Except for extreme weather I would go camping anyway.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Yes. We have gone many times during inclement and forecasted inclement weather. Long range forecasts are notoriously incorrect. Forecasts can be incorrect - especially in the Southeast - for places nearby that can have vastly different weather. Unless the forecast is highly reliable and really dismal we go.

In SW PA you either camp in the rain or you don't camp. Only 64 days a year that don't include precipitation. To see sunshine we go to Ohio campgrounds.

Rain, snow, wind or sunshine, yes we would, why, when we did tent camping way back then, it never stopped us. We all been taught to be prepare anyways. The only thing that will stop us are wildfires, road closures and family emergencies.

Yes- still go. Weather changes at the drop of a hat. Would be horrible to miss your last camp out of the year and then it turned out to be beautiful. Go!

YES! Rain gear, a couple of good books, a deck of cards and we're off. Love sleeping in the RPod in the rain!

Ha Ha, Yes there is B and B, We love New Mexico where the sun is always shining!
It takes a while to save up to afford the fuel, so we don't get there often enough.
We have learned to adapt to the crappy weather here and get out most every weekend anyway.

You are all right about the dependability of a forecast a month away. We are defenately going, I was just wondering what you guys would do. The forecast is for highs in around the 50 mark and lows in the low 40's. Cloud and rain most of the week. I guess I forgot to mention that we will be going to Tulibee Falls in Manitoba. This is one of the provinces nicest campgrounds. My only real concern is that there is about 30 miles of gravel that will turn to slop if it rains. Oh well, that's what soap is for.
