We're retired and spend 3 to 4 months in Arizona during the winter. When we get back home (Victoria BC) we take short trips up to 4 or 5 days, go to a few horseshoe tournaments on the Island and then in December head back to Mesa.
What a life!

Hoping , at some point to do a 2-3 week camp... A road trip with a big loop! How bout you guys??
We typically do one full week somewhere like the beach or mountains (6-7 nights) and then several "weekenders" that range between 2-3 full days parked. Our general rule of thumb distance wise is 2 hours or less or 2 states or less whether it's the weekenders or the full week with a target of 30 nights a year. This year we shook it up with a 17 night road trip to Yellowstone and back at 4400 miles. It was a great milestone trip but not something we would do yearly with work schedules etc., or that the kids would tolerate yearly

Hoping to do another long one in '18 down through the FLA keys and back. Happy travels!
