We were going to Broken Bow Oklahoma on the 26th for a few days of fly fishing, but unexpected family visits will keep us home until January 2...


For the OP... two words... Move south!


Sorry, couldn't resist!

Being from Manitoba, I'm parked until May. If that's not bad enough, I parked it where I can see it from our dining room table! Dam.

Hi. My name is Ken and I'm a campaholic.

I first admitted to my addiction a few winters back when I found myself going out to the camper in the middle of winter. I would wear several layers of clothing and jackets, grab a beer and sit in the camper either watching TV with the electric fireplace running, or just fiddle around with something I would convince myself need be done before the first trip of the spring.

After a while, I found that did not quench my thirst to be out camping. I found myself hiding in my office or bedroom paging through the various camping magazines that I would sneak into the house.

I really discovered I was out of control when I would go on line and look for items to purchase for the camper and actually start buying them. The bank account dwindled and the DW confronted me and made me admit to my problem.

Now that I have admitted to the problem, I try not to spend much money buying items on line throughout the winter, and I try to make less frequent trips out to sit in it.

But I am here to say that the craving never really goes away.

Thank you for listening.

Ken

Welcome ken. We all know how you feel. I sneak out to camper after wife goes to bed. It's sad I know. Even if I just stand in there for a few minutes. Do they have a pill or shot?

You are not alone. I do the same thing. I have gone out to my camper nearly everyday making improvements and enjoying the peace and quiet. You just need to tell your wife you are not enjoying yourself. You are really out there to keep the mice out!

Great minds think alike. That's the excuse I started using last winter and so far it's still working

While I would love to winter camp if the TT was already on site, I have no desire to brave icy WV hills to drive to a destination.

But, I use it everyday as my decompression chamber after work. I keep musical instruments, jigsaw puzzles, books etc. in it, and have a really comfy double sleeping bag on the queen bed that makes the TT a great napping place.

I live on a riverbank anyway, with great views out the window, so who needs to go anywhere? (Until that camping itch kicks in come March.)
