Possum - it's uncanny. I was just saying - you know what would make this better - an ocean and waves crashing into some rocky crags and a bonfire. :thumbup: oh yeah - and trains blowing horns all night.

Hey, Steve, it's not much better weather wise here in Florida panhandle!! Also have friends on S FL who are complaining about cooler than average weather this year. Also rain every day, albeit warmer than yours. We lived on our boat in S Fl, and Bahamas for several years, and 50% of the time the weather was less than fun. However I'll take riding the waves or the rainbow over the alternatives (work) anytime even with iffy weather. Don't get discouraged. 😁😆

Great to hear from you Mike.
Oh yeah I'm with you on the ride and the weather, well it's part of the great journey. But - the drizzle and greay skies seem to be almost relentless - and doesn't have any storm quality at all. Almost a test pattern...

44 degrees with a real feel of 38 right now and 91% humidity. Been scratching my head for what these are ideal conditions for - and I keep coming up with being a duck... When a retired gentleman and lifelong ship captain for the state of Maine is disgruntled you know you're in good company!

Chasing the sunshine may be more difficult than I first thought, but I am mutant - hear me roar. We can take it and make into whatever we want it to be. I am glad that we aren't breaking camp and moving today

Not only the Wintertime, but Summertime also has great weather along the CA Sourthern Coast. We are headed that way this Summer for our annual 4-5 month trip.

He can put his smoker under the carport. I could take mine down there in the rain... lol.

Again - really some nice things going on here... lol.
Steve, as much as you enjoy smoking meats, have you considered buying one of those four poster awnings they sell at Sam's or Walmart? Even the local camping store would have one. Not that expensive if I remember?

Cheer up, it's going to 70˚ in Pharr this Saturday, and Sunny.

Hey Steve & Mike and the rest of this mutastic bunch of mutants,

Today is another sunny day and a balmy 53 at 8:30 am. The weather is always a variable, and being retired means you can take each day in stride. Sure it may be overcast, Greg, gloomy and chillier than you like, but you aren't knee deep in snow, and it is winter let's not forget that little fact. Sometimes you may spend more indoor time than you want, well I suppose you can wait it out or get some foul weather gear and beat back the nasty enough that you can do what you want. I just know that this cold spell is a cycle that we will get through. When I was a kid I can remember trick or treating while trudging through 2 feet of snow, its been many years since there was that much snow in lower Michigan in October.

Just take each day in stride, life is just to short to sweat the small stuff.

Cheers !!!! To one and all

We have friends that live on the south coast of Lake Erie about 30 minutes out of Buffalo. They have lived there the whole time I've known them (+40 tears) and they are telling us that there has never been as much snowfall there as there has been this winter season.

I remember reading in some obscure history book that there were Neanderthal wives complaining to their Neanderthal Husbands about to go hunting with their prized new weapons, saying "There has never been such rotten weather since those scientists started experimenting with those confound new Bows & Arrows."

I believe that was about the official time of the start of conspiracy theory 101 or as we know it, "CLIMATE CHANGE."

We enjoyed sailing and canoeing and if you do very much of either you can't let rain or cold weather be a detriment or you'd miss out on some of life's great experiences, like canoe camping in AR and staying in Albert Pike State Park in a storm with rain and cold. The experiences get better as the memory fades. Sailboat racing in Feb in the Gulf of Mexico was misrabile at the time but we still remanice about how bad and fun it was.

10 years from now do think you will remember the 10,000 miles you drove or the horrible storm that was exciting and got the heart pumping? I can go into great detail about the evacuation for "Ike" but nothing about the week before.

Steve - your just building a memory, it'll be funny in several years and you will have several new friends - enjoy.

Wayne - one of the guys here has two of them set up side by side. Looks very nice. It's a thought - but not through pondering the notion.

Truth be told - with the Maverick 733 I have - once the fire is going and the smoke doing its thing - I can go inside and monitor the Temps of meat and the inside smoker temp as well.

Hey Jeff - dare ya to come down here and sweat anything - including the small stuff lol.
As for trudging through snow - never did - never lived anywhere with those conditions...

Have already made plans for the break in the weather. Going to do Cornish Hens on the grill Saturday with Don and Sandee.

Hope springs eternal in the RVMdom! The really nice thing is - we love each other and really love Bonita Bounder. We are home sweet home!
