We have our maiden voyage the second weekend of March to Dreher Island State Park then to Anchor Down RV Resort in TN the second weekend of April. After that we have our annual trip to James Island County Park for the week of the 4th but I'm sure that we'll be camping some more in between that time Can't wait!

Trying to book up a short trip (4 days max) for next month, to keep us going until our long road-trip in the summer.
Unfortunately we'll probably only manage the one trip between now and June since I need to save up my time-off for our 8-week summer trip (tho' we've already camped some this year, over new-years and another short-break over MLK weekend)

Keep it inland if you want it. If I want to see snow I'll turn on the Weather Channel. No need at the coast ~~ hard enough to get the boat out.

You are so right! Have serious camping fever!! Here in Cincinnati winter is slowly coming to an end. We already booked our first weekend for March 18 at a local county campground that is very nice with full hookups. Can't wait to spend our first 2 nights camping in our brand new TT.

I wanted to see it snow this year but we didn't get any, I can hope for maybe a March snowstorm. I like snow cream

I think everyone is buying RV's because it is getting harder and harder to schedule weekend trips as the campgrounds are always full. When you have a 40' RV and a 22' TV, you end up with very limited options for campsites. With the older TT and TV we sold two years ago, it wasn't that big of a deal!

It just made me sick to see that thing sitting in the side driveway... week after week, month after month, and not being able to use it. Well after two years of not camping very much since we got that 5ver and new truck, the DW and I had to do something about it.

We just closed on 11 acres of land way out in the boonies... about a hour from our home. It has a very long private drive about 1000' on a right-of-way between two other plats and the property already has power. Prior owner was going to build a house there but the military changed his life plans. The best part is there is nothing around for at least a mile in any direction other than cattle, deer, and a Sasquatch or two.

I'll add the septic and well this summer but at least now we have a plan. Eventually when I retire it will be place to downsize when we sell our current home but until then... it is a place to camp!!!!!!!

It is difficult at times. My biggest challenge is snowbirding in FL as it does fill up. We make our reservations there before we leave. The rest of the year is a bit easier as we rarely camp during periods school is not is session. Summer is time to let those with kids to fill the CGs and keep the boat on the Atlantic. When they kids and their parents are in the grind less problems finding a site and more relaxing too.
