  • Exercise - bike trainer, swim, run, XC Ski. Well ... That's all the time, but I get to throw in the skiing now.
  • Get caught up on the other hobbies - In my case that's cooking, pheasant hunting, a few others.
  • Work - my company's busy season is January through April. But, we're slow from June through September. Not so bad considering Wisconsin weather.

My daughter and I winter camp here in Mi.
We have a great time sledding, snowshoeing and huge campfires.
We use a ceramic heater in our mini lite 2306.

We headed out to Idaho. We don't have to put up with the snow birds and old retired people. I'm only 67 and not old enough to go South for the winter yet.

My wife & I enjoy seeing indoor RV shows around the area that start in the last part of January here in Missouri. Even though we can't afford a new camper right now, we love to see new floorplans of RV's. Quite different from seeing a black & white picture diagram to actually viewing the product. And we also love to see new camping gadgets coming out. But we really like to visit with other campers and ask questions of likes & dislikes of their trailers.

We are fortunate to live where we can camp year-round. The Holidays have kept us busy, but we're planning a trip for mid January.

Blasphemy you say...

There's not much to life without camping or planning for a good outing. We're planning for an ice fishing trip this January and planning our other 2012 outings. We're figuring out dutch oven recipes (using the the in-house oven). There's a lot of camping activities to do in the wintertime, without actually setting sail on the open road.

I perish the thought of life without camping!

so far 12 days of camping planned for 2012.
