A very sad day

Well, we just finished our last trip in our rookie year of owning a TT. We went to a campground that let the kids go trick or treating in the afternoon on Saturday. We all dressed up like smurfs, it was a kodak moment. Later Saturday night, they had a family dance party. That was a blast watching my kids and there cousins dance the night away.
This was the first time we needed to use heat in the TT. We used an electric space heater and it worked great. The wife was nervous about it but I told her to trust me. For once in my life, it went as well as I imagined. I took off work on Monday so I could winterize the TT. That was much easier than I thought it was going to be.
I just wanted to say one more time, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THIS PAST YEAR.Everything was so new to me, but this site let me ask hard and easy questions, without the fear of looking stupid or being made fun of. I have told everyone I know about this site, and I can't wait to share more of my"familybonding" adventures in the years to come.

Glad to hear you had a memorable season and now it's "wait until next year".

My wife and I took our first trip in a rental this year and hope to join the ranks of TT owners next year.

One of the joys in the otherwise "ugh" of living in a state with one of the highest cost of living, is that our camping opportunities extend throughout the year. Just one or two days of below freezing weather in our neck-o-the-woods of which firing up the heater for a few days takes care of, so no need to winterize.

Glad you had a great season and JOF was of great help to you! We'll keep the campfire chat open here at JOF, so don't be a stranger!

Glad it all went well for you!

We are Sitting in the camper right now with the heat going...sad it is the last trip of the year!

There is a great Halloween activity this Friday night, but sadly our reservation is over tomorrow after 4 days here. Prob good anyway because it turned colder than expected and the kids don't have clothes for 32 degrees outside for a couple of hours.

We are packing up and headed about an hour away. Will be back up to 60 during the day, but still almost freezing at night. The wind has been so strong we have not been able to have a fire the last two days either. Supposed to clear by morning so I see a breakfast fire with all the wood I have left! Going to spend 2 days at the new site and then time to head home and throw some antifreeze in the lines.

Neat thing is we have enjoyed the time in the camper playing games and watching a few movies.
