    Just went camping last weekend and wasn't planning on going again till my
    dry camping trip at end of month.
    As luck would have it...A buddy called me and and a big group
    of 6 campers
    is going tonight and one guy backed out and he offered the spot to me.
    Same campground 15 miles from home and i know everyone in the group
    so i said sure i will take and wife gave me the blessing to go alone as she
    doesn't want to again this soon.
    She said she would visit though.

    Have a great time. Sometimes the best trips are spur of the moment. I need to get another trip in so I can winterize. Had a bad rain storm on close down my last trip so couldn't do it then. Just gives me the excuse to have another trip. Just hope to find a campground with water hookups so I can do a deep clean before winter close.

    This time of year in the Midwest it's all up to the weatherman. We're heading out this weekend. Hopefully, it won't be our last trip. Our anniversary is in mid-November and DW likes to go camping to celebrate. We'll see.

    I bought antifreeze a couple weeks ago. I haven't decided if I'll use it this week yet.

    I would love to go in November... but it hasn’t happened yet. Last year I came home from my final October trip in snow... which was fine except for the road salt and brine covering every single roadway [:(!]
