Finally its looking like Spring here in Eastern Washington, no more snow, temps hitting the 60s again, grass is starting to green, kids are wearing shorts & tanktops (ok still to cold for that)... so its time to get ready for Camping!!!

Dewinterized the rig yesterday, got the pink stuff out, checked the pump, heater, water lines, ran bleach through the hose and filled the tank and ran that through the lines. Just found one oops, thankfully it was an easy fix. I hadn't purged the water through the toilet hand sprayer and it cracked - make a note of that for next year.

Went to Lowes to get Mod supplies; Larger 22"x22" base step since the small one kept tipping, Masonite for a closet divider so we can put dirty clothes in 1/3 of the closet, small shelf in the DVD rack to wallets, and other small items that I keep misplacing.

Was going to wash and wax, but still too cool for that. But I did buy an orbital buffer from Costco to make the Wax On-Wax off process easier.

If all goes the way it is supposed to the maiden voyage of 2008 is next weekends! Yeah baby

Thanks for all the advice on the dead engine battery too.

It is still much too early here in Michigan to consider de-winterizing. As you can see from the photo take a few days ago, there is still a lot of melt to go. It did get warmer today and we lost quite a bit of snow. Soon, I hope soon the time will be right once again.

<a href=http://www.getsmileyface.com><img src=http://www.getsmileyface.com/new/angry/22.gif border=0><br><font face=arial size=1>Smiley Face</font></a> We just got another two inches of snow last night. It will be a while for us. My daughter lives in Seattle and has been bugging me all winter.

Just returned from the Tri-Cities from a soccer game with my daughters team. Beautiful day over there yesterday. Still a bit "damp" and cool over on the west side of the mountain. Where is the break in ride going to be?

I think we're going to head to the Blue Mountain foothills in Oregon. I'm waiting to hear back if the CG still has a ton of snow or not.

Sunday was a great day here, Saturday had a bit of wind and today we're getting a lot of wind.

Noticed you had/have Toy Hauler, what do you ride?

Had quad & motorcycle. Sold the toy hauler and the toys to purchase one big toy - the Suncruiser! So far, so good!
