Well of course......

Taking the new camper on her maiden voyage in the morning and it's going to rain all day Georgia has been having a drought for some time now and let me plan one weekend and I break it. So if there are any Georgia folks out there "your welcome" and I hope I didn't mess up anyones plans.
On the lighter side the rest of the weekend should be great, a little cool but nice.

Having a similar problem in PA: picking up the "new to me" TT tomorrow morning, was planning on a weekend of camping locally, but it's gonna be so cold that the dealer advised me to winterize it. So no water. Then tonight, I get an inch of snow in my yard. WTF?

Thanks. Just had to vent and horse around a bit. I guess if I have any leaks I'll find them early. There is a bright side.

We don't know snow. But we are well verse in ice. Sometimes you think you need a crash helmet because of all the falling limbs and power lines.

Similar thing happened to me last year after I picked up my TT from the dealership. First it started off with extemely high winds, then one storm after another came in and ended up with expected snow on the way to Calico Ghost Town when I was taking my first trip. Because it happened so many times friends and family started asking if I had camping plans whenever it was suppose to rain. BTW - I live in sunny Southern California.

All of it was well worth the wait too. Good luck and take care!

I'm just south of Atlanta at the speedway. We are headed to FDR at Pine Mtn. It looks like the rain may hold off until this afternoon. Now if I can just get the others moving we might make it. Now where is my bucket? I have ice.

North Texas can thank us for the rain they got a few weeks back. We stopped there for a few days during our trip back home (IL to AZ) after picking up our new Roo. Apparently they had not seen rain for more than a month until we showed up...

On the bright side, it afforded us the ability to make sure we had no leaks in our new trailer...



BTW... Stormrider, cool avatar.
