What do you miss most?
 
When you hit the road for a trip, what do you miss most on the road that you usually have at home?

For us it used to be very simple. Ice! Gotta have ice in our cold drinks and we never had it with our old rig. Now with the Georgetown we have an ice maker in the freezer.

Now that we have ice, it's our morning lattes that we miss. Gotta make due with good ole' coffee. Not enough room to carry an espresso machine.

Ol, man, hate I had to read that !!! :rolleyes: Stong black coffee through a peculator for me. But per the doctors orders, it has to be decaffeinated. :badmood:

i guess the ice is a important thing but we always bring lots of ice. the coffee thing is the wife's love she brings her machine with us and she will not miss a cup.. i guess what i miss the most is the ease of owning a dog at home is easier than at the campground. here we have a 6ft fenced in backyard so it is easy to get the dog to do her business but at the campground it is a bit of a production..

We seem to have deer just about anywhere we camp around here, sometimes elk too.

The not being able to sleep thing cracks me up though. I sent my mom some chocolate covered espresso beans for X-mas one year. She didn't know what they were and sat munching on them all evening. Yeah, don't think she slept for a couple of days after that.

I'm not sure if there's anything, got a coffee maker, ice machine, Select Comfort Matress, TV and usually enough food and drinks for a small army. The only difference is at home my 1500 gallon septic tank gets dumped every 3 years and I don't have to do it:nansplit:, otherwise we usually have all the bases covered.
I know, I miss the sound of me cutting grass every weekend, yeah that's it NOT!!!!

My Bosch Tassimo covers my latte and coffee fix, but I do miss the ice maker. Don't have one of those yet! Also miss the washer and dryer when out for more than a week.

Hard to think of anything I really miss while camping, but on the flipside, when I have to go home, I miss everything about camping, and I LOVE the percolated coffee, in lieu of expresso, I add a few shots of Bailey's... YUM

Oh, yeah, Bailey's, I'll second that! Something about percolated coffee I have noticed. It just tastes better in the great outdoors at a great campsite.

I miss the bigger shower and having more than six gallons of hot water.....but that small sacrifice is worth the fun of camping.

You hit the nail on the head, although on the longer trips, I miss the washer/dryer - I just HATE having to track down a laund-ro-mat and sitting around with a bunch of tweekers while I wash the kids clothes and make sure they don't steal my wife's panties. Which reminds me... I need to look for an old fashion washboard to throw in the TT.

I don't miss anything. Wish I could camp full time. HMMM mabey I will when the teenagers are done with me.

dezolen 04-09-2010 09:54 AM

Can't say we miss anything. Certainly don't miss thinking of chores to do when we do stay at home. When out with the trailer we do only what we want and when we want including nothing.
Gotta love it.

tmmar 04-09-2010 10:01 AM

If my kids and grand kids are with us, there's not much I miss.

skeeterbait8 04-09-2010 10:00 PM

Seeing as how we are in a tiny pop up....... a real couch! :crying:

When she leaves the campsite, to get more of my favorite "adult beverage", I miss my wife. https://bestsmileys.com/crying/2.gif

But, when she return, I no miss her no-mo. https://bestsmileys.com/happy/4.gif

Well Duh. Since we take the coffee maker, icemaker, washer/dryer, HDTV, adequate hot water and plenty of room for a shower, I guess we miss overlooking the water in the mornings drinking our coffee and thinking should I take the boat out or not. Mowing the grass is way down the list. Yea we carry the kitchen sink too. Isn't camping wonderful..:signhavefun:

Lost/missed
 
of all the things I've lost. I miss my mind the most.

JimChow 04-10-2010 07:45 PM

Even with a mattress topper I miss our bed at home.....but only the first few nights, then I start to enjoy the camper bed.

PattiPatti 04-10-2010 08:23 PM

Water pressure!

Especially in the shower. I'm never really convinced that all the shampoo is out of my hair.
