Thanks, Kozzy. Course, we might be living in it in the yard between now and then if we loose power.

If your in an RV Park or similar seasonal spot, then that is not camping by the definition, it's a seasonal 2nd home.

Now if you tow/drive your TT/RV each weekend and are lucky to be out West, S.Central or the SE and hitting those "beyond 30 days" camping, the that's just awesome and for us Folks up in the Northern regions, that can get in beyond 21 days of camping that is a true testament to the sport of "camping"!

I'm pretty happy we were able to start the 2012 season in March with that early Spring, I'm not so sure 2013 will provide a similar early Spring, but we can hope! This was our first year with our 2012 Tracer 3150 and we went out 9 separate times for about 25 days in total. I need to winterize "Applejack" and get her all settled in for ol man winter. It's a sad day, but we had some great 1st year memories and hopefully many more to come! Cheers!
We live in Wisconsin, and yes, we towed our TT for every one of those 62 days we camped this season. But I don't get why having a permanent site isn't considered "camping." Just because it's sitting somewhere permanent doesn't change the dynamics - you still sleep in your TT, you most likely sit around campfire at night, you cook outdoors as much as possible. How is that any different than us towing our TT to a site and doing the exact same thing?

Well you addressed the point - towing to your spot vs taking your daily driver (or TV) to the spot where your TT is. The latter being the seasonal or permanent site.

And i like the other comparison of If you go to your buddies, bring some beer, steaks, sit around a fire and sleep over - is that camping too

The seasonal types don't routinely have to go through the harrowing, gruelling often heart-breaking experience that us rugged nomadic types deal with every single trip:
