We added this picture to this thread because we do store our trailer in the parking lot. What is different is that white stuff. Here in Victoria on Vancouver Island that is quite an event. I wanted to record it for all time.

When I look out at the Tril I want to go throw a blanket over the little thing to keep it warm.
Ken, Victoria didn't look like that when I was there in August... what happened?

Season, what's a season? We just switch from mountain camping to desert camping.

My wife and I have been visiting {sans trailer} in Edmonton for the last month. We are ready to fly back to Ontario tomorrow. Away from the snow and - 27 temperatures. Back to plus 10, green grass and some leaves still on the trees.

View out my office window this morning.

(The oil-type heater and dehumidifier are running in the trailer.)

My Burro is on the driveway, with pink stuff (not too much) in the tank and in the one short drain line.
It is hoping that we will have one of those bizzarre mild winters with 70 degree weekends so it can go out.
It nags me every morning when I go out to the car, "Take me somewhere"

My 16 ft. Scamp is sitting in a parking spot in my new (to me) driveway here at our new home. It is foggy and a little rainy, 40 degrees at the eastern beginning of the Berkshire Mountains. We are at about 1100 feet, which does not qualify as an ant hill west of the Mississippi. But here it brings cold and snow before the valleys and cities.

I "winterized" it before moving here a couple of weeks ago. But, we are still using it. Bought a house with four bedrooms (two that can be shut off when not in use) so we can accomodate everyone when they come home for summers and holidays, now that they are adults and have children in some cases. So, for the first holiday here, Thanksgiving, who didn't get a bedroom? That's right, my wife and I.

Actually, we volunteered to sleep out in the camper. Temperature went down into the twenties the two nights we were out there. But, using a small, and I mean small, ceramic style electric heater, we were warmer than if we had stayed in the house. We enjoy cooler sleeping. I had the heater down to its minimum and we were very fine.

I even had a window open which let the sound of the brook that dominates the property sail us away.

I think I may just leave the camper where it is, cover the tires and do what the manufacturer suggests about jacking. Could be someone will be out there at Christmas. I should have bought a hotel.

Boy, it's sure easy to spot who lives in sunny California and who lives where the snow is deep ! lol ! As I write this, snow is actually falling here in the mountains of eastern Arizona. Soon it will be too deep to safely navigate the local roads, let alone try to go somewhere with the trailer. SIGH ! I can hardly wait intil the start of Spring. Meanwhile, our little get-away house sits comfortably in the garage, waiting patiently. Hey, I was wondering if you folks who live in S. Calif would like to plan a trip across the northern States this winter? Looks like Ben Idle would be prepared for such a jaunt, he has tank treads on his rig !
