Wild Ride to Chilliwack n Back

Leaving tomorrow for Chilliwack. (Spell checker thinks this should be Chinchilla!) Weather looks like it could be anywhere from fair to wild n woolly. Hope everyone is OK in that area from the blast on Tuesday.
Looking at the projected temps in Lynden, think we may leave it winterized and just use a flush jug and the KOA Showers while we're up there touring.
I have a feeling people are going to be looking funny at "Seventy Degrees" for awhile till we get back in our area. 76 here today....

Having a hard time reading the screen after just coming in from the bright sunshine outside.

Yeah, the weather here's brutal. The bird bath actually had about 1/16" skim of ice on it this morning. For around here it'd be marginal if the trailer should be used without being winterized. For a local trip I wouldn't bother but down South, who knows.

Hope the pickup goes well.

Have a great trip. 75F today here at Quartzite. Will get to see "Seventy Degrees" at Scamp Camp in December at Sedona.

Greg, We are also leaving tomorrow for our 8 am orientation at ETI. Can't jam anything else in the truck, amazing how much we had in the Casita. Have a good trip, will see you in Chilliwack Monday. Dan

Thanks, all. Truck is almost packed. Can't leave till schools out so should be ready to go by then. The 10 day forecast up in the Pacific NWet looks like it has improved a bit since yesterday so maybe we'll catch a break.
Warm is essential, Ellen. We'll get to meet you soon!
Thanks Tractors, checking on the propane fill with ETI. Almost forgot...
df, We're sneaking up 93 through NV.
Ron, keep me posted on the bird bath conditions. Could be a deciding factor in de-winterizing while we're up there.
We may see you on the road Dan, if not on Monday in Chilli, we'll be next door at BWestern. Are you staying in the area on Monday? Be safe on the road.
John, we'll be thinking about your 70's at Q. Ellen is coming to Scamp Camp in her new 17 so I'm sure she'll have lots of questions for you.

Jon, when you see Ellen, could you get her Progressive straight? It hasn't worked at all apparently.

I envy you those temps. We have 10-12 lows coming this weekend, however, this is the latest warm weather we have had in many years as it just started freezing.
