Better to have a bad day of camping than a good day at work!

We just bought our TT this year and we are on our 15th trip and I will do as many more as I can this hear. I don't think anyone uses their TT enough unless the they use it too much . I will use the winter months to catch up on life stuff. I am sitting under the awning right now with our friends watching the rain and waiting for it to quit and there is no place else I would like to be

We had 2 high school students in softball and baseball all summer long as well as football this fall and we'll still manage about 30 nights of camping this year.

Just load up all the "toys", and the prepper food....head for the hills and boondock!

But I'd have to load up three freezers full of venison, pork and beef too! Gonna need a second TV and a box trailer for all the provisions.

I don't travel light and I dang sure don't camp light.

We went "toy" shopping today...annual "toy" show. Picked out a sweet lil "toy" and'll probably go back tomorrow and take it home with us. Of course we'll have to buy "batteries" for that "toy" also.

To get back on topic;

NO we don't get to camp enough. We've spent about 18 days in our RV, having bought it in late May.

As I explained on the Flagstaff thread; our five day plans for Columbus day got changed. Death in the family, the the memorial next Saturday means we're heading for FL instead of camping. (Step sons' grandmother.) May she rest in much earned peace.

Thanksgiving plans are still on for Catherine's Landing in Hot Springs, AR.

I'm jonesin' so bad I'm ready to camp in the back yard.

FTR, "justifying" the purchase isn't a goal for us.

We wanted it.

We can afford it.

We got it.

'Nuff said.

We're leaving for our last trip of the season tomorrow! We're going for 6 days. We got to use the TT a good bit this year but we hope to use it even more next year!

We have had ours a month...I think? Only been out once. Sniff sniff. I wanna camp bad. We really didn't do anything the last trip. Local lake and maiden voyage. Kinda boring for most people. We ate and got away. We had the youngest only. We are going for birthday/Thanksgiving camping. I am pumped up!!! I told the DW we aren't waiting till then to go again. 2 months?? Ppbtttt. Whatever.
I don't feel I will get "our monies worth" but we wanted it and we got it. We have NO money, but we have our health and our families. I think the key is for the kids to have something to do while we are there.
MY goal is to fish/camp. The crappies are calling me. I kinda gave up hunting (long story), so it's gonna be my new pass time.
Sorry to ramble. We plan several long weekend trips ending this year and next year. That will be our vacations for the next years. Hopefully 40 to 50 days out and would settle for 30 to 40.
