How long do you stay out to camp? I hear October anyone go longer than that in a PUP?

 

Hubby is already talking winterizing![xx(][duh] I have not camped enough this season!

 

Last weekend being cold and wet, he says he is done. Not my fault he forgot his coat![dunno] This is one of the reason we are looking to trade up, because he is not having as much fun as me and the kids are!:)

 

I look at it, no matter what the weather is, I am camping, so I don't care what its doing outside....

The boo bash is our last campout. Past that my DH has had enough of camping. Plus with the kids having homework, scouts, family obligations we would not get out past that. We don't do much fall camping I would like to do more!

I have tent camped into December as far north as Straits SP in MI. DW won't go if there's frost or snow on the ground, but as long as I can go somewhere where I don't have to think about work, I'll go anytime. Heck, so long as the camper's got heat, I'll go.

The only problem we had with cold (but still above freezing) weather camping was learning that a furnace warms things up quickly, but uses a lot of propane to do it. We added the heat strip to our A/C and it handles the task a little slower, but works fine. As Garrett said, we are planning an early November outing.

Add two ceramic heaters and you can camp as long as you can get the PU to the site! Ceramic heaters heat up the PU quickly and it stays very warm all night long!

 

Oh, hope the weekend isn't windy!

November is doable, as is December depending on the weather. Just go ahead and winterize and carry portable water when camping past October. I understand some folks do it with snow, but I would not as drying out the canvas would be a PITA in the winter.

Most of the time I can't get my DW out after the end of October. This year, Walt decided to have a Men's Outing the second weekend of November. Thank You Walt.

Well we do now have a htt but when we had the pu we still camped in Nov. prior to Thanksgiving. That was when we had our old pu and never hooked up the water so never worried about winterizing. I call them the 'good ol days'. LOL
