#757805 - 03/30/09 07:25 PM Gliders and camping

We are planning a week long trip to the lake in either May or August. I can't possibly burden my mom with 12 gliders and 2 dogs. So, we were planning on taking 2 cages with us and leaving 2 cages with my mom.

So, has anyone else gone camping with gliders? We will be staying in a trailer that does have an electric space heater. Anyone have any suggestions or concerns I haven't thought of?

I took one of mine camping....We use tents, but it was summer and it was above 65 at night. We had him in his cage with 2 comforters over top to help keep any draft or cold out. He did great, it was a two week trip too. My only concern was ticks and fleas. But I checked him twice a day for ticks, and he never once had anything on him!

But I didn't take that many with me either! Hope you enjoy your trip!

I have taken mine camping in a trailer, and I really doubt you'd need a heater. Honestly, you might actually want the AC. I would also probably bring a dehumidifier since you are in the midwest and I know it can get pretty humid.

We take our gliders camping all summer. They have cages in the camper and it is only about an hour away from home so I only have to put them in fleece pouches for the transport. It works out fine.

That is the other thing, there is no AC be we have some pretty rockin' fans. Not to mention, the trailer in under a huge group of trees and gets very little, if no direct sunlight. I am more concerned if we go in May because it can still get pretty cold at night.
