Time to re-winterize

Time to re-winterize

coldkycamp (1)It got down to 21 degrees as we spent the night in Kentucky on the way back to Michigan from a brief January visit to Florida and some southern states.

Guess it’s time to find some pink stuff and re-winterize. Sigh.

That warmer weather down south sure was nice.

Tai loved being out in the cold night air with the gusto that only a double coated Norwegian Elkhound can exhibit. I had trouble getting him to come inside for the night.

We slept comfortably in our Roadtrek eTrek, with the amazingly efficient and quiet  Webasto diesel heater keeping the chill away. Since I have most of the water drained, I used the forced air setting instead of hot eater heat.

We overnighted in the Kentucky Horse Park, where we stayed on the way down.

We drove a total of 568 miles yesterday. I did 290 of them and I am so excited to report than Jen drove 278 miles.

She loves driving the eTrek… she even drove through the mountains along the Northern Tennessee, southern Kentucky border… at night.

Im thinking of stopping at the big Arbogast RV center north of Dayton to get my antifreeze.

My next trip will be in a couple of weeks to even colder weather – the Michigan UP200 dogsled race in Marquette, MI. So last night was a good shakedown test of how warm we will be.
