunt Becky to pick up a new member of our family.  Yep, The Coffee Cup is finally ready to come home to North Carolina and my Mom is spending the weekend getting ready for the trip and for The Cup's arrival!

But back to my new awning.  It's called a "Visor" and it's brand new from Paha Que.  It weighs less than 4 pounds, is a waterproof blue and gray vinyl, comes in a nice little bag, and looks just like the bill of a baseball cap or visor.  The first thing you do is slide it into the keder rail.

The retractable pole slides into a sleeve and before you know it,  the whole awning just kinda pops up into place!  Next you attach the guy lines into the lower keder rails, pull them snuggly and BINGO . . . the new Visor is up!

I wish I could tell you that Momma Sharon and Aunt Becky put it up in only 5 minutes like the instructions said, but it took them a bit longer.  They wrestled with it a little while before it went up.  But I didn't hear one single bad word out of either of them! 

I think I look pretty darn cute with my Visor on!!  What do you think?

I get to go on a two week trip in October and I'm pretty sure that my Camper Mom will put my Visor on me every time we stop to camp. 

Thanks for stopping by today so I could tell you the Story of my new Visor.  Have fun out there and remember...

"Peace, Love & Camping!"
