Since summer is so short in these parts, we try and take advantage of it as much as possible.. Typically 3 weekends a month (weather dependant) is not unheard of.. We also try and hit a 8-12 day'er in the summer too and head out on a longer run...

Oh wait..I live on the last house on my dirt road that leads to a reservoir. I border 29 acres of watershed property which only gives me one neighbor besides nature. I built a deck that runs 3/4's around my house..covered porch, gazebo and 330 sq foot covered outdoor kitchen and hottub. Two outdoor TV's one 40". HMM, do I miss being in a 23ft box crammed in between other boxes. PS..two outdoor fireplaces (but one is a cheater...it's propane)

I just don't understand the people that spend the money for a seasonal site, then hardly ever use it. We have a few neighbors that barely come once or twice a month throughout the season.
I had one more comment on seasonal sites. Several seasonal owners in my CG use the seasonal site as a place to park their huge 5th wheels. Some weekends they use their sites like everyone else does. But a few times a year they pull their 5th wheel out and go for an extended vacation. Return a week later and re-connect. This seems very smart to me for those that pay for local storage. Taking the local storage fees and apply it to a seasonal site. You sure get the opportunity to use your camper more.

So you're not into camping?

I know a few people that do that as well.

One couple I know had planned on coming out to the CG once in a while but still towing to different places but never did. I think I can count on one hand the number of times they actually camped last year.

When we were working and not racing, it was every weekend, either local or @ the Knoxville, IA race track with our 2 boys still in school.

Ehhhh, go on.......quit your bragging! A person doesn't buy a 2015 Roo just to let it sit and "Look Pretty" in their yard. Elsewise why would you have purchased it, other than to go Camping, and get away, from all your luxuries.

P.S. I was totally sold on your little spread until you mentioned the "dirt road". That was the killer.

We are still working and have one kid in high school. We try and plan at least one weekend a month locally, April through October. We also do a week long trip each year. We also do short notice camping trips as these opportunities present themselves. As time goes by and we get the youngest out of high school we will increase our camping frquency and duration!

We set up camping dates with a group of people with church -- minimum once a month from May thru October (October is a weather permitting in Michigan!). We rarely go on holiday weekends. As we often say, that weekend is for the amateurs - or certainly people that our out there to party (usually loudly) all weekend. I'm all up for a fun time, but not at 3AM when I'm getting my beauty sleep. Wish we could go more, but both of us are still working.... and so it goes.

I'm like you, I'm not one to wish my life away, but in the meantime, we go every chance we get! It's hard to wait I will admit!
