But to each his/her own right?
I can say that this season has FLOWN by way too fast and October is round the corner. I'm not happy bout it.
X2 in mid-Missouri. We used to winterize our boat on Lake of the Ozarks the first weekend in November, and try to do about the same with the tt. The good thing about this is that you can de-winterize, use it, and re-winterize fairly easily and quickly. With the boat, it was two engines, generator, water system, ice maker, least a full day's job, sometimes even longer.

Still have at least three trips scheduled. One in mid September for a fall color trip around Traverse and Charlevoix area. October trips will be to sterling state park for fishing. Likely winterize first week of November. I do like the idea of heading to florida though!

Yeah, but you dont get to drive in freezing rain and snow, shovel 4ft of snow, rake bags and bags of fall leaves. haha

seriously though... just got back from Orlando and lost a bunch of money at an amusement park there. lol I've been to Ft Lauderdale, palm beach and Miami. What a nice state you live in.

You should be able to camp in MD through Oct and possibly into Nov depending on temps. We have been known to winterize for cold snaps, take it to a campground, dewinterize for a trip and then winterize again. Winterize g is easy and relatively quick to do. You can even save the bottles the pink stuff comes in, capture it back as you run it out of the taps and reuse it later.

X2. No winterizing for us - year-round camping.

I'm in FL near the GA border and have plans to fit in a trip or 2 each month, even if just the weekend getaway variety, since I'm still very much full time worker. Heck, there's even a BBQ festival at one of our or erred spots - Flamingo Lake in FL- the end of November!

Plus plan on watching football under the awning while downing a few adult beverages!

Very Thankful

Gosh, I am so glad that we are full-timers now. No need to worry about when our last camping trip will be anymore. We just move south towards Fall. Yet we still have been known to go back up the mountain to our kids' place at 7200' elevation. It is absolutely amazing to be cuddled up in our nice warm trailer when we know it is pretty darned cold out there. We got a great tip from a guy who used to camp in Alaska. He told us not to worry about our pipes freezing unless it got down to around 20 degrees overnight. That might work good if it didn't get down to 20 until close to morning. We would rather play it safe. We make sure to put enough water into our fresh water tank and then pick up and stow away the fresh water hose overnight. Has not failed us yet!

Southern Ontario here. One trip in September to Inverhuron for a extended weekend and later in October to Birch Run and if weather co-operates Pinery Provincial Park in November. If we get snow I will winterize early.
