We were feeling withdrawal symptoms last week so my wife and I went to our camper which is in storage, fired up the generator, turned on the heater, and spent some quality alone time. An afternoon nap never felt so good!

I'm in Colorado and it won't be till late April before we take it out again.

Welcome Ron. Your in a good place. The first step is admitting you have a problem. I once went on a multiple state many day camping bender that involved my entire family. It was awesome.

WOW 8 weeks until you head to Florida???? Moving from Maine to western Mass doesn't shorten the end of hibernation season. We just got turned on to RV'g when we lead the Windjammer to the wintering cave. First time I am really waiting for spring to arrive. Until then its ice fishing, snowmobiling and keeping the wood stove stoked.

Oh my. We found this post quite amuzing. Isn't this most of us ! Planning all the new mods we want to do and dreaming of the places we wish we could be. Happy Holidays Ken and DW

It's probably a sad sign that I'm looking forward to our camping trip right after Xmas, more than Xmas itself ;-)
Been booking up sites for our summer epic roadtrip. 6 sites booked, 13 more to book !

Well, you've got to run the generator every once and a while, and the propane may just freeze up if you don't use it! We just got our new MH this last spring, and tried to get out every chance possible, even if it was for one night. Last trip with the awesome COA group at the very end of October.

So even though the MH is out in the middle of the storage lot, it turns out that there's a lot of hard work needed over the winter - I've got a towel rack and a bunch of Command hooks that aren't going to install themselves.

I visited yesterday (to install a TV bought in black Friday sales).
Next visit probably won't be until weekend before Xmas (will be installing some pipe and duct insulation)
At least I can console myself with the thought that the weekend after that we'll be camping

[QUOTE=Steelframer;1039014]After more than 40 years of dealing with the 'White stuff', freezing my A## off, I sold the Stick and bricks in Wisconsin and moved to my 'New to me' stick and brick in Beautiful South Georgia.
Now I can be one of those 'annoying people' who talk about going camping all year long.

We lived in Wisconsin for 43 years and moved to Arizona in 2010 and love the weather!! Yeh it gets very hot in the summer but that's when we travel!
Couldn't take the cold weather for the LOOOOONG winters!

I forgot to mention the bottom pic of post #33 was taken Thanksgiving day back home.
This thread has me so worked up about not camping for the next 5 months I just couldn't stand not seeing the Windjammer parked in our yard so I took a ride to see how it was dealing with hibernating....much better than I. I opened the door to a wonderful aroma of peppermint. Unfortunately I couldn't fire up the heat and watch TV but for a fleeting moment I was in a warmer place...oh well retirement IS just around the conner.
