Role reversal!

Remember when you folks "up north" (which is most of the US ) were wishing you were camping and I was enjoying our Roo? Well, summer has hit us full force ~ the heat, humidity, thunderstorms and bugs are making Florida seriously muggy. I suppose we could go to the beach, but will most likely will wait til the weather is better. Looking forward to the FROG campout in November

Sooooooo, enjoy your camping season ~ ~ and I will enjoy your posts about your adventures and your pix of our beautiful country~

Happy Independence Day!

I'll be thinking about you enjoying your Roo in January when I'm digging out of 2 feet of snow and the temp is 0 .

If you wait until November, the weather will get better.
I could not even think of spending summer in Florida unless
I had to for very good reason(s). Good Luck

Wow, I'm already reading about folks planning their last campout of the season. Summer did fly by ~ This will probably be a stupid question but why don't you camp in the fall? I get not camping when the roads are treacherous but beautiful fall days and chilly fall nights by a campfire sound amazing to me. Just curious.....

Some people call me crazy in north east ohio but I'm out from early April -November. Cool nights we run the heat and make a bigger fire. Fall camping is some of the best. This year in April it snowed on our trip. Oh well still was fun. My cousins are done and winterized after Labor Day. To me that's way too early. Enjoy your season how ever it may be but I try to wait until its a done deal.

Fall and winter camping (yup we LOVE camping in the snow) are our favorite time to be out. We don't actually camp much during the peak season. Too many people for our liking. There is NOTHING in the world like sitting by a crackling fire on a cool autumn evening or sitting by the campfire watching the snow fall. We are proud to say we've camped in every single month of the year here in the great white north and will continue to do so as long as we are able.

Get out there and camp!

You are absolutely right, it is pretty nice on the side of a mountain with skis on too.

Last year we started in April and camped until the beginning of November. This year it was May, due to time constraints. But we are thinking about a trip in November this year. I agree with you.....crisp, clear nights and a campfire. Nothing better!! We had some hot weather last week while camping and we actually didn't even light the fire that night. Wasn't the same. Can't wait until our October trip in three weeks. When you have to wear a coat to take your daily walk. When the leaves on the trees are brilliant orange and red. And when you can see your breath while sitting around the fire in the morning sipping on your hot chocolate, shooting the breeze with good friends. If weather would permit, we'd camp every month of the year. But January and February rear their ugly heads and digging through two or three feet of snow and ice doesn't appeal to me very much!
