So it begins…

Just put the coach away for it's winter hibernation and already looking forward to the long doldrums of winter to be over… NEVER really has been my favorite time of the year. Anyone else put their rigs away yet?

Yes, I'm whining…

How long until spring again??

Anyway, have a great winter everyone and let's hope it's a short, mild one! We can get clobbered here in the northeast.

To those that are fortunate enough to head south in their coaches to hibernate with them, safe travels and enjoy!!

I just checked out the pictures you have of what you've done. Looks awesome! Nice job, very nice paint work and really cool that you have a facility to do all that in! I like how you continued the stripes over the slide cheeks. Looks great! What are you doing to it this year?

Hopefully, they're projects/improvements you enjoy doing! I don't mind doing things like that, it's the ones that become cans of worms that I hate!

Best of luck!

We're headed out next week for our "last hurrah" before winterizing it Halloween weekend. Right now Spring seems so far away I make it through the winter by planning next years trips & catching up on entering campground reviews.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Washed and winterized mine and rolled it into the garage this past weekend. It's plugged in and tucked away for the winter.

Hate to say this to you folks.

Loaded up ready for travel , despite the exchange rate, I'm heading south ( Monday ), current 94 at my winter site , I know that won't last; but there's snow visible from where I am right now.

South bound and down , I'm loaded up and Snowbirding .

Last weekend was my last outing for this year also.......I don't like the cold air and nights that are rolling into Penna.
So, when I arrived home on Sunday, took all the food out, then into the garage and dropped the engine oil, and all the filter's. After that end is done, I will turn it around and service the genset............then is a long Winter sleep for it......till next spring......although I will do a couple of winter camp outs in the shop over the winter to help break the winter blues up........

We are still using our coach, and in fact we are in week 8 of a 12 week trip. Currently in New Hampshire (absolutely spectacular scenery) working our way west then south. But we never completely put her to winter time sleep, we still take her out on snow skiing trips parking at campgrounds that are open all winter!

I'm in Michigan and I just wheeled and waxed ours today in preparation for a big family meet up next weekend.

After that it's a couple more weekends in northern lower Michigan. Then it get winterized but only for a couple weeks because we're off to Florida between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It'll get winterized again when we get back right before Christmas unless we leave it down there and fly back for the holiday and go back in January.

I would stay down there right through the new year but the wife says we have to be home for the holidays.

See, this is why I never understood why people choose to live in that god forsaken arctic waste land north of a line about the Tn/ Ky border. ☃ no, there is not enough room for all of you to move down here. If it helps your feelings any, it did snow here once a couple of years ago so I can relate, sorta!

Yes, I'm sure that must have pained you to type that!

Sounds great! Safe travels, have a great winter and try to send some of that mild winter weather up north please!

We're taking the coach south in the spring, when our kids are out of school and we're looking very forward to it already!

Just replace the wood trim around the slide outs, reseal the roof exterior and get a few if the fogged windows redone and take some time off this winter.

Thank you for looking and asking.
