Call me crazy, but wouldn't it have been less work, less cost, and more space to have just bought a nice, used house trailer and set up on your lot?

thats the fun part. they would not finance me a mobile home and ones i could get financed for they would not let me bring into the park, they had to sell it to me. guess when living space is a premium you do what you can do!

Well we had to pull out. Flood waters + releasing 450 cubic meters / second from the dams = evacuation notice. it wasnt easy but we got the skirting off (thats another story) and hooked the hitch back up and pulled out. got some photos of the after math of dragging the trailer out. right before the driveway it sunk about half a wheel deep!

Bumber! I can relate with the flood warnings! We moved our TT to a friends house on high ground for 3 weeks while we "waited for the water", hoping it would stay in the levees, which it has. Seems like it took forever for the threat to go away, but when it does, it's like hooking up fo the first time again! Hope you're back at your site soon. Good luck and keep your feet dry!

I understand how you feel. My parents live on the lake, the lake was once part of the Mississippi River. When the River was at it's crest a few weeks ago, being held back by the levees, it would be well over the roof of my parent's house. A constant worry for weeks. Fortunately the levees all held and every thing worked out fine. I hope all goes well for you and your family. Keep us posted, our thoughts are with you!

the "river" is now cresting two highways, the berms around some of the houses and villages and is still rising. golf courses under water, only campground is right full with full timers and rich people.

its gotten to the point with the gawkers and lookie lues that the police are issuing tickets to people violating the road closed signs and holding up traffic etc. sad but its true!

my mother is on the way to saskatoon today and she has had to take several detours, some places water is over the road up to the bottom of the van, the railway is washed out, and that is all just around weyburn, sk. ALL of that water is yet to come down here! and another 2" of rain foretasted for tonight!

Just have to ask, which railroad is washed out? I work for CN in South Louisiana. We had a bridge wash out a few weeks ago down here due to the flooding. All is good now.
