That is a concern of mine. The school bus seems like it's a permanent fixture in the storage yard; for the few years I've been going there, I don't think it's moved one inch. But the containers are different; the lady who runs the place says her son-in-law has been dropping them off and she doesn't really have the room for them. But since where the photo was taken is in one corner of the yard, maybe it's going to be there long term.

If it is, and my trailer is tucked in between the container and the bus, it'll be more sheltered from the Canadian Prairie Winter that we're about to face. So I have more than one reason why I hope the container doesn't move!

Actually was very happy with my location for the winter. Managed to actually get a pull through beside a newer HTT on one side and the island for the hydro pole on the other. Only need to worry about the one side and the back now.

Helped another owner as I was putting her to bed. He arrived in a panic because we had slight frost the night before, and he hadn't winterized yet. Put his mind to rest as the temp needs to get below freezing for a while before things start freezing up in the TT. New to TT's, he also didn't really know how to winterize. Helped him empty his HW tank, and open up the low point drains. He had an experienced buddy coming in later that afternoon to help with running the AF.

I am putting ours to bed, just waiting for the windstorm on Sat to pass before I winterize and throw my new ADCO cover on it before I park it beside my house.

We have 2 maybe 3 more weekends planned. Then I will winterize and park her alongside my house off the driveway. When we had our house built, we had a 24 foot cruiser (boat) and had the driveway built wide enough so the boat would not take normal use drive space. Now, we park the trailer there and in the winter, just push it back alongside the house.
