Just mocking me

My Jayco just sets there on my empty lot next door winterized. I drive by it a couple times a day, everyone asks me if it's for sale & I can see it from several windows in our house. This crazy winter has been warm & only a couple light snows. Today will be near 50, lot's of sunshine and predictions of 50's & 60's all next week. Man all I want to do is load it and go somewhere, but everybody says I'm crazy! I guess I'll just fire up the Traeger pellet grill & bribe the family with great food. At least I'll be outside!

We are experiencing a mild winter this year in New England. Last year at this time we had over 40 inches of snow that NEVER melted until April. (see photon in signature UGH! ). Today I went out and started the engine and generator and hung out for awhile. Cannot wait to hit the road either.

yeah, the 55 degree weather here today had my mind racing. i COULD be camping. I SHOULD be camping. At least we got to camp late into the season this past year.

Think it will continue and have an early start to camping season? Mid March? (I'm in Indiana)

I know the feeling. I want to uncover ours and get started on the little maintenance projects. But....it's Michigan and will change in a couple of days so until March I'll leave her alone.

I'm enjoying two weeks in the mountains of Southern California. It gets cold at night, but the days are nice

Seann, that is living, not camping. Camping is occasional use.
