Yep we pushed our rain East to you so we had a sunny weekend...
One question
Why bother unhooking at 2:30 am? in the rain.... just go to bed and set up camp in the morning, hopefully in the dry...I have done that numerous times.

We will send the rain back your way this weekend..:lightning:

We unhooked, because our trailer hitch needs some further adjustment and our trailer is not sitting level.. so we would have been sleeping on a slant with all the blood rushing to our heads.
Believe me, if the slope had been the other way.. we would have left it.

-we do not like to travel in the rain.
-we never want to deal with hail.
-we do not want to forget an important step..

Yes... we certainly do not ever want to hitch up our trailer at 9:30 at night, during a major rain and hail storm, till we were completely drenched (since we are hitching a NEW TRAILER with a NEW HITCH and it took TWICE AS LONG... ) ..and drive three hours in the pitch dark over unknown roads, only to pull into our campground at 12:30 a.m. and realize that D.H. forgot to drain the water tank he had filled and tested before we left.. (so we had just hauled 700 pounds of water with antifreeze and javex in it,) which took 40 minutes to drain, and then 30 minutes to refill, .. standing in the pouring rain holding the hose.. and then try and QUIETLY find our sight and QUIETLY unhitch for the first time.. (did I mention that it's still POURING RAIN and we are still soaked).. only to fall into an exhausted stupor at around 2:30 a.m..... BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE DID!

How could this happen?
A relative showed up at our home just as were were heading out the door at 4:30 in the afternoon and proceeded to have an emotional episode.. that lasted for four and a half hours.. until we felt like she was for sure O.K. and we were good to go... call us kind, :lizard: call us stupid.. but we felt like we should listen..sigh.. and so there we were heading out to the driveway to finally leave.. and the skis opened up and ...AAAHHH!!:lightning:
So there we were at 2:30 a.m. .. FINALLY GETTING TO BED...

But I have to say... it was soo worth it, and we love our trailer, and in the end we had a fabulous weekend... and even watched the Lucy and Dezi movie The Long, Long, Trailer.. so that we could laugh at someone who seemed to be having worse troubles than we were.

Here are a couple of photos of our first outing..

The photos are:
#1.. Chilling outside on the morning after the Episode.
#2. Walking the Dogs at the harbour
#3 D.H. having his first cup of "camp coffee".. he loves perked coffee
#4 Felix are dog finds out he is not allowed on the camper sofas, and he has been given a green pillow on the floor instead.
What???? Green pillows on the floor? Felix, the sofas were made for you!!
What a great story and it will be an adventure you will always remember.
Hopefully the other trips will be dry, sunny, and no drama!!

What kind of temperatures are you having? I was in Texas two summers ago.. it was 120 degrees... kinda traumatized me actually
We get hot summers here in canada.. but not that hot.

It's been in the high 80s to around 90 for the past several days. From my memory, this isn't bad for May. Seems like we've had a decent stretch of weather since March.

on a hot day in august, just quoting, "it's not the heat, it's the humidity..." will probably get you a Texas style beating from your friends...

it gets hot, but thanks to AC units, it's livable... we had a few days last summer on the boat, that were just crazy... 103, high humidity, not a lick of wind... the fishing was good, but all the water was gone by noon... everyone was too scared to even have one beer! (and that is rare!)

we've had a few hot days already, mid to upper 90s... not too bad, all things considered.
