Fall is in full force, and winter is just around the corner… but that doesn’t mean camping season is over! It just means more layers, cold, crisp hikes or other outdoor activities, hot cocoa by the fire, and lots of warm blankets to snuggle under.
Around Medford, where we live, camping can be enjoyed year-round. With proper planning and equipment, some excellent adventures await. And if you are camping in an RV, your experience can be comfortable no matter the weather.
This year has offered up some interesting weather, and the months of October and most of November were unseasonably mild. It just so happened that a few events fell into place that
presented us with the perfect time to get away: Darby’s birthday, Veteran’s Day on a Monday, and a stellar weather forecast for the coast! So we hooked up a trailer (Diego), packed a few things up (dog included!), found a site for the night, and headed for Brookings.
What a weekend! Temps in the seventies...a sweet site at an oceanside RV park with full hook-ups… overall a lovely, mid-autumn trip. It left us totally pumped for more trips! But the weather has taken a turn, temperatures have dropped, rains have arrived, and the wind has picked up. Will that stop us? No way! As RVers, we don’t have to worry about those things! Just hook up, set up, and light that fire. All the comforts come with us in that little house on wheels, and we can plant ourselves in any location we choose. It’s the perfect balance of experiencing nature and all she has to offer, and being warm, cozy, comfortable - and dry!
