Algonquin Park Ontario

Well after cleaning up and messing around with our new to us 1975 Trillium 1300 we were ready to go on our maiden voyage. This was our test run before we put it away for winter. Our neighbours also came and have a fiberglass trailer he gutted and rebuilt. Seems winter came early.

The Trillium is winterized and My Furnace is removed and in for servicing. The only camp ground open in Algonquin Park after Thanksgiving is Mew Lake. We winter camp in there with our Snowtrekker Tent. It has a wood stove.

WE got to Mew lake and there were tons of Hydro sites left. There were RV's of every size and some tenters. There are several Yurts for rent at Mew Lake as well. We got settled into our site.

You are dedicated campers to be out in that white stuff! Looks like your friend has an Amerigo, is that right?

It had stopped snowing by the time we set up and it was just beautiful to see so early this year. We got the BBQ out and made some burgers and prepared for dark. We were running an electric heater to warm our egg up. We had just had a tent trailer and when ever the furnace went out the trailer got cold. At least the Trillium held the head a little better.

A couple walking by stopped to chat. They checked out the trailers then invited me down to see there Little Tear Drop trailer. It was a little chilly inside and some moisture built up due to no heat. I have always had a special place in my Heart for the Little Guy trailers and we almost bought a T@b trailer. I came back from the other site and we had a great fire and talked until after 11:00 pm. That is late for both of us.

We survived the night and the temps dropped down to -10 C. My wife was a little cold even though I gave her my -20 C bag. The heater just didn't really get the trailer warm enough or as my wife says "hot". I did have a Buddy heater but didn't think we need it. Yes I am familiar with Carbon Monoxide. We also found the bed a little uncomfortable but will work that out with some kind of mattress cover.

so up early the next morning and got the coffee going. I must mention that my little coleman propane stove wouldn't work. It seems the threads are stripped on the regulator so it wouldn't take my little green cylinders. I too the propane tanks off the trailer since the furnace was removed and the furnace gas line has no shut offs. My neighbour lent us it two burner hot plate. I have so many camping stoves at home. Guess I will always bring a back up.

After a few coffees and some bacon and eggs it was time to pack up and head for home. WE were only able to spend one night due to our work schedules. So we have some bugs to work out and a full season ahead off us next year. Until then it is winter camping in the Snowtrekker tent.

I forgot to mention we picked out a name for our trailer. The Little Green Sprout. Seems fitting.

Looks like a wonderful maiden voyage! Now you have the hard part over (camping in chilly weather) so next year's camping will be easy peasy

Love that name Little Green Sprout!

The other trailer is a Ventura. Camping in my old stomping grounds, used to live in North Bay.

I like your adapt and overcome attitude Don. If you had this much fun in the snow and cold weather, just think how much you'll enjoy The Little Green Sprout next Summer! BTW, Algonquin's a real nice area. We used to fly in and around Petawawa just east of there while training with the Canadian Army. The size and beauty of that park still amazes me. Many more happy camping trips to you and yours.

Tom

The Park is a great place and we have used it in all seasons. We were canoers then to larger tent and car camping to the tent trailer. Once we get the heat worked out ( I was warm) things will be more comfortable for my wife. The dog sure does take up a lot of floor space.

I'll have to save the pic of The Liittle Green Sprout.

My neighbour has another one called a sprint. Think he is looking for another trailer to do over.

It's too bad that the costs of Provincial Parks is getting out of hand. It cost us $49.50 for one night.
