Just looking at the poll. We rving type people are pretty mobile. No one has stated yet that they don't leave thier home state. Nothing wrong with never leaving your home state, just an interesting fact. I know several people who have never left thier home town, let alone thier home state.

I am both. In the winter, camping with two different clubs is local. From June through November, I'm a traveler.

We are not retired however we still travel alot to explore many other states all the time. Our MH is 2008 with lots of great memories already and at 55,000 + miles we hope to make many more with our family and friends that travel with us.

We'll stay within the state or neighboring state. Most of our time out is locally places usually under 100miles or so from home for weekends.

Both! I like to take the rig out as often as possible. If there is no time or money for a long road trip thenI go local and camp for a weekend.

Needed to be able to select more than one. We like to do a varity. With most of our families living from Oklahoma City to Houston, sometimes it's about going on the road. Come April, it's a short trip to a neighboring state dragging the '65 Mustang from here to St. George, UT for a Mustang National Show. We haven't done it yet in the current RV, but with the class C we did a lot of boondocking at Mt Charleston in the summer and Lake Mead in the winter in the NPS parks at $5 per night on Golden Pass or go to a park with facilities within a half tank just to get away for the weekend.

Just finished a 18,700 mile, 111 day trip this summer. Guess I'm a traveler!

We have camped in our driveway, in our state, in neighboring states, and their neighboring states; all the way to the Pacific coast, Gulf-coast, Atlantic coast. Alaska is on our bucket list for next summer. We are IMO traveling (albeit at a slow pace) campers.

We've been from Maine to Arizon in the MH in the last two years and still have much yet to see. Still need to make it to Washingto state and Florida and all the places in between, and to Alaske too. So. it is safe to say we don't stay in our home state of Colorado even though it is a great place to tour.

Glad you enjoyed it. It's not as intimidating to visit Alaska as many people think.

Let me know when you decide to come this way. Be glad to help in anyway I can. I'm headed to Ohio Wednesday to get the MH south for the winter. I use Ohio as home base in the winter time to head further south.

I agree, Francesca! I voted but wasn't happy with just one choice.
