Trouble getting away

Anybody else having trouble squeezing in a camping trip? We were on fire at the start of the season reeling off 8 nights in short order. Lately, I've been so busy with Real Estate classes/exams and kids stuff that the camper is feeling abandoned. I hope it's feelings aren't hurt. I am thinking of pulling it out onto the driveway and throwing it up just to show some love.

I had envisioned 25 nights a year so we'll have a little ground to make up....especially this fall. Hope everyone has the wind in their hair and are racking up lots of nights camped.

Yup. We've been out 16 nights so far, with four more next weekend. Baby number 3 is due in 38 days, so we'll have to take at least one weekend off from camping ....... Hopefully we can get out a bunch yet this fall too.
Enjoy every bit of it!

Wow!...16 nights is pretty strong with young ones. Congrats on your pending addition.

I envisioned atleast one trip a month, so far I have not been able to as well - we only have 7 nights under our belt for this year - Last year I did 37 so I feel your pain on being too busy.

We'll just have to finish strong. The "Blackberry Winter" that has come through this weekend is really making it rough not being out there though.

We're in the same boat. I was also trying for once a month. We've been out once for 4 nights so far over Memorial Day weekend and I had to cancel one trip in early May for 3 nights.

But, we should make it up shortly with 9 nights at end of June and 6 nights at end of July.

Ohhhhhh yes....6-9 nighters will surely catch you up in a hurry. I have yet to get away for that length of time. I can imagine your just about "native" after that many days..lol.

Last year we stayed for 10 days at a camp with full hookups and it's only about 15 min away. My wife is a teacher, so she has Summers off while I slave away all year. ;( we can camp and drive back and forth to work. Best part is, I serve on a board at the camp and do tree and maint work there so camping is freeee! And it's quiet. If anyone is traveling through central Nebraska and needs a nice place to stop for a few days, pm me.

Like I said, enjoy every opportunity to get out there
