Currently we are in the Rio Grande Valley from home in South Carolina.
We left home on the 31st of December and will start back on the 1st of April. That's three months. Then a week in Maggie Valley, NC in early May. Two weeks at the beach in August. Then head back to the Rio Grande Valley after Thanksgiving. This year should be about 135 days.

Just parked our new Sierra 345 RET up on a lake in Western KY. Plan on being here for 5 months. Looking forward to spending time with the grandkids and friends for the summer. Sure won't be as hot as central Florida. We have owned houseboats, so this should be easy to do.

We are out from mid-January to mid-May and mid-September to mid-November. During the summer we are out a couple of weeks. We are bluegrassers and are fortunate enough to be able to follow music in Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina in the winter and the Carolinas, Kentucky and Tennessee in the fall. During the summer, we go to festivals in New England. We volunteer at about six festivals a year. To save money, we stay in as many state, municipal, and national parks as we can, using the Golden Age card. We also dry camp at festivals. Passport America offers reduced camping as well

We usually camp about 40 days a year. Then there is about 10 more days when Carol chases me out of the house for being under foot. This yearwe should be gone alot. Besides the usual stuff, we are planning a 5 or 6 week trip through upper NY State, Ontario, New Hampshire, New Brusnwick, NovaScotia, N\Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and back to sunny Rochester, NY..

Not enough to justify the cost of the MH, but then again the number of nights will increase when I retire. Only about 40 annually at this time.

We use ours three months in the winter in Florida, and 3-4 days each month during the summer. last year we spent 6 months in our motor home (3 months in Florida and 3 months traveling out west).
