We are in NM and headed to Camp Newmar. If everything goes as planned we should be there on Tuesday. Is anyone else around or is it empty?

Any snow there today?

My coach has been there since mid-January getting some warranty work done. Because of the weather, I'm in no hurry to drive over and pick it up......

Enjoy your stay!

We won't arrive until late this evening. We chose to go north up to Chicago and then over because it looked like better conditions than going through Indianapolis. We were maing good time until we crossed into Indiana from Illinois. It isn't actively snowing but the roads have snow on them and traffic is slow going.

Bonnie - is it the call of free lodging that draws you & Nathan back?

Hope all is well.

Nathan says we are saving $150 in lodging and it only cost us $2000 in gas to get here.

It is the call of crappy service that leads us back. We have stopped a couple of places to get small things looked at and regretted what they did to it. We came back to Newmar to have the work done right.

I am SO sorry Bonnie. Give Nathan our regards and hope to see you guys down the road.

Sheila had her foot re-operated last week, no weight bearing for 12-16 WEEKS.

Still, we'll be back on the road again soon.

Mark

I realize every morning at 5:30 when I am trying to bundle three children into the cold to get to my mom's trailer that we tow (thankfully with the slow season she is right behind us this time) just how much I LOVE my rig!! We all get very excited around 2:00 when she pulls back in and we get to go back home!

Thought I would post a picture of the service office covered in snow so all of you know what you are missing. It is supposed to be 3 degrees tonight and it has been snowing all day.

It looks so inviting!

I got a call this morning, telling me the MH was ready. I will need to call Newmar and tell them when I'll drive over to pick it up, but I am in no hurry - especially, given the weather....

Interesting day... Been raining so the ice and snow is almost totally gone. There are now 11 coaches in the lot and I know of atleast one more that is on its way. Almost looks busy around here.

How's that Nappanee weather today?

Saw on the news where 15 cars and 12 big rigs crashed on I-94 near Michigan City southeast of Gary.... gotta be a bit chilly up there.

Robert,

Your rubbing it in does not make it any warmer up here.

Tonight is supposed to be a low of 6. The last couple of nights have been negative numbers due to wind chill. I think Monday is supposed to get up to 30s.
