Booo-Hoooo, we are now winterized!!

This afternoon while the sun was shining and it was in the mid-60's, we winterized our fiver. It is a sad day. We have spent 100+ nights in it, but DH had a complete knee replacement on Sept 26; we have seen a neurologist about his continuing back pain and he has had a steroid injection; AND his right knee is scheduled to be replaced on Dec 11.

He has done great with his left knee and if we could just get his back pain controlled, we could continue to camp, but it has been down past freezing a couple of nights last week, so just to be safe, we have "pink-juiced" it.

If his right knee does as well as his left, we may set out for the warm south for a week or so after Christmas since the kids get 3 weeks for the holiday.

Spring break can't get here soon enough for me, but I do hate wishing my life away.

Our best wishes to you for a quick recovery. We are in south central Missouri and are hoping to squeeze a few more weekends out of the season, before winterizing. So far, no frost here!

We spent the sunny weekend getting ours ready to cover. Ran out of vacation time and hoping the rain is on its way. Northern California isn't as lucky as S.CA and a normal winter includes rain and snow. Since we're in a drought the rain is very welcomed.
Good Luck, I'm slowing heading toward the knee replacement hoping I have a few more years before than.
