Don't Care If It Is Cold and Rainy

Leaving tomorrow for the first camp out of the season. Lousy spring in NE Ohio but Good Sam Chapter #6 will be at West Branch State Park this weekend. Rain and cool temps forecasted but our campfire will be fired up. As they say ' a bad day camping is better than being stuck indoors for another weekend '. Wish us well!

Did our first trip over the season Easter weekend in Arkansas. Basically rained the entire trip. Still loved it. Being back at parks, the smell of campfires. Have fun!

Sometimes i like camping in bad/cold weather, we stop at red box and pick up a bunch of movies and cuddle up in the rv.. I cant get my kids to do that at home, too many distractions, too much social media, but camping is true family time.. Have fun..

RVing near Hazlewood, MO ...hit by a tornado last night. 370 Lakeside RV Park , St Peters, MO...staff did an excellent job of notifications and getting folks to the bathhouse. One gentleman pulled in with an hours old 2013 Georgetown ...didn't even get his tow vehicle unhooked before heading to the bathhouse. He was the only one to receive any significant damage...rolled up awnings ripped off...jacks actually bent....and to make his troubles worse...he got a call, that his house had been pretty badly hit.
So, his RV is here...and he is home trying to cover his roof.

So glad everyone was safe...and good to know that staff was on their toes and did their job,

Glad to hear everyone is OK from the tornado. Things can be repaired easier than people. Here in NE Ohio a rainy morning gave way to a dry but cloudy afternoon. More rain expected tonight but clearing should begin by noon on Friday. All things considered, it is great to be camping again with friends.

Camping in Mountain View, AR. Got to CG and tuned into weather channel to learn a tornado was headed our way. Went into town and took shelter in Wal-Mart for over two hours. Lots of high winds and heavy rains but no damages to the CG or RV. Unfortunately, the tornado hit the nearby town of Botkinburg and caused some severe damages.

the thread title reminds me of the song "Plastic Jesus" (featured in Cool Hand Luke)
"I care if it rains or freezes, 'long as I got my plastic Jesus riding on the dashboard of my car"

The weather is never a factor for us we always have a great time. Sometimes we are more outside by the fire sometimes we are more inside enjoying our trailer. Some of our best memories were when it was raining. We bring movies and the Nintendo if it rains and firewood if it is dry or sometimes use the firewood and stand in the rain. RVing gives you so many options compared to being in a hotel.
