You are so right about no marina fees when sitting idle!
Yeah, totally. And West Marine... (stuck my head in yesterday to look at battery cut off switches and AGM batteries; boy howdy is that stuff expensive. No way RV stores can be worse.)
Don't get me wrong, I really would love to do more sailing. But the fact is, even with a fairly fast sailboat, even leaving Friday night and returning Sunday night for a weekend getaway, the number of options I had from my marina in Seattle was pretty small and I have done all of them over and over and they tend to be pretty crowded. Anything else required at least a week and preferably 2 weeks. So I could maybe pull that off once or twice a year. [sad face]
With the TT, that same Friday night-Sunday night adventure can take me anywhere within a couple of hundred miles going 50-60 mph on a highway. And within that range--just looking at campgrounds and parks (not even talking about boondocking yet)--there are dozens and dozens of places, further multiplied by the mobility of the TV while the camper is parked at the site. And with those same 2 weeks or so we can hit Yosemite or Yellowstone or BC or...
Really getting excited about this.
