A nice evening at home, Facetiming Mom, and sharing a split of Asti constituted our New Year’s Eve.

Friends in Tucson were lucky enough to go camping last night in Patagonia (AZ) but then again their overnight temps were in the 50s, ours were in the single digits. Not camping weather here in PA, even if the parks were open.  With the new year, we look forward to the camping season to come.

We wish everyone a blessed 2018!




Truly, the reason for the season – Merry Christmas!




Well, the chocks are in the wheels & our Sunline is parked in its portico for another winter as we bid a reluctant adieu to the 2017 camping season.  We were SO hoping to have another opportunity to camp before the parks closed this past weekend but… no dice!  Instead, we found ourselves doing the last of the winterizing this weekend & wondering where the time went.

We had plans to camp at the end of October with Sunline friends but that fell through due to two-day downpour-windstorm.  Then, we planned to camp on Thanksgiving but Mom asked if we would come to her house, along with my brother, sister-in-law, & nephew, for a family Thanksgiving.  When your almost 86-year-old Mom asks that the family get-together, the answer is always “Yes!”

Still, some of our local PA state park campgrounds stay open until mid-December when deer hunting season ends, so we thought we could camp after Turkey Day but no such luck!  Busy-ness set in with a vengeance &, before we knew it, we were running the pink stuff through the water system, removing all the “freeze-ables” from the cabinets & cleaning the interior of the 2363.


Our season started with two trailers, the super Sunline & the jaunty Jayco.  While we didn’t get in as much local camping as we like, we did have our 3-week Four Corner-Southwest tour with the Jayco which, at the risk of sounding repetitious, we’d do again in a minute, it was that good!  The Jayco did its job & was sold, the Sunline remains, & for now, our season ends – & blog entries become more sporadic, if that’s possible 🙂  – until the Spring!
