Camping withdrawl

So in one aspect I'm glad I bought in fall. The other is, I hate staring at my camper. All the time wishing it was summer.
Good news! I'm completely addicted to reading rv mod forums. Lol
And my wife thinks I've lost my mind.

And the old camper conversion to ice shack is ready for ice fishing. Just have to wait for thicker ice. 18 inch min for my truck and shack to hit lake.

How's everyone else doing with the withdrawl issues. Lol

I get camping withdrawal twice a year! Once in the fall and again in the spring. Here’s my winter camping setup

That white tent looks like it's suspended in mid air.

It does, doesn’t it. Aluminum body and if you look close you’ll see the RV propane furnace. We’ve gone 5 nights in it. A buddy and I built two of these campers.

Kind of reminds me of the wife and i first camper. It was a sears "tent on wheels" and it had a add a room. My folks had a Richline that was the same design many years before that but our sears had a door you could open. Theirs you un-zipped the canvas then stepped over the box to get in it.

I just realized im old!

I’ll take some pics once the ice is thick enough to get my 22 ft shack out. Lake turns into largest winter camping you’ll ever see.
Last year they figure close to 400 converted campers were out on lake. My camper is brutal heavy.. I run 3 webasto bunk heaters off 10 type 31 truck batteries. I can go about 70 hrs off batteries before I need to fire the generator.. I never let it go that far. About 24 hrs and usually charge after that.
Only camped over night once. Fish don’t bite after dark.

I totally missed the aluminum box on the underside. Had to blow the picture up to see it. Then I could pick out the furnace also.

Quite a rig.

Thanks! This was years ago before my son could drive a sled. Camper is the rear one.

Well the temps have been all over the place up here.
Yesterday it was 37 deg and today its -8.
I was in the camper to check everything out and sun had warmed up the interior to almost 40 deg.
Weather man says 2 days like this and back up to 30's again.
Once I can be warm and working on it. The big boon docking setup is going to be installed.

You guys have too much fun with all your outdoor extreme condition toys.

Today I was working outside in shorts and a teeshirt, considered going for a ride on my M/C too cool down, but dismissed the idea as it was too hot already.... Mid 80's and it's only February.

Stay safe guys whatever you're chosen pastimes are........

Okay so ice fishing is now done. (Is the last weekend I can go before season closes) Getting excited that snow was almost gone and mother nature goes dumps approx 4 inches of fresh white fluffy crap on us. We were getting day time highs here close to 10 deg above freezing.
Not to mention this Covid crap could have waited for another month and I would have had a perfect excuse for boondocking somewhere....lol

Might be a very long camping withdrawal with the current situation with COVID-19. Just found out they’ve closed access to the Outer Banks of N.C. which is our favorite place to go twice a year. We have a three week reservation trip planned starting on April 9th. But now it’s probably not going to happen. Stay safe everyone. This looks to be a bad one.

That’s got to suck big time! I’m glad we got our Yellowstone trip in last year. There will be no cross border trips anytime soon. Hopefully they won’t close provincial borders come summer. We have 2 weeks planned at our favourite campground.

If it was 2 months further in the calendar, I would be sitting at the boondocking spot watching the planet unravel. But with all the cold and snow. I just get to stop with it all....

It was announced at work today that. If anyone get confirmed covid positive. The whole branch would be closed for 14 days. We deliver fuel to close to 50% of the gas stations around here.
Just getting too nuts!....

Got out today and pulled wheels and hubs off. Cleaned, checked brakes. Greased bearings. Adjusted brakes. So ready to travel sometime, somewhere in the future.

state parks in Michigan are stating they will be open, but the bath houses will not be open. the lack of a bath house will not stop us! after 7 years of being seasonal and the last two years without a camper the wait to get out in our new rig is almost unbearable!!!!
