11. A campfire makes more sense than it does in July
12. You sleep better when you smell like smoke
13. Cinnamon whiskey makes sense
14 You're likely to have some Baileys left over from Cristmas
15. You're less likely to care about the expiration date on a hot chocolate packet
16. Probably won't encounter a firewood Nazi who thinks he can stem the flow of 26 billion
Emerald ash borers
17. Fewer kids bicycles left laying around to back over.
18. You get to use your antique goose down sleeping bad while conserving propane
19. No leaves and bird droppings on your camper when you head home
20. Peace and quiet before quiet hours

We'd need a different list. Winter in AZ is 70 degrees.

Brat!

21. The campground has 5 other campers enjoying the steady cold rain.
22. Clam Chowder for dinner is a 5-Star meal.
23. Everyone comes out of their RV in the morning with hat hair or bed hair.
24. You're grateful for a site with electricity.
25. You don't hookup to water, because your trailer is winterized!

The list is kind of non-applicable here in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas right now. Tens of thousands of winter Texans, many campgrounds completely full. 82 degrees.

Letterman only wishes he was a camper.
