Officially this is the end of our third season here but we get to come back next weekend to close up. I added two decks and a new screen house and we had the best weather. Looking forward to next year already......

We are winterizing our camper this weekend but will still go up till November for hunting...we just won't use the water. We will close up for good in early November. Question ~ what do you all take out of the camper over winter? Do you leave all the towels, dishes, etc? What about the bedding (after it is all washed, of course). This was our first year as a seasonal and we enjoyed it very much! Can't wait for next summer.

No towels, no clothes , no food, no bedding, leave the dishes. Use a few damprid buckets too. Keep fridge n freezer open.
Lots of bounce dryer sheets, in drawers, closets, cabinets, and everywhere.

All of our stuff is stored in bins after washing and bins are stacked in the camper for winter - take out anything paper, plastic or fabric that mice might chew !!!

We take home all linens, throw rugs and pots/pans, toaster, coffee maker, etc in our bottom cabinets. Every thing in the drawers like silverware, anything to do with cooking/serving food comes home. We do leave plates, bowls, coffee cups, turvis tumblers etc in the upper cabinets. Lots of fresh cab and Bounce sheets in every drawer and cabinet as well as scattered throughout the camper. Peppermint oil on cotton balls in garage and in the trailer too. Man it smells good when we open it up in the spring. Three damprid buckets too. I also leave the vent lid in the bathroom open about 1/8". On yeah, I take the tv's home too.

Closing up this weekend. Sad for the season to come to an end. I enjoyed seasonal camping. Although my 15 yr old DD thought it was boring to go to the same place every weekend. I am looking forward to a few road trips next summer. Planning to purchase a truck over the winter. I've signed for a seasonal site in a different campground for 2015.

We had a great season this year minus a couple curve balls, which life is like that. My family lost our black lab to cancer in the spring, and I lost our awning in an overnight rainstorm this past June. We have since rescued another dog who is adjusted to camping great and have replaced the awning. We shared our camper with an exchange student from Spain for a month and have a ton of great memories from this season. We are closing up Sunday and look forward to next year.

It's sucks when friends/fellow campers decide to pull out for one reason or another. We'll probably keep in touch via Facebook and they say they'll come back to visit from time to time but we'll see.

I also ended up with a bunch of "stuff" that they didn't want or need anymore. A piece of a deck, some wooden steps, bricks to surround the campfire ring, a couple of bicycles...

It's still bitter-sweet.

About how many cotton balls do you use? I read it has to be 100% peppermint oil with only a few drops per ball.
