We live in upper New York State. The weather here has been perfect for camping June July and August. It's been 80s and 90s just about every day and we had one day of rain for two hours. I kind a hate the fact they were in a drought but for camp and you could've asked for nicer weather. we had our trailer parked at Brennan Beach resort on Lake Ontario for a whole month and it was just fantastic. We had one of the beach elite sites with beautiful views and couldn't ask for anything nicer.

Yes I would have to agree this has been a tough summer. Great weather during the week, but the weekends have been poor.

We are trying to get out probably 1 last time next weekend for the long weekend and so far the weather is not looking great.

Kinda sad actually,

Here in st Louis, the weatherman has added "chance of showers" to the forecast just about every single day since March. I always check because I ride my motorcycle to work on days where there is no rain called for... I think I have rode in 4-5 times total this year.

It has been hot and dry here. Sadly, very windy and the waves high on the Atlantic so the boat did not bust the inlet often.
Coolest day all summer was 88, the rest in the high 90s and lows in the 80s. Not much rain either. We spent 2 days at the Dells in 1984......cannot remember the weather but the girls were young and enjoyed it.

Except for family demands.....we don't camp in the summer -- crowds, kids, and dogs.

But, the rest of the year, we are traveling, with short trips home.

Don't like to "sit" in a CG; we are travelers, not campers.

It is all about perspective. It sounds like perfect camping weather to me. When you go weeks on end at 100+ and no rain, this sounds great.

I'm sure it would be if we were out for weeks on end....but then again, if we were out during the week, we'd have perfect weather! Unfortunately, I have to work to pay for this habit!

I've done alot of camping in this year, maybe 4-5 wks. but with very little "fun relaxing stuff." Mostly using my rv to move, visit my elderly mom, rv service or doctors apptmts in metro areas( NOT fun driving.) I had been planning on a big long Fall relaxing getaway, then life's little surprises;an expensive family emergency, then being told a couple days ago that I need $4,000. in unplanned dental work- rethinking now my travel plans for this year. Maybe I'll just vacation here at home; it's a resort area with many campgrounds; there are about 10 within 5 miles of me, very quiet in the Eastern Sierra this time of year and beautiful Fall foliage. What a bargain!! Hopefully, next year will be better with no surprises.

Whatever the weather or camping issues, it sure beats staying at home and watching old reruns on television. I choose to be happy and live life to the fullest regardless of circumstances. Let go and let God. Peace be with you my friends.

Our last trip of the season is scheduled for Columbus Day weekend in early October. I will winterize the RV plumbing upon our return and cover it up soon thereafter.
