What pains me at the moment , is that , because of the start date of my travel medical insurance , I can't get out of " Dodge " to get going until Monday , spring here was 3 weeks early , and now it looks like all seasons have shifted forward. If I could I'd be in Vegas by Monday.

Can you relate?


It is beautiful up here, including in winter. The foliage is amazing now! But, it would sure be nice if winter was limited to say…just December/January and then…Spring again. Oh well.

Have a good one.

Sounds like a very good plan! We just had our last hurrah Columbus Day weekend. Have a great winter!

The scenery/foliage is great here in NH! Isn't winter camping a sport? If not, it should be! You're a diehard! Enjoy and have a great winter!

Well here in Kansas we have an average temperature of about 70 degrees. But that means cold (-20) and windy in the winter and hot (120 ) and windy in the summer and very limited in between but somehow works out to a 70 average. Oh well, home sweet home.

Ours is cleaned, oil changed, winterized and put to bed in indoor storage. At the end of the month, the storage facility will box us in with boats & other winter guests, so no more outings till spring. Given that we store off-site it's hard to do much work on it over winter. I did pull the house battery tray assembly for sandblasting & powder coating. And already have my list of spring projects to be done, though. It just never stops.

I honestly could not imagine that much snow. I have made a few business trips north in the winter but luckily have never been caught in something like that. We have about two months of miserable heat and humidity and winters are pretty wet but I have never winterized my MH. Even in a unheated enclosed building, if the night temps drop below freezing, the inside of the building will seldom get below 50. Weather is a trade off , you pick your poison and deal with it.

In our case, we parked, as usual in November, thinking that we would get out earlier this year......say April or so. Never happened. We got involved with repairing a couple of rental houses and the whole dang summer got away from us. We sold one house and the other is under contract, so we just have started on our summer trip.


Yes we do live in Florida, so we don't have snow to worry about, but the summer was HOT! We will tour around Florida for a little while and get back in time for the elections.


Maybe next year we can actually get back out west again.


Cheers............


Tom

We cleaned out the fridge, packed the food, blew out the water lines and locked the door.

It all went from the NY house, to the MH and we are off to Florida.

We take a few weeks heading south, in the MH, visiting family before moving aboard our 35 ft trawler for the winter.

I have lived in the 'wasteland' all my life and it's great in the summer (except for the wind), and I can't wait for the year where we can get our lives in order and start spending our winters crowding around you down south.

Meanwhile I have started winterizing the coach. Food and such is all out. Hoping to drain the waterlines and blow them out tomorrow afternoon. Still hope to use the coach a few times locally (without water) til later November or the first big snowfall.

But hey, with a little luck and if the coach doesn't have too many snowdrifts around it, perhaps we can see ourselves going south for a month or so in Feb-Mar. Gotta start that journey sometime . . .

It's in the 90s here in central Texas. I'm hustling to fix the things that broke on our last trip before we had to the coast this weekend! I have a full list of things to do work on this winter in between trips.

Ours gets winterized in a couple of weeks and then off to the storage building until after tax season. Have to empty it this weekend and get it ready for winter.

I have to laugh at the snowfall projections of 36" being too much to handle. We average 120" a year and other than our seven foot in one week nightmare a couple of years ago, we have not lost a day of work in over 25 years. We are hardy souls here in Western NY and, hey, all that snow keeps the riff raff out!
