6 Feet so far this month and yes we are planning on heading to Florida the middle of next month. I figure we will have 10 to 12 feet by then. Did I mention that it is snowing today?

All I can say is chain up everything and travel slowly down to the pavement. Even then still becareful...

Trust me I'm just as itchy to just hitch mine up to take it for a ride... But I got to wait till after Christmas to get my new license plates...

We've got a lot of the wetter stuff! The past few weeks feel more like living in Seattle (this is normally summer in our neck of the woods)! I would love to head to anywhere warmer/dryer too. Is that a campsite you are in, or storing the trailer in your yard? Brrrrr, that sure does look cold!

Shoot, who needs plates! We drove across 8 states with temporary tags (I think we finally got/put on the new plates after like three months - our tt definitely newer longer, LOL! And no need to worry 'bout Santa, he'll find ya. I'm wunderin' tho, which pipe he would use to drop off the presents.... Maybe Atlanta Ed can answer that in a few days

Front yard. And pretty much normal for us, but a little early. Left the snow shovel in the front yard once, snowed October 10th and never found it until spring.

I'm sitting in Florida right now and the palm tree looks alot better than that snowbank. It has been in the 70's for a week now. Santa made it even with no snow. Merry Christmas everyone.

Give me a little time.. Noob in training here... I towed a lot of things in my day but something this tall, long, and high weighing close 8000#... I want to get use to it first...

Maybe why the itch to hitch...

Mopar you'll do fine, just go slow at first and slower on the turns. You will be up to speed real soon. I was terified with my first 5th wheel heck I couldn't get it in the Driveway.
I spent 2 hrs cleaning up in front of our 5th wheel yesterday. We have a 350 ft pull to hit the road. Ten days till Texas but Whozz Counting !!! Me !!!!
