Down range in Utah isn't much different. Rain, snow, rain, more snow. I bought a new trailer this spring & with as much water as we're getting I'm starting to wonder it I would have been better off getting a boat instead.

Still snowing a little in Calgary but it has let up. I have decided I am NOT going to shovel the driveway today. the family and I are not going to even open a door outside today. Great day to watch movies!

Ok all, my weather guy tells me camping is back on in one week. Although I am still waiting to do my PDI on my unit, I may not be camping in one week.

(still major snow on the ground)

Got to be positive , I know I can,

Seeing as we have a lot of folks from the Prairies in here; when do you typically de-winterize your trailer?

I am planning a camping trip for May 13; and of course I was hoping to have a dry run beforehand; as I took possesion in the fall with my trailer already winterized.

Could be, I have been through there a few times.

As far as de-winterizing, I usually do the RV and my race car about the 1st of April, but not this year, I have a bunch of work I need to do to the RV, and I also need to get a bunch of work done on the car befor the first race on May 14th, 15th, but it has been so cold I can barley hold onto the wrenches. We are looking at higher temps here starting tomorrow, so hopefully I can get some work done. Need the car and RV ready to go for the first race, then we are headded to Rocky Mountain House for some R&R (unless they still have a bunch of snow)

finally

Hello there Bear, I am writing from New Brunswick, we have had snow and crazy rain and even crazier wind, but I think spring is finally here. Had a nice day today and going to be picking up our new camper on tuesday,keep your fingers and toes crossed. I have a brother living in Athabasca and he keeps filling me in on your weather.

Yup we camped at Mcclean creek near Bragg Creek and believe it or not but the campground was pretty full , the camp ground care taker told me there were 145 campers out for the weekend, and ther was still tons of snow.

I'd post pictures but I don't know how.
