Happy Holidays! - Yes, I Know It's A Bit Early!

Better Weather!
    We're all gearing up here for a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and even a Joyous Kwanzaa. I just wanted to let everyone know my wishes extend to my entire extended RV family. Writing these articles each week, has been one of the truly enjoyable things I get to do. Many of you have expressed thanks for the information contained in them. For that, I thank you heartily. Being in the Northeastern US and being an avid RV'er can be pretty tough around the holidays. You get to see your RV under cover and snow on the ground. Quite a bummer. I get to plan for next season...that's OK. But the desire to travel, to be on the road is very strong.

OK, enough whining! In the coming year...I'm really going to make a concerted effort to get out and meet more RV'ers.

I'll bet there are quite a few of us here in the Northeast. All of us wishing we could be on the road again...sooner. Hmmm....maybe, after I find some of these folks, we could all get together over the winter and plan for the next season. Sharing ideas, having fun and generally goofing around isn't out of the question!
Once in a while I see some posts on RV forums from folks who are in the Northeast. Sometimes I respond either publicly or privately...usually, no response. Maybe this article will spur some of them to "come out of the woodwork!"

In other news, I've found all the fans I need to update both the bathroom 6" circular one and the one in the range hood. Stay tuned, if I can find an easy way to heat the inside of my covered RV, I will at least make an attempt to get some projects done! I know...use an electric heater....OK I'll see if my Electric Fireplace will heat up the whole RV...it will be a great experiment. With the cover on and all the windows blocked with my mylar/bubble covers...it's pretty dark and cozy in there. Add the fireplace and it could be a romantic place. Hmmmm any ideas who I should share that with?

Merry Christmas! Hope Santa and the Elves bring you lots of great RV stuff!

Be Seeing You, Down The Road...

  1. While we're not in your part of the country, we too spend much of the winter wishing we could go. We live in the Rocky Mountains at about 8600'. Winter starts anytime from mid September to late October and lasts essentially until mid May. We hesitate to store our rig "across the hill" in the Denver area because we'd have to plan so completely for any trip - lugging everything in one 2-3 hour trip to the rig. No thanks. Retirement looms - next winter we might get in a trip before the snowmobiling gets started? Today, we've warmed up to a balmy 23, some days it doesn't even get UP to zero ... and we're not ready to drive the rig on snowy roads.

    1. Deborah,
      A "balmy" 23 degrees! Makes me feel better that it's at scorching 35 degrees here today! We are expecting a bit of snowfall...

      Here's to wishing for Spring!
