OMG! I feel soooooooo sorry for you!
In the meantime, wearing a columbia ski coat with the liner and hoping the dusting of snow doesn't stick around.

but its beautiful outside! Just got back from a snow machine ride to the ridge…stunning.
This week we are going to Fairbanks to view the start of the ice sculpting competition.
During the summer I am now spending more time gold panning and doing …very well!

We have no traffic signals for over 120 miles and the only traffic while driving to work are caribou and moose standing in the road.

The winters are actually great they are just a little to long thus the reason for our new escape vehicle……...the Solera.

RVCHICK drop by and visit sometime...

Very pretty Toolman But, I still like down here on the Gulf Coast. Can't take the cold anymore. It's 66 degrees right now here in New Orleans. Quite chilly, but sunny and no wind.

OC: Come on back to North Carolina. We camped in 14-degree nights Thanksgivig week in the foothills. Didn't even break a sweat while setting up or breaking camp. We'll be camping all winter up here.

Adding to the Misery of our northern friends...a chilly 53 deg today as I drove to work (2 more years then DONE with THAT daily commute!)

OC should be much warmer than the frozen wastes here in Huntsville AL

Toolman, your place is beautiful. We also have a 2013 24R. We are near Denver, CO in Westminster, we want to visit Alaska with our Solera. Maybe 2015. We are expecting the arctic air here this week. So far our winter has been great. But planning a trip to AZ mid Jan. Have you driven your Solera outside of AK?

Well it was almost 60 degree today in Iowa, but the worst is on the way suppose to be in the 20's and teens by this week end. not as bad as Alaska but I'm sure we'll see some of that before Spring gets here.
