In retrospect, we probably began our RVing life at the worst possible time of year - late summer. Our first "mission" with the Aluminum Falcon to Lake Greenwood State Park, was a glorious time. We had never towed a travel trailer to a campground, never set up a campsite, never had to deal with things like water hookups and propane-powered refrigerators. However, the weather was fantastic - warm and dry, with pleasant breezes coming off Lake Greenwood, and lots of natural scents and sights to enjoy as we lounged and relaxed.
That didn't last, though. Fall/Winter 2018/19 in the American South was INCREDIBLY cold and rainy, and our next four camping trips were plagued with drenching rains, blistering cold, or some combination of both! We have tried to find the proverbial "silver lining" in all this by convincing ourselves that we now know lots of things about how to camp in BAD weather, and now that springtime approaches, we'll have even more fun going forward learning about camping in GOOD weather!!
Another benefit is that you dear folks get to learn from our experience! In this video on our YouTube channel, we tell you about five cold-and-wet lessons we've lived through and learned about dealing with dreary camping weather:
