Glad to see I'm not alone. She is always ready to go, but not drive.

Sorry guys, I reread my post and I see where you thought I meant my wife would drive part of the way. Actually my wife hates sitting in the car for long trips so I just had to convince her to sit in the truck for approx 11 hours straight through to myrtle beach. I actually bought her a dvd player to watch movies while I drive. Happy wife happy life.

Last year I did finally get my wife to practice driving the truck with the camper in the school parking lot. As someone else said it would only be for an emergency. She did well and I think she could do highway driving no problem.

The good news for us is I love to drive. I would much rather sit behind the wheel than in the passenger seat twiddling my thumbs. Funny thing, that makes my wife very happy.

Exactly. I'm driving the whole trip.

As for driving down all the way on a long run. Myrtle Beach is only 3-4 hours for us. The only long trip we do is Fort Wilderness. That's 9-10 hours. We like to stop somewhere on the way down around southern Georgia. That's about 5-6 hours. It starts the excitement early. Then the following morning, we continue on and arrive at Disney around noon.

But coming home, its hammer down all the way. Just want to get home.

Well, I did it again. Our favorite state parks are still closed for awhile. So I thought, what the heck. Just reserved Ocean Lakes again for the weekend March 11-13. This will be the first trip for the new camper. We'll try to go through as much stuff as we can on the camper beforehand at home but this will be the first campground visit.

I now have two reservations to Ocean Lakes and one to Fort Wilderness. Funny thing is, we still don't have the camper!

I plan to go to North Myrtle Beach soon and eat and buy 100 gallons of diesel, we will be at FT Fisher not far away. I like Ocean Lakes, last time I went I saw a FROG member there and got to meet some people that had Creeks
