I'm not on the road in the Apache right now -
we're stationary at the Sleeping Bear RV
campground in Lander.
We've been in snow before - like the time
we were snowed in at Yellowstone National
Park in June 2001.
But either I'm getting old(er) and can't stand
the cold or it is freaking cold this winter. I've
got 2 ceramic space heaters going almost
continuously except when the sun streams
through the window during the day.
The carpeted area is fine - it actually has
2 layers of carpeting. But I haven't insulated
anything else. I had some soy milk sitting
by the door and it froze solid so I'm putting
a piece of pressboard in front of the door
at night. The linoleum kitchen floor gets so
cold that when the chihuahuas pee on the
paper, anything that hits the floor by
accident freezes in place.
The windows are icy cold so I've hung a
blanket across one of them for additional
insulation. Here's a view from the window
one morning earlier this week.
But other than sleeping with my socks on,
we're actually pretty comfortable in the old
Apache. And we love the wildlife! On my way
back from brushing my teeth in the RV
bathroom, I noticed something moving
across the campground. Grabbed my
I love Wyoming. I love RVing. Even in the
winter, it is incredibly beautiful.
