Gosh, Bob, that looks terrible compared to the weather we're having in the Fayette Ridges of PA. It's cold, but it's dry.

We have had so much rain in the past few weeks at my home base I was sure I would be driving in it to my winter host position yesterday. I really lucked out. The rain stopped yesterday morning about 5:30am and the sun was out as soon as it came up. All I got a little wet was my feet while hooking up.

Straight ahead of my site is a little dip that doesn't have gravel in it and it was wet and soft. I really didn't want to back through this area and then drive back threw it towing my 5'er. Even with 4 wheel drive I was concerned it might sink. I had always heard it was possible to hook up a fifth wheel other than directly in front, but I had never done it, but this was the time to explore the option. So I backed in at approx a 30 degree angle which would keep my truck on hard ground and also allow me to get the 5'er around the low spot when I drove off. I was very careful backing in taking is very slow an adjusting the pin box height several times to fine tune where it needed to be. All worked and nothing was damaged. Here is a picture after I hooked up. I was rather pleased with myself and I drove out with no mud issues.

The rest of the short trip to my new host position was nice and sunny an dry.
