Whoa, ain't that the truth! Time slips away fast enough without that extra push. In the meantime, enjoy and make lots of memories till then.

The best plans can be of those that happen in the spur of the moment!

Definitely not enough!

I have a full time, 45 hour per week, job and I also farm hay in the summer.

We camp one full week in the spring and 2-3 weekend trips before hay season. Then hay season lasts 3-4 weeks in July. After that we take another full week vacation. And then another 3-4 weekend trips.

I am lucky enough to live only 55 miles from the Oregon Coast and I have a friend that has a big lot there with 3 RV full hook-up spaces that we can stay at anytime we want. This year I am going to just leave it parked there for extended periods so it is easier to just jump in the truck and go.

Seasonal it is

Before this year, I never had the desire to park my camper at a seasonal site. I really enjoy traveling to different campgrounds and meeting new people. But, working full time, it was just a lot of work to leave Friday night after work, pack, hook up tt, tow and set-up tt just to do it all again on Sunday. I would camp about 7 times a year that way. This year I decided to spend the money to park my camper for the summer in hopes to get more camping in. I've already camped 4 times by Memorial Day! Now, I can leave work, drive up to the campground, turn on the power and water, and enjoy my weekend. I only wish there was a campground that I liked a bit closer than the hour and a half drive where I'm currently at. Then I might stay all summer and drive back and forth to work everyday!

I try to head out every 2nd weekend, all year long. Fortunately in Oregon we can camp all year with minimal chance of freezing. I mountain bike so it makes for great weekends at the local State Park close to Portland. I am also fortunate enough to be able to leave early on 'camping' weekends, as I put in extra time at the office when I am at home!

We have a seasonal campsite as of late August 2014. From April to late October we may miss out on camping 1 to 3 weekends. You can see my camp-stats in my sigline.

Guy across the street from our campsite shows up Memorial Day, 4th of July , Labor Day and for the Halloween bash. To me, that just dont seem worth a seasonal site. Hey different strokes for different folks. We keep an eye on his unit and site for him.

Our campsite is less then 45 min. from home. So if need be we can shoot home for whatever reasons.
Next year is here - GO CUBS- 3 more WINS to go

I will probably get a new one this year as mine is 9 years old and starting to delaminate.

We had the camper parked at the house a few weeks ago as we prepped it for a trip and a non-camping neighbor came over so we opened the slide and showed it to her. She said, "Wow, this is like a mobile luxury hotel room!"

We've been camping 3-4 times per year in a KOA cabin or once a tent.

We get "Vera" on Friday and I have already planned 5 trips through November.
