Do you go even in bad weather?

We have a trip planned for the last week of September. It is to our favorite spot and would be our last trip of the season. The long range forecast is for cool, cloudy, rainy weather for the whole week. Would you still go?

You are looking too far out for the weather forecast. It will change.

Being a newbie to hauling a TT. The only thing that would give me pause is big wind on an interstate. I hate watching my knuckles turn white while my butt is leaving a hickey on the seat.

Yes! Our attitude is we can either be at home in the rain or in the trailer in the rain, trailer wins everytime. There are always breaks in rain to go for walk or bike around campground, weather very seldom stops us!

X2.

And more so, now that we've rented out our house and are on a year+ long trip, not going is no longer an option.

The only times we would not go was when we were in our popup and if the weather would be for all weekend. If we went with bad weather in mind, we would leave our pups at doggie hotel as it would not be fair to them. Click image for larger version

I love that picture. Over the years I have had two that would happily lay in a puddle where it was not frozen yet. I think those guys can deal with any weather but the high heat.

Absolutely we would go. Like it was stated before. There's usually a break in the weather that will give you some time to do things. The end of September is too far to accurately predict a weather forecast. It will change. One of the best weekends my wife and I had was a similar situation. Hurricane coming up the coast. Made a last minute decision to wait a few hours to leave. We ended up leaving in the late afternoon and made to the OBX around 1am. Woke up the next day to the most perfect weather you could ask for.

Yes we would go....... an extended forecast that far off around is going to change weekly or more often around here. Not camping but a friend of mine decided not to go to the beach because it was going to be rainy "next week" It ended up being cool & sunny (In the 80s). He missed out on a great week.

The only way we would not go on a trip if in the "next' few days... a hurricane was headed directly for the coast, and for the area that we were going.

As has been said a raining day camping is better that a sunny day at work

I'd rather be camping. We spent 2 1/2 days in June in Maine showers most of the day still had a great time. Nothing like rain on the roof to put you to sleep
