Kansas camper

My wife and I just purchased a brand new 264BH jay flight swift. We both grew up in families that had campers but this is the first one we owned for ourselves. Getting it home was an adventure as there was wind at 30 mph with gust up to 50! Since we got it home the temperature has not been above freezing but a hand full of times. I guess we will be content looking at it through our living room window until the foot of snow and ice melts away.

Yes Derek it is windy here a lot but even 50 mph is windy for us. I like the calm days when it is 15mph.
Marcus we are just approximately a twenty minute drive from Kanoplis which is where most of our time will be spent since we can go just about every weekend.

On our trip out west last year we spent 5 days dry camping at Wilson lake. I believe the wind died down for a few minutes during that time to about 20mph. And that was not exaggerating. One time I opened the door and the wind/door actually pulled me off of the stairs. At times we were afraid that the TT was going to blow over. With that said, is surely a BEAUTIFUL lake. Our last day we moved from a water-front spot to one next to the brick shelter, because of major tornado warnings. We left early the next morning and there were trucks overturned on the sides of the road. A tornado went through the town we stopped in to get groceries. It was an interesting experience. Needless to say on our return trip we scooted right through Kansas. That was the real test for our solar setup, and it passed with flying colors.
