First trip of the season

Hey everybody, what do you like to do for your first outing of the season.

Do you like to take a short little weekend trip or a nice long outing of a couple weeks or more. My wife and I are having a long drawn out conversation going back and forth.

She would prefer a 3-4 day weekend trip, while I want to go on a long trip. We live in south eastern Ontario, 1000 Islands area so I'd like to go either east toNova Scotia, or go west to the Rockies.

A nice long trip and get the rust out of my body.

What do you guys normally do, give me some advice......we can't go across the border so it will be all Canada.

We normally do a 3 day trip at Easter with friends somewhere fairly local.

That way anyone with problems that have snuck up during the Winter can be checked out and fixed, or repaired when we or they get home.

Might be a problem this year with so many snowbirds that would normally still be down South using full hook-up sites. Also Easter is pretty early this year.

Here's hoping the border will open this Summer.

I like to do a short trip of about 2 to 3 hours from home to shake out any issues. If something breaks I can get it fixed fairly locally, and if nothing goes wrong I can have a nice weekend!

Usually do a close shake down for 3-4 days before heading out to make sure everything working well. This year doing the shake down than 2 weeks later heading west for a month.
