How do you make waiting for spring more bearable?

So, even though Spring is officially here, Winter is clearly sticking around for a few more weeks.

What do you do to while you wait for Spring to come around and take your camper out?

I've already made a list of everything I need to purchase and improvements I want to do this summer, including prioritizing and budgets. I've booked my appointment to have my awning repaired, it was damaged during the last weekend out in the Fall. Last weekend, I shoveled all around my camper to make sure I can pull it out and bring it to the dealer to get the awning repaired in a few weeks.

What about you all?

Going to hook the battery up this weekend and get my shoreline hooked up. I want to get a better battery box before our first trip on Memorial Day weekend. Other than that....shes ready to go. The snow has melted here, but its been darn cold.

I have a plethora of other spring time projects. No garage here so I have to wait for nice days and daylight to work on things. Plus my friends keep me busy too with their projects. This year its 4 wheelers, mowers and car repair mostly and trailer re-wires. I spent a lot of time in coveralls and sweatshirts trying to stay warm. Trying to get them all done before the good camping season starts so I don't feel guilty about going.

I'll file my taxes and get that refund instead of just making a list of things I'd like to do to it.

Around this time of the year is when we plan our year's worth of camping trips -- preplanning is a necessity for us -- and researching campsites. So that's starting to get me in the camping mood. And counting the days until April 28, when I get the trailer out of storage. Then it's three weeks of restocking and maintenance until our first trip.

It's only about 10 minutes from home to the storage yard, so occasionally I stop by and stare at the trailer longingly through the fence....

We camp for 3 weeks in Florida, 1 week in S. Georgia and another week on a Georgia lake. Then it's time to start spring camping.

There’s still someone at home in Canada?
From what we saw in Ft Meyers and Lakeland I’d assumed they were all there

2016 195 RB

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.
