I'm tired of waiting too. Next year things are going to be different. There will be some cold weather camping and some trips to area's with better weather. I'm pretty close to being set up for most situations and plan to be OnTheGo.

Good advice from someone (greenenvy1) who has been there - many times ...
watch your brake usage in the snow. I like to use the manual slide on the brake controller and use the trailer brakes independently of the truck brakes. And as was said above leave plenty of space between you and traffic ahead. I like to run about 5-10 mph slower and let everyone pass on by that way I rarely end up in a traffic bottleneck when everyone else decides to step on brakes for no reason.

Although we've been experiencing Spring-like weather since the first week in Feb., it will officially be SPRING at 6:02 am(CST) today.

Our first "definite" trip will be here in a little less than 2 weeks. If the extended forecast is to be believed, it looks like it's going to be nice at least one day!

I am starting to think Spring will be here around the 4th of July. I probably have about a 1’ of snow in the yard and the snow piles in places are 5’ tall. Only place I have seen the soil is on the south facing hill, and it keeps getting covered up. The snow this year seems to be almost solid ice. We have had a lot more rain this winter than normal.

With how it looks and what I am hearing for our extended forecast I am not sure I will have the HTT out of storage until early May, I was hoping to pull it out Easter weekend, but that will not happen. We have not had a 40 degree day since last fall, and I am hearing the S word in the forecast for next week again. Maybe spring is coming, but I think it might be lost.
