Our season is over

Our camping season has reached it's end. We made our final trip last weekend up to Acadia National Park in Maine. We will spend the next couple of weekends getting our TT ready for it's long winter slumber. We've gone alot of places and had tons of fun but will now start counting down to our first trip of the 2019 season to Ft Wilderness in mid April. For those of you still going, enjoy your travels.

One more trip (to the North Shore), then wait for spring. I had to run out to the storage facility and winterize the trailer last night because overnight temps were supposed to sit at 30d for 1/2 the night, and I really don't want to replace water lines.

He IS south, in North Carolina just like us. We also camp all winter. Camper won't freeze up while we're in it, and we end up winterizing and dewinterizing between winter trips. Easy and worth it, as we really enjoy camping without stifling heat and humidity.

Just this morning we used our heat for the first time this year, thanks to a cold front that came behind the tropical storm. Probably back to A/C this afternoon.

I'm in the south as well but we get some pretty cold weather in the winter it can get to the single digits. I agree with the heat thing this weekend the highs are in the 60's lows in the upper 40" that is perfect camping weather for us. we can actually enjoy the campfire.

Yes! Enjoy that fire.

We have never camped in single digits, but occasionally in the teens at night, and it almost always warms up nicely the next day in our area.

Have woken up to snow a couple of times over the years, and that is neat.. if you don't have to be anywhere. Wouldn't want to tow in it.

Have fun out there.

Here in the southwest desert our camping season is just beginning!

We don't winterize...but summerize the 5'ver.

Summer is too hot to camp (110+ degrees every day of the week) unless we go north to the mountains, but the wintertime is great weatherwise!

This will be my first winter down here so I'm not sure how hard finding a spot to stay will be with all of the snowbirds coming to town right now and in the next few weeks.

Our season is just beginning! Well, June - Aug we pretty much shut down. Too crowded then and too much noise. Leaving Sunday for Maggie Valley, home a couple weeks, then Charleston for 10 days. A couple weeks home for Christmas and Dec 31 we head to Fl. We will enjoy a few more trips then before school lets out then we just fish the Atlantic.
