We will be going to the Gulf coast for 5 days in April. Local trips to Texas State Patks close to home. One big trip to Laconia NY in the fall as it stands now. I want to go camping Today, but my DW says I have to work.
I can only dream of maybe this weekend, should be in the low 60's.
Happy Camping

With all the problems I have had so far, and problems on this forum I haven't had yet, afraid to go anywhere. Might try month of March in Arizona if I get the nerve up. Wayne

My DW tells me they aren't problems, they are adventures.

1. Memorial Day Weekend - will probably be the first camping trip in 2012. Going to a private campground in Otis, MA, with a bunch of family (20+).

2. Hammonasset State Park, CT (most of June) - I work from home, and I define home as anyplace with reliable 3G wireless coverage where I can park my TT.

3. Finger Lakes Wine Festival, Watkins Glen, NY (July 14-16) - I've been going every year since 2008. The day time wine tasting and live entertainment is fine, but the night time partying throughout the entire camping area is always very entertaining!

4. Northampton Beach Campground, NY (through the end of July) - the last week of July is the official "family vacation week" this year. The head count is expected to be over 60, so I may end up wanting to getting back to work in order to get some rest.

5. FROG International Rally (Aug 13-17) - My first "long distance" RV adventure. 800 miles one-way. Looking forward to meeting fellow FROGS, especially those who were kind enough to respond to my posts over the past few months. And I'm also looking forward to the factory tours and hopefully meeting some of the folks who made my new V-Lite.

6. Labor Day Weekend - will probably end up back in Otis with the same crew that started the camping season.

7. Hammonasset State Park, CT (second half of Sept) - back to our favorite local campground. It's so quiet during the week when all of the kids are back in school.

Not a bad start. Still have a few weekends to fill in.

January: Cottonwood/Rancho Jurupa Park
February: San Clemente SB
March: San Clemente SB
May: San Diego
June: San Clemente SB

OK, its time to wander elsewhere besides San Clemente SB....working on it. Should be able to fill in some missing slots with other places. Taking a road trip this weekend to check out Calico Ghost Town. I need to find out what type of drive it will be between the wind and going up and down hill.

Chances are I will cancel some of the San Clemente reservations if I find something else I'm interested in. Would you be surprised that I hated this CG the first time I stayed there? It's true.

Still pondering where I want to go for the 4th of July and Labor Day weekend. Somewhere cool and not so hot (like SC SB). I can't get away for Memorial Day unless it very close to home - besides I'm heading out in less than a week after that.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Leaving Saturday, headed to Texas. We have just over two weeks to kill, we'll see how far down the gulf coast we can get before we have to return. Many appointments in Feb.

Somewhere around the first of March, we're headed west. We'll figure out where the temps will be in the mid to upper 70's, and head there. Once there, we'll follow the thermometer north. Wanting to spend some time in the Az desert riding the buggy if'n it ain't too hot yet. Figure we'll spend most of the summer somewhere close to southern Idaho, have family there.

The main trip for the year will be up through Nebraska and across South Dakota in September. About 10 days total. Memorial Day weekend will be spent at a State Park in central Missouri, Father's Day weekend going to Stockton Lake and camping with my youngest brother and his family, a few other weekends planned at a variety of Missouri State Parks. Several more trips to be planned and considering another extended trip to Colorado.

I really wish I could make the FROG rally in Elkhart but that one is just a few too many miles. I noticed no one want to come visit me this winter in Arizona. I'm really hurt
Iggy - We are down here in Tucson, but we are already booked through the end of March. Already had a hunting trip first of the year, this weekend at are annual Desert Camp outside of Florence. Next month in Pinetop for a few days and then the Blue Ridge area on the Mongollon Rim the following week for a few more days, but the 5er will stay there through mid March when we head back up there. April, heading to the property in New Mexico.

Then there's the summer camps...

We're still thinking! One plan is to go south in I-405/I-5. First stop at Columbia River RV Park for a couple of nights, then on down the Columbia Gorge to Tollbridge County park, near Hood River, Oregon. We'd probably head north then to one of our favorites - Charbonneau SP near Richland, then another favorite - Beebe Bridge County park in Chelan Falls. From there, who knows. It depends on the stae of the travel account, the price of gas, etc.

Maybe across the border at Osouyous (SP?) and through BC to Vancouver and then home.
