Great point, Mike!!! I've already decided to have a plan for TWO camping styles! I will scale back for short stays (so hubby will be more apt to just "hitch and go"!) And one for the longer stays. The biggest help this trip was that we didn't take the 2 shedding pugs--don't even want to think about that mess!!!

I'm a big-time "nestor"---so making a "home away from home" is part of the fun--like the outdoor kitchen, etc. Cooking in a 13 footer drives me crazy!

All that being said---it only took about 8 hours (spread over 2 days) to get things dry, put away, back to storage unit, and house back in order. It was well worth it----keeps me moving!

AND, it's rained everytime I've camped (except ONCE---2 weeks ago when we camped at 2 Rivers---15 mins. from my home!) So, it's a given!!!!

Acually the only wet gear I had to deal with was the outside rug - it needed a bath when it got home - not sure if that was due to the rain or too much wine and other beverages spilled on it on Friday and Saturday night! The awning and party tent where dry by the time I put them away - everything that was under the tent and inside the trailer stayed nice and dry.
Actually Doug I forgot to mention the two main reasons I love my Outback wagon.

#1 is because it has way more storage space in the rear than any other wagon I have looked at including the Volvo and way more by far than any small or so called mid size SUV's I have looked at as well. On an average 3 day camping trip I dont even come close to filling up the back area - usually only half full sometimes less - even with the cooler in the back.

#2 reason is the wagon is great in the snow by far a way better/safer ride than a truck in the snow (even the 4 wheel drive ones). As I live on the side of a mountain and spend a good deal of time in the winter months at various ski hills what I tow with in the summer months also has to serve me well in the winter months.

Thanks Doug I have done some pretty early in the AM drives up and down some mountains that some people would not like even if there was no snow. I have done some so early tht the plows haven't got out of bed yet :-) I know from having driven trucks in the past there is no way I would have done some of those trips if I had been driving a truck! :-)

Vickie, I recommend a vacation to the desert... Utah is beautiful. If it rains on you there, it's probably just you!

My water loving lab traveled all the time with me so I have had a bit of experence with the wet dog issue :-)The best tip I was given when I first got my trailer was to purchase a number of hooks with the suction cups on them and put them on the outside of the trailer under the awning for hanging the dogs wet towels and leash.

Just got back from camping for 3 days---NO RAIN! This time I got to see how my awning survived 30-40 mph wind gusts!!!! Not bad, actually!

I got a picture in my head of the dog being hung up to dry. Wouldn't he/she be surprised! but I doubt the suction cups would hold....
