This entire thread makes me feel inadequate. I think I have camper-envy

With a business and what not, we are staying within 5 hours of home and completely in WI this year. But we plan to get out as often as we can; even if its local.

Cheers everyone. Love to read about your epic trips.

Replace the axles and all 4 tires on our 2012 Forest River Salem 27RKSS which has 2000 miles on it in total.
and if we have enough cash left over take a couple road trips. Maybe visit my brother in Waterloo Ontario or take in a NASCAR race in NH.

Either way I will have the electric sys protected withthe new surge in line protector. Our first and only camping trip last year resulted in ours and 7 other trailers being damaged from a power blast. One couple from Ontario beside us ended with a fire.

x2 Scott!!
I was thinking the same thing as I read those itineraries!!

Congrats to all of you with the trips planned to 'must-see' destinations like the Tetons etc.....
Please take tonnes of photos and post on here, so those of us who live vicariously can enjoy!

As for me, I am also staying within 5-6 hours of home, at Provincial Parks in Ontario.

X3 Three or four hours one way is as long a trip as we can take because my boss
(self employed) is very tight with vacation time.Maybe later in life he will lighten up a bit.

Then you need to be more positive about your boss
Just like the Taxi owner... but then again..........

Last spring I brought a portable surge protector and it came in handy the second time I used it.

Why was it necessary to replace the axles so soon? Do the tires wear out as fast too?

Iggy, where do you boondock in Quartzite and Lake Havasu?
We were down there a few years ago on a scouting trip, visited some friends from Washington state. They were camper south of Quartzite on the east side of the highway, maybe 5 miles (?) out. They had about 40 acres all to themselves!

And a mile or so north of Lake Havasu, we drove up this dry gulch for a few miles, only to find a half-dozen campers and fifth wheels, all set up really nice for a long stay. That wasn't you and your friends, was it? Haha

We would sure like to do that some winter, but it is a heck of a long drive from Manitoba!

We are planning to go to Wyoming this spring, and stop at the Little Bighorn Battlefield. We may go down into Colorado, as we haven't been there in a long time. Love it there. Or may just circle back past the Devil's Tower, maybe stop near Deadwood again.

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.

David can I come with you? I like your plans better than mine.

My friends usually use the same place every year in Quartzsite.
It is south of Interstate 10 and about 5 miles east of town and 2-3 miles south. This area is so wide open you can probably have 10,000 rigs and it still wouldn't be crowded. I usually only go for a day or two as we only live east about 100 miles so its no big deal.
I do like seeing all the new stuff they have for RV's. Everything under the sun you can buy here during the RV week.
Here is a link if anyone want to know more.
Quartzsite Arizona RV Show

And if you like rocks and meteriorites they have one for that also right now.
Hobby Craft and Gems Show
