I spend part of the weekend winterizing the travel trailer (draining water lines and hot water heater, putting in anti-freeze, washing and putting the cover on). It's always a sad day but we had a great camping season (29 nights), the weather in Pennsylvania and on Long Island was excellent this summer and we didn't have any major issues with the trailer or the tow vehicle (2007 Silverado). Now it's the long wait until next season :(.

Unfortunately for us working folks (2 ~ 3 more years until retirement) we're forced to close things down each fall until the following spring. We're just hoping to stay health enough to be full-timers (or close to it) once we retire.

I'm gonna try to squeeze one more trip in before I do the same.

When I camped -- it slowed down when I married the current Mrs. Ricekila --- Squeaky doesn't like to be damp ----- or cold or without electricity or flush toilets or walls or her microwave or hot tea -- LOL

This is the first year that I have not winterized my RV on Columbus Day weekend. I moved from Long Island to Georgia 2 weeks ago and there is plenty of camping season left down here.

I'll probably winterize next weekend, since we're skipping Halloween this  year.

 

If you've never been camping on Halloween, you've really missed something. We've camped at Strawberry Park and Eastern Long Island Kampground in years past. It's great to see the kids running around late into the night in a safe and secure environment. Reminds me of when I was a kid.

I just shift to a different style of camping, that involves a tent etc
