Have you ever looked at your trailer, sitting forlorn all winter, neglected, ignored, feeling unloved, then the first nice day comes out, and you say, WOW! only 5 days to memorial weekend...and I still havent fixed the lights, sealed that window, screwed on that cap, (with sealant of course,) fixed the door, put in new flooring...I wonder if I can get it ready to go camping THIS weekend?

And yes...the weather in Wyoming this winter stunk...Sunday was the first decent day since last fall...

...replaced the converter, rewired the inverter, moved the propane tanks, permanently installed the 2nd battery, re-paneled the refrigerator cabinet, shampooed the carpet, washed & waxed the shell...

Yes, to answer your question. But add to that realizing that you have not reserved a spot to go camping either. So, I would leave the "things to do stuff" for later if I only had a place to go.

Pam, I feel your pain, though my to-do list is in the house so that I can free up time to go camping.



I don't know about Wyoming, but here in Northern Colorado there was NOTHING pleasant about yesterday! We went from rain rain rain, to wonderful spring days to plan old HOT 93 degree's..................... Gag, and it's suppose to be the same today. Please weather angel bring back the high 60's it's only May here.

If you want you can come camp in my yard and I will help you work on your to do list, and you can help me with mine. LOL.......... You sooooooo don't wanta see my list!

We will not be going camping this fine Memorial Day weekend either. We will be working on the Bigfoot.

Due to our recent earthquake we are thinking it a good idea to get landing gears that actually reach the ground without blocks. I have them ordered, hopefully they will come before the weekend!

A boat is a hole in the water you throw money into.......what's an RV?

Pam, Awwwww you don't have to worry about it now, if you guys are gonna be getting the same storms that we are suppose to get. Rain for the next 4 days. Thankfully it will cool it down. But it sure puts a dammmmmper on camping. Hang in there, soon enough. Robin
