Coming Soon! Camping Season!

Our camping season will start when I finish some modifications - and when I get the storage basement walls re-attached, the wiring sticking out of various drilled holes and Dremel cuts connected, and the coroplast once again secured on the bottom. Oh yes, have to reconnect the shore power to the ATS replacement and power everything up. At that time, I'm under some severe pressure not to start anything else by the DW so we can get out and enjoy!

But there's always just that one more thing . . .

It gets cold here quick. Not worth freezing a pipe or water heater. Plus most campgrounds are not open and have water off outside of these dates.

Usually May 24 (Victoria Day Long Weekend in Canada) is about the earliest we can get out; more often than not, it runs early June until the end of September or so... sometimes a bit into October but after that the Cougar goes to sleep for the winter.

Camping Season

Mine starts April 28th in a state park in Wisconsin, As im typing the weather man is saying rain, rain snow mix , snow north of Milwaukee, I think i will turn my back to the north and look south, I am so ready for weather above 60.
I think maybe today before the rain gets here i will take the RV inspection sheet from this site, And and go check a few things off the list, Alittle here and a little there.

The weatherman is calling for up to 7" tonight/tomorrow, possibly ice mixed with snow, maybe 1/4" in places. Predicting some power outages, winds up to 45MPH. I'd say winter finally will hit us. We usually start camping around Memorial day, often get the trailer ready a couple of weeks before, but that's always a seasonal judgement as it often freezes into early/mid June. We've chipped ice off the boat ramps as many Memorial Day "bass openers" as not. Always go to one specific remote lake in the UP for opening weekend. Depending on whether or not others might be there, definitley don't want to get "stranded on an icy boat ramp, sliding backwards..... LOL

Hopefully, we will get the trailer out of storage the end of April or early in May and be ready to hit the roads and campgrounds when it stays above freezing at night...

Well for me we start dry camping at motorcycle races the 1st week of march. Hey wait that next week I better get my sh%t together. The part I hate is checking the weather every night after the 1st race wondering if I should winterize it again. This usually goes on till April.
