You only have cabin fever if you stay in the cabin.

On the snow 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

sourdough, Rare for me to do but I watched the complete (online) video presentation from Dr. Gundy's Vital Reds. Honestly, it was an impressive theory but I thought it was like any other "snake oil" product. Your testimonials sounds honest and may give me incentive to take a second look. And for the record I did not find your post to be a product endorsement.

FlyingAroundRV, We recently traveled from Maine to Ohio. Stayed in a very nice state campground near Geneva OH. On Lake Erie with full hook ups,bike trails and if the weather is right (like is was for us), a beautiful beach. Also on another trip we took with my TT we went to the UP (Upper Peninsula) in MI. Stayed at the Little River Casino Campground in Manistee . The park had large sites, full hook ups and access to some amenities including a very large indoor hot tub with a cascading waterfall. I guess other campers were not aware of the access, but no on was ever in the tub when we went to use it. And of course the casino has the tables, buffet and entertainment available as well.

flybouy, A cigar in the TV cab. Man I'm jealous. My cigars are only allowed in bordering counties.

Canonman, Love the quip. So true. The only thing I have found that I do not need to be quick with is my golf swing. A work in progress.

Oh yeah, the original thread. Don't have much cabin fever where I live,but on the really cold days I tinker around in the garage and beat on something in the vise to get frustration out or kick around in the studio on the guitars and keyboard.

I've got my own "personal sandbox" out back. During the summer, when I need to "de-stress" I take the tractor to my sandbox and move a mound of sand from one side to the other.... In the winter, snow covers the sand, and in these parts, often up to 5 or 6 feet deep.....

So, during the winter, when I can't get the pole barn door open (frozen to the ground) I take the tractor to my "sandbox" and push the snow off my sand, use the front bucket to make a big pile, then push the snow back and try to smooth things out so it looks "like I wasn't there"... I usually wind up "relocating snow" from the driveway to the sandbox to keep the supply of new stuff available......

Oh, and I plan to add a new activity this winter, taking the cover off the Slingshot, making sure there's no dust accumulating on the seats, replacing the Fresh Cab and reinstalling the cover......

Usually, by then, I'm cold enough to head inside, warm up and watch the weather report to see if I'll have more "new snow" to add to the sandbox tomorrow......

Such an exciting "winter life"

Taking time to work on my model railroad stuff again. It's amazing how addicting camping has been though. Looking forward to spring.

Dream about a new truck and trailer, then realize - NOPE not enough funds. Then start planning what camping trips we are taking next year. Not a snow girl living in the "Winter Wonderland of Michigan" with snow for the third time in the past week. If it actually stayed for more than a day or two we would have had over 6 inches already. So not ready for this - to early for my Cabin Fever to start.

I bought an old tire shop about five years ago and re-did the front half, about 30'x30'. I keep the office and two small rooms heated. I go to the shop usually every week day when I'm not working for a big farm. Between cleaning up, reloading ammunition, researching on the 'net, visiting with a couple of old friends, I usually can pee away the day.

I haven't been "bored" for a total of an hour in my life (71), and if it doesn't appear that I'm doing much physically, I'm usually just happy with my thoughts! When we go touring with the camper, I usually spend my evenings researching guns and diesel locomotives on the 'net. I listen to a chapter or two from an audio book on my phone pretty much every night, no matter where I am. I also like to read books. Never a dull moment around with my DW.

Now that it's legal up here, I'm experimenting with different strains of cannabis. Talk about a time waster. It does motivate me to do something, what I don't know

I like to plan the next camping trip or the next upgrade or maintenance Im go to do to my trailer. And there is always something to do at the house of course. In Southern California the winter is pretty mild. If I have time to sit around, I like to watch tv. YouTube has been my recent choice.
