Back up plan
My lovely wife and I have pretty firm plans for this winter. We decided on towing the sailboat behind the Chevy Blazer and do a mixture of sailing and tent camping.
Someone asked us what we’d do if there was a problem with the Blazer at the last minute. We both said we’d just load camping gear in her Nissan Versa and head south anyway. We’ve car camped with the little car before without problems. I bet we could even fit the Sea Eagle inflatable kayak in the car and do some paddling.
You’ve got to be flexible.
The first year we spent the winter south, almost 20 years ago, we did it in a Dodge Neon. Back then we carried an Old Town Discovery canoe on the roof that was bigger than the car. We traveled all over the south without any problems. Heck, we even had a dog with us back then. The Neons have a reputation for being crap cars, but ours never gave us any problems.
A few years ago we ran into a couple who didn’t even have a car. They flew to Florida and had an Uber take them to the campground. Their camping gear was minimal, but it was enough.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
