Is it spring yet?

So how's everyone coping with winter? I'm hoping to go out camping for Easter, anyone else have early spring plans yet?

I am counting the days until my new Rockwood 2702SS comes in for me to pick up. I have already paid for a seasonal site in NE Ohio and have several trips planed to Silver Lake Dunes MI, Lexington KY, Evansville IN and hopefully a few more.

I usually plan my first trip for the first or second weekend in March. I'm not sure yet, but I might camp next weekend. The next weekend looks more likely. Oh heck, why not both?

The crappie are bitin'!

the season is comming - if the conditions are right
The Famous Wildflowers of Borrego
Weather & Timing Matters
Listen to NPR comments about the FLOWERS


When will the flowers bloom? None of us knows for sure. Each year's bloom is unique in its variety, profusion, and timing. From late February through March, you can find blossoms on the desert floor. Rain is needed in small doses throughout the winter. Too little rain provides a poor climate for seed germination. Too much rain, and the seeds could rot or be washed away. Showers too early or too late in the season may not help the flowers bloom.
Temperature is also critical. Warm days are a good indicator of a full bloom ahead. If the sun gets too hot though, (over 85į in February / March) the seeds may become parched and seedlings scorched. Cool nights can assist flower seedlings by slowing the growth of competitors like grasses and mustards. However, very cold temperatures mean bad news for blossoms.
Along with all of these factors, the wildflowers must contend with the desert winds. Hot, arid winds may dry out the seeds before they have a chance to grow. High winds during the bloom may scatter the pollen before the next year's seeds have been produced.

To plan your visit to coincide with the peak of the bloom, take advantage of our Wildflower Postcard Notification service. For up-to-date information, call our Wildflower Hotline which is updated weekly.
If you should happen to miss the peak, take consolation in the fact that you've missed the peak crowds as well. A tranquil walk through the Anza-Borrego Desert will reward you any time of year.

Make plans now to spend time this spring in Beautiful Borrego. Reserve a room now at one the many fine lodging establishments in Borrego Springs before the rush begins.

We ordered our Roo 25RS today and it's est. delivery of April 18th. We are hoping to go the second weekend in May. It's my nephew's birthday and he loves having the party at a campground. Last year they had it a Lakeport, so maybe we will go somewhere else this time.

I was told that April ship dates will still be titled as 2012. I noticed your signature line says 2013. Did your dealer tell you different.

Forest River is no longer making the 2012 Roo 25RS. They sold a ton of them and are moving up to the 2013. Maybe it's just that model, I have no idea. I wanted the 2012 because it was $600 less, but we couldn't. The only change is they made the outdoor table and grill standard...totally not worth 600 bucks! I know someone else who just ordered the same camper and they are also getting the 2013. I supposed I should call Forest River on Monday to make sure our dealer isn't screwing with us though. Thanks for the heads up.

Our first "reservation" weekend is the second weekend in April, but I am sure the new rig will hit the road for a shake down within the next couple of weeks. Maybe a trip to Chattanooga, never been camping in the southeast part of the State.
