We were hoping to have a late September/early October trip somewhere fairly close to home. Unfortunately my clumsiness resulted in an accident that dislocated the middle finger on my left hand after our visitors from Japan went home after Labor Day. I just got the splint off two days ago. and it's still very uncomfortable.
With only one fully-serviceable hand, driving is difficult and setting up/breaking down camp would be nearly impossible. We're headed into winter now, though you wouldn't know it by the beautiful sunny day we had today. Overnight lows are around 40F already, so odd snap freezing lows are a possibility. It's winterisation time before the 19th, I think.
Ah, well, maybe next year, but chances don't look too good for August/Sept. The week of Aug 16-23 contains my sister's 70th birthday, my wife's 70th and our 50th wedding anniversary. Probably sister and brother will come over from the UK for three weeks.
It gets very frustrating to have the MH sitting in the driveway and not being able to use it, except as overflow sleeping accommodations!
