Cancelling

We have to book 5 months ahead for provincial parks in Canada and for what they charge to book and then cancel, it has to be really bad for us not to go.

Rain ~ always go. Heavy winds may delay but will head out to see if the forecast is accurate. Can always pull over until it subsides. Snow ~~ depends on how much. Stay on interstates as much as possible. Only problem is the truckers do not slow down no matter road conditions. Delayed ONE trip due to an ice storm. Would have delayed that one even without the 5er and with 4 wheel drive. It took a 2 day delay to have safe roads.

We live in S Louisiana, if we cancelled for rain we would never get anything done. We have learned we do not melt so, we simply go and enjoy ourselves, rain or shine!

I love camping in the rain. Its cool, the smells are amazing, and the lack of dust really ups it for me. I did it for years in just a tent.

The trailer in the rain is a bonus. Its an opportunity to fire up the kettle, make something hot and enjoy a book, or grab the kids and play some cards.

Cancel for rain? LOL! The stories I could tell you about camping in the rain. Fortunately we were the ones in a nice, dry trailer when friends were in tents. One time we arrived and the CG host relocated us because our original area "tended to flood." Yep, next morning we woke up and the picnic tables in that area were floating. When it was time to leave he had to pull our trailer out with his tractor but what memories were made that week-end. And then there was Nauvoo, Il and then let me tell you about the time at Tahquamenon Falls, Mi. and so on. Enjoy the adventure (unless it's a hurricane).

Never had to cancel a trip for rain. We are planning to go to Little Pee Dee SP in South Carolina this Sunday. We will call the park on Saturday and if everything is ok then we go as planned if not then we just go with the flow. Took a 2 months trip last year to the Grand Canyon and we never even considered the weather. we are planning a 4 month trip next year to Yellowstone NP and points west but we will go if the Lord allows us to still be on this earth then. As several have said in previous post, it is better to go camping in any weather (other than Hurricane) than it is to stay home. It will rain no matter what so enjoy your camper and the great outdoors.

Many forecasts chsnge...so unless its a weather alert or dangerous situation, we would not cancel. Just be prepared w/rain gear, rain boots, umbrella & games for inside fun!
Bottle of wine always helps too!! Lol!

Living in the Eastern Sierra I follow the weather patterns closely. If snowing or the roads are really icy I will cancel or else travel in the afternoon after the roads thaw out.
I travel through the Mojave desert alot and the frequent severe winds. Numerous times I've pulled over and waited it out til morn. or delay my trip a day until they subside if really bad.
Rain? No problem, I'm always happy to get the free carwash! I just don't enjoy muddy dogs so much.
