Camping addiction

It's only been two weeks since I winterized my camper. Already I'm at a loss. Going through camping withdrawals. Will be a long 8 weeks till first trip in 2016. I do not know how i will manage.

Planning trips for 2016 will help but it just does not replace the thrill of packing up the rig and going and enjoying the outdoors.

I'm still to young to retire so I will have to plow through. It's only eight weeks,I can make it.

Hello my name is Ron and I'm a campaholic!

PS. This is a funny and satirical comment and is not meant to diminish or offend anyone that has a problem with addictions.

I feel your pain!

We just took delivery of our new 5th wheel in October and only got to use it three short trips before having to put it to bed for winter.

At least you get to go in 8 weeks. We won't even be able to think about going anywhere until at least mid/end of April with the weather we get here, high atop the Allegheny Mountains.

That's why I'm taking it to Florida in January for a week

Same here. In 8 weeks around here the ground will still be covered in s***. Feel free to fill in the other three letters however you wish.

Wow. I really see your pain. The older I get the less I want to see the white stuff. Spent my first 30 years in central Maine. Moved to Maryland then just across the border into PA. I am hoping in 14 more years to be able to escape seeing any white stuff. Or any that sticks around. They say Belize has nice weather, but I can,t drive my Grey Wolf there. 😏. Stay warm my friend. Summer will be here soon.

Camping addiction

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.

Idaho, Wyoming and South Dakota! Now I'm one of the annoying people. Camping season is about to start.

I feel ya. We took delivery on our fiver in October and got to use it once for a shake down trip and then winterized it. Luckily we're breaking it out next week for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas since that is an easier solution for where to stay while visiting the wife's parents.

We need to start working up plans for some trips for additional shakedowns in March. Mid April we're going to be boondocking for a week and having a serious issue then will be less than desirable.
