Boy, did I make a mistake?

This has been our first summer with an rv. Sadly, I had to put her away for the winter. All winterized, battery out and Irish spring shavings and bounce sheets everywhere. Since we have a large back yard that Is where I parked it. WHAT A MISTAKE! Now every time I look out of the kitchen window I see the trailer. Dam!

I got it worse! Took the TV and XLR to inside storage last Thursday. Now I look out on the large rectangle of dirt in the grass where it used to be. Sad.

I know the feeling.....

The only saving grace is I own it, Last year I was making payments on it as it sat, that really sucked....

This is my view in the back yard...

Come on guys - lighten up. Hate to see my rig just sitting there in the yard too. Winterized it last week and started with the campground guides immediately to see who's open first next year,got the dealers big catalog and started planning for what I needed to add. Summer was a little too busy camping to get too much done so I spent the weekend working on the mods I've seen on the forum. It'll keep me busy for a while - at least till the snow flies

Storage??? Up here in the PNW storage is for the lawn mower. We camp year round and work on our mods at the campground.

Same here in central Oregon. We just got home last night after being blown off of a mountain. I will winterize but we won't stop going all winter. You get pretty good at the winterizing process when you do it 5 or 6 times a winter or more!

Our problem here in Florida in the winter is getting into a campground because the snow birds take all the sites....really depressing because in the summer it is too dam hot to get into the woods. Boon docking is out of the question in the summer....
