6 months already? Time to move the trailer

We had to move the trailer out of Mount Kidd RV Park before the end of April, so we watched the weather forecast closely last weekend, and decided to move it on Monday evening, April 27th. We wanted a calm evening with little wind. Rain isn't really a problem here unless it's late May through June, but wind could cause me some problems with pulling a 34' trailer, especially when I'm not very experienced doing it.  It was 18th October last year when we moved to Mount Kidd.

It took a little longer than expected to get it all hooked up, that's the problem when it's been 6 months since you last did something, so it was just after 9pm before we rolled out of the campsite. This meant driving back to Airdrie in the dark, which made it a little more tricky, but actually there weren't any worrying moments, and it only took 15 or 20 minutes longer to drive than it would normally have done.

We've parked it up in the same RV storage place where it was after we bought it, close to Airdrie. It's due to be "de-winterised" and have a couple of bits of maintenance work done on it between now and the middle of May, when we'll be going to Calaway Park for three nights, for the opening weekend of the amusement park there.

Hopefully we'll take it back to Mount Kidd for next winter, if they choose not to carry out renovations to the camp centre there, which would put the showers and washrooms out of use. Otherwise we'll need a Plan B for all those skiing weekends we're planning.
