Come this May she's put up with me for 32 years.

Same here lol. Was -13C last night... but shouldn't be much longer now.

Meanwhile, wifey is shopping for linens, dishes, new mattress. Even not camping we're doing a good job of spending money on camping lol

Hey Yall:

Antifreeze is either ethylene glycol (auto use) or propylene glycol..RV stuff is propylene glycol and the "ol" ending in a chemical name denotes a form of alcohol. I found this interesting piece of info on RV antifreeze...it aint as nontoxic as we would like to think.

Magnesium on fire...that brings back memories. Growing up we had a friend whose dad worked for the Orlando Sentinel and back in the 70s, the printing presses used a magnesium stamped sheet to create each page. Brian would get these plates and we would take a torch and light em up! Talk about blinded by the light, those things would stop traffic on our little neighborhood street and light up about 2 acres of land.

So my friend Bobby determined his dad's Lawn Boy had a magnesium deck...and before anybody could stop him, he took a torch and lit his dad's self propelled 21 inch beautiful green rear bagger Lawnbawn on fire!.... it was a sight to see, oh the glory...oooh the humanity

Thanks Smokyroo. Now we know.

padave6565 & DageonYar hang in there. It won't be too much longer. If your like me you've tinkered with the trailer all winter and have it just about ready to go.

RV Guy, you think this thread is funny? Just imagine what it might be like sittin' around the campfire with some of us!

Good luck and happy camping!

Grhodes...

I love camping, I really do, but I really love being on the water and I understand the pent up winter blues and wanting to be out. I could spend my days on the water on the boat and my nights under the stars camping...spring cant come soon enough for me. I cant imagine living any further north than I already do...

I have a boat winterizing story...I have a freshwater tank and stern shower and a little sink in the cabin of my boat. I use the pink stuff every winter. But this past winter I forgot to open the seacock to the raw water washdown system. There is an inline strainer with a clear plastic cap before the washdown pump. So when we use the washdown pump we open the seacock and then close it before getting underway. Well water stays in the strainer and the system froze and the plastic strainer expanded and cracked. Honestly I hope that is all that is broken and the pump housing is fine. I found it last weekend while doing our spring shakedown cruise on Lake Hartwell in SC. Doing the little things with our TTs makes all the difference. Lessons learned through the school of hard knocks

So here is to a quick spring for you...I cant wait to get out...going camping in Fla in 10 days!!!! Ahh, warm Florida....
