In the Southwest, our high season just started. Good luck finding openings at camp sites down here.

Sad to see,here in Sunny SoCal we are just gearing up for our Fall and Winter camping season,never had to winterize here.

That being said I have made many,many,many trips thru Windsor as a OTR truck driver on my way to Toronto. It is a delightful city,I was taken on a 2 hour tour once by a Taxi driver while broke down there and having to go to get money.

He described it as the Florida of Canada,being the southern most Canadian city. I know it can get really cold there,once while fueling to come back home the attendent told me that with the wind chill it was -60 degrees,and I believed him,I had a gallon of oil that that I wanted to put in the truck but it would not pour after being taken from inside the warm Truck stop outside to the truck.

Oh and as for that picture here is last week.

I have winterized but will be using my TT for dry camping during deer hunting season the last week of November. I set the heat at the lowest setting (52 degrees) and stay warm in my sleeping bag. I will have 3 of my thirty something daughters with me. Our biggest problem is condensation on the walls and windows, even with a window cracked open. No electricity other than my batteries which I keep charged using solar, unless it is cloudy then I break out the generator.

I was hoping to avoid winterizing until after my FL trip in a couple of weeks. No joy. Going down to 24 one night next week. Blew all the lines, drained the tank and pink popped the drains. My water pump won't pull antifreeze from a bottle, so I found a pump that hopefully will let me pump through the city water inlet. It will be easier than blowing the lines.

We’re winterized, too. Will be unwinterizing in February for a jaunt to Florida and then doing it all over again.

We live in New Mexico and are able to camp year around.

A bit nicer than our days in northern Michigan!

I've got a week reserved at Hilton Head Harbor at the end of the month. Going to bring my Weber and smoke a turkey.

You just need more toys! Put the camper and boat away and got the snowmobiles tuned up and ready to go. I can feel a couple ski trips and ice fishing in the future as well!
