Cool Vacation from vacation!

Greetings all! -

6 days from picking up our new '06 Revolution!!

Topic for comments:

How many of us take off a week or two every so often
to go on a "vacation"? ...Park/Store the RV and schedule a
cruise/flight to parts unknown? Any tips on how you do it
successfully? Adventure stories encouraged. How NOT to
do it allowed.

We vacation from our vacation a few times a year. Before full-timing we acquired timeshares so we use those. Once we decide on a destination we will search the convenient airports for the best fares then store the motorhome fairly close. Some airport parking lots will accommodate RVs for reasonable $$$. We are Thousand Trails members so sometimes take advantage of their storage lots.

We have also had remodel work done while we went on a cruise.

Occasionally we are traveling in an area that also has available condos & large parking so we will park in the lot while staying in a condo that is 3 times the size of our home....sorta weird to look out the window on our "home".

Next Spring we are planning a 6 week adventure to Hawaii so we'll search for the best fares from any airport in the West.

Did a 7 week Canadian Rockies to Vancouver Island in 2014 in condos while leaving the motorhome in Epharta, WA. Great trip!

Our biggest issue is my 1 orchid plant that needs a plant sitter if it is more than 2 weeks.

We don't store the RV. We keep it at the S&B ŕeady to travel We use it all but three months out of the year. I go fishing here in Oklahoma as long as we have no snow too deal with.

We've gone to Ft Lauderdale in Florida a couple times to take a cruise.

The first ttime we stored our motorhome in a storage yard east of the Ft Lauderdale airport.

The second time we stored it at a RV park we stayed at in there storage area.

I just leave it in the carport and go but I would imagine if you full time it could be a problem.
