Congratulations on your new Pod.  I wish the camping season had begun here, but alas, most of the campgrounds in the Sierra Nevada mountains are still buried in several feet of snow.

Congratulations and welcome! We have enjoyed our 2016 RP179 and I have done a number of modifications. I'm working on one now. The 179 is a great design with the rear kitchen. I hope you have many fun adventures and make many great memories doing so.

and... the higher peaks just got another 2' of snow in the last couple of days. In Yosemite, they had just opened the Glacier Point Road, only to close it again because of the snow. Some of the high Sierra camps will not open at all this year.

An example of the snow on the way:  Kirkwood CA is expecting snow for the next week, with between 25" and 44" accumulating.  This is in addition to the 2' mentioned by Glue Guy for the higher elevations.  The rivers will be running cold all summer.

We're dealing with flooding.  Many State Recreation Areas are near rivers and have been flooded and are closed.  Hopefully they will open soon but we're told to expect a bumper crop of mosquitoes.

I heard mosquitos in the great plains have navigation lights so they don't collide with aircraft.
