TT Winter Blues

I've been in Arizona for the holidays. Without my trailer. It is a little easier to handle not camping in Canada during these winter months. And since I have been here, I've been seeing trailers being towed, sunny RV dealers and warm weather ( except for the Grand Canyon -10 c ). Makes me wish I had my Trailer here. I went for a run this morning, wearing running shorts and light t-shirt. One lady walking her dog wearing a tougue, winter jacket and mits, asked me if I was from Alaska since I must be crazy running in such cold weather. To me it was like mid spring. I wish I could be camping, I'm not looking forward to the wet weather back home. Though I am looking forward to Snowboarding when I get back. I have the TT winter blues.

The great thing about AZ is you don't have to wait to get back "home" to go snowboarding; you can either head up to Snowbowl in Flagstaff or head over to Sunrise Ski Resort in the White Mtn's to get your fix. Then, when the fun is done on the hill, you can head back to the valley and lay around the pool the following day.:hihi:

We have been in Phoenix 11 years (relocated from Olympia, WA). The last few mornings there was ice on the car windshield and we're wearing our winter coats. Did you know that everyday it rains in Phoenix, the sun shines in Olympia?
