Tired of cold weather camping

I LOVE camping and I enjoy camping during the winter, BUT this spring sucks. I have turtled in my Z for the last 4 1/2 to 5 months. The dinette is my bed and I can't stretch out all the way. Hauling water in every weekend. Having the outside of the camper dirty. No running water. Having to make hot water in an electric kettle. Showering by mixing hot and cold water in a Lexan bottle and pouring it over my head. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I really would like it to stay above freezing now.

Sorry I just had to get that off my chest.

We're not quite that bad here in Virginia, but I hear you, tlhdoc, and echo your sentiments.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't cold weather camping better than not camping at all?
