Avg of How Many Nights You Camp per year

With exceptions of full timers what is the average Nights you camp in a year? I get 5 weeks vacation but only use 3-4 broken up for camping and I can't seem to camp more than 30 Nights per year, I also have a 2 Zone Thousand Trails membership but camp 6 or so days out of that? Also this is only my 3rd year camping with an RV did about 15-20 in tents.

Might not be the best place to post this but it seems to get a lot of hits in this forum?

The last couple years I think we've been out around 20-25 nights per year.

This year we'll have 8 over the 4th of July alone, but planning on hopefully another 8-10 on weekend trips, and then another 8-10 when we leave it sit at a county park for a month this August.

I switched jobs and lost a week of vacation, so we can't be quite as liberal with 4 day weekends as we have been.

30-40 sounded about right but last year scooped up a seasonal site 5 minutes from work. Saves 1 hr commute each way every day. Took 2 weeks out to the east coast first 2 weeks of July and camped until thanksgiving (Cdn). Lovin it and gas savings pays for it. No brainer. Also answered the question "could we live full time in a 30' 5er?" Yup!!

Wife and I have this terrible habit of having Jobs, so we average only about 20 nights a year!

Average 100 to 120 depending on the weather. We are both retired and love our traveling and exploring.

Yeah that is the same problem we have although that problem allows me to camp, if I didn't have that problem I wouldn't be camping....lol
