we were staying at eagles peak, up on the hill in the woods. awsome place. been there 3 times this year. it is STILL in the clearing. we went up sunday afternoon to pick her up, but the clearing turned into a swamp and i could hardly get the truck around in it. so it is sitting there. the batt. was about dead at that point, so i shut it down and turned off the gas and i am praying that it is ok. it got really cold, mid 20's last night. i am actually hoping that the snow helped insulate it some. i plan on getting it back on thursday, hopefully. i have untill saturday at 6, then it is stuck till spring,(the owners run away for the winter). other problem i got is they shut down the water and sewer, and my tanks got some stuff in it. so i am actually hoping to get into a campground in lickdale that is open all year next weekend to get it "cleaned out". we will see.

Good luck getting it winterized and cleaned out. Busted pipes, regardless of which ones, are a real pain to deal with.

Yikes, I hope all is ok with it! Eagle's Peak isn't all that far from where my parents and grandmother live. My grandmother is still without power. They've been told not to expect it until at least Friday so she's been living with my parents since Saturday.

We were going to try to get out this weekend for one last trip, but I think we will just winterize instead. It's been getting way too cold overnight so it's time to just break out the pink stuff. Winter came way too fast this year!

I'll drink to that! But then , I'll drink to anything. Looks like a lot of folks will be having "Pink Stuff" parties this weekend.

Stuck in the snow

Sorry to hear about you having to abandon your TT, I have a similar trailer and tow vehicle. My wife gave me flack about buying a new winch mount for my 12,000 lb Warn. I will let her know it won't be wasted in a situation such as yours, as we live in the "Great White North."
Good Luck!

got it home today. they only got power as i was pulling in. everything seemed ok with it, so far. we are actually going to head out to the KOA in pinegrove this weekend. i want to see and make sure that all the plumbing is ok. i heard they want it to be nice this coming weekend. i think you should head out if you can. i am sure where we are heading has plenty of spots left over. i will most likely end up having the "pink party" sunday afternoon. but thats ok. lots of stress the past month with it, looking forward to a little time off, just not sure if i am looking forward to 6 months of cold, wet, darkness. now that i think about it, the camping stress isn't too bad

A bad/stressful camping trip still beats a good day at work, especially in the middle of winter! If we didn't have so much work to do at home, which has now been added too with all the tree cleanup we have to do, we would certainly be out this weekend! Instead we will be having a huge bon fire in the backyard to get rid of all of the limbs on the ground. Maybe we'll just have to sleep in the camper and pretend that we're somewhere nice

WOW GLAD YOU GOT IT OUT! WE HAD OUR PINK PARTY DURING THE STORM. THE CAMPGROUND SAID WE COULD LEAVE IT THERE. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOW CLOSED. NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE IT HOME WITH IT. OUR STREET WAS CLOSED WHEN WE CAME HOME. IMAGIN HAVING TO ABANDON 38 FT ON A SMALL TOWN ROAD. WE ARE GOING TO GO UP SUNDAY AND GET IT IF THE PATHWAYS ARE CLEAR. WE JUST GOT POWER BACK TODAY

On our news today at noon, there was a report of places in the north east without power and estimates of not being repaired until the 7th. That would be nearly 10 days without power. Glad you're more fortunate than that, but still know those without power are feeling pretty "gritty" about now. Hopefully you can get your trailer back home and put away before the next storm heads that way.

We put ours into indoor storage this year because we may want to head south in Jan/Feb. Covering it in the yard just doesn't cut it, ever try to chip a canvas cover off a frozen roof??? LOL Anyway, we put it to bed about 2 weeks ago. I've wondered if maybe we could have gotten another couple of weeks camping before the "drop dead storage date" but after hearing your trials and tribulations, I'm more inclined to think we may have made the right choice. Weather in the northern tier is just not that predictable as we find out time and time again.....
