Camped In The Snow
For the past few years, my wife and I have left northeast Florida and gone camping and celebrated Christmas in our Jayco. This year we made reservations at Cherokee KOA in North Carolina. Got there with 2 inches of snow on the ground and temps in the 20's, all of which we expected. Then came the weather forecast about the big storm coming across from the west. We had planned on going to Richmond, VA after 6 nights in Cherokee and camp in my sister's driveway, but decided to leave Cherokee two days early and beat the storm. We didn't beat it by much, as it started snowing shortly after we arrived. By Christmas day we were camping in 8 inches of snow. My sister only had a 15 amp outlet available and her voltage was low, so we fired up our Honda EU3000 and it ran for 6 days non-stop until we left. A 100 watt light bulb close to the gray and black water slide valves took care of the plumbing for the 22 degree nights. The only problem encountered was having to get up on the trailer roof to sweep the snow off the slide out awning before it would roll up. If you haven't camped in the snow it's a new experience, although pulling a 10,000 lb 30 foot trailer in snow and/or ice is not recommended. We waited until the roads were dry before leaving. 1650 miles round trip with a white Christmas.
