LOL back in 88, after being married for 30 years, and rasing two wonderful kids, I came back from work one sunday and my wife sat next to me on the couch, and she said "I want a divorce". HUH I said, and she replied "I want to see what I missed".

I learned my lesson then. Women are like grandkids, should only be appreciated for a max of 2 hours a day.

Sorry...I'm on my 4th but she is the bomb...drives the MH, loads the MH, rides her scooter. drives our 36' 100MPH offshore boat, loads it on the trailer, carries a gun, loves to fish, looks good....but she's still a little nuts. I won't go without her!

You mean the pretty little thing willing to look out for his saggy old wallet and that shiny credit card!
I want to know- if it's been 20 years and you're just now figuring it out-
were you in an accident and just awoke from the coma?
in the secret service and on assignment for 20 years
or
recently quit smoking glaucoma medicine and the brain is clearing?

When you get to your diustination she sits in the motorhome and watches TV or reads her old letters.

Any one married to someone like that?

I tried going by myself but she had a fit about staying home by herself.

Come guys give me some ideas'
Anyone out there no a widow that likes to travel? I'd be happy to trade
mine in; shes 75 so I'm not looking for a young filly. this is nothing new, shes been doing this fof 20 years I keep hoping she will change but nothing changes.
Not quite but close, always have to wait for her to get ready, sleeps while we travel, and when we get to the destination she watches TV or reads magazines. Hardly ever gets out of the MH as the "night air" starts her coughing. She's only 63 but makes great $$ and can she ever save money!! So far this year she's gotten a raise and two bonuses, boy is it going to hurt at tax time!!

Did she find out what she missed?

GWinger, she had several affairs during the next 6 years, finally admitted she made a mistake, asked to come home, WAS REJECTED, and passed on a few years later.

My DW and I have been a close working team for 53 years. We both love to travel in our RV. We divide up our responsibilities. She is in charge of the interior upkeep as well as food and refreshments. I am in charge of the exterior as well as the drive train. We both work together in washing the coach and hooking up the toad. Because of my local government responsibilities we have to plan in advance for our trips. When we set a time for departure we are almost always on time and when we are not it is usually my fault as a result of last minute phone calls.

We are happy campers;

Don

While packing to go to our RV (85 miles away) the little woman would get all flustered and forget stuff. Now I just sit around and let her pack at her own speed and when it looks like she's about ready, I pack and load my stuff. We don't always get out of the house as soon as I'd like, but it's better than her making several trips to town to buy what she forgot. She fishes with me and is one of the few women on THE River that runs outboard on our boat up and down THE River...

A wise person said "one person's trash is another person's treasure."

We've been married 40 years and share the RVing experience. To your specific points:

1. I'm the laggard, not her. She is very punctual and I always seem to have 100 things to do leading up to departure, not just for RV trips. When we deal with our son, who is habitually late, we just give him a much earlier time for the departure and that leads him to arrive about the time we wanted to leave anyway. I suggest having a published departure and an a real, anticipated one that is later.
2. DW sleeps when we travel, too. And the problem is? I enjoy driving while listening to music so on the open highway, I'm fine. When I need another pair of eyes to help us make the correct turns, I ask. My suggestion would be to help make her feel a part of the your travel experience.
3. TV is a must for us, too. I remember driving 600 miles in one day, through some very difficult weather and traffic conditions and still having to sit up the satellite in the dark while I cooked on the grill. I just suck it up and deal with it. It is part of the price of admission.
4. Involvement at the destination may be a matter of interests. When we travel other than for a weekend of relaxation, we have a specific reason for going to that place. DW does the research in advance so she knows better that I do about the sights and features at our destination. If your destinations permit, why not get her involved in advance. What you probably not going to change is her range of interests. You either find a way to play to those or find some way to intertwine them with yours. DW has been very cooperative with me as we travel places where I can race my model sailboats. We often go places were she has an interest. We share an interest in visiting Civil War battlefields and studying the stories behind them.

It is said that women marry men with the prospect of changing them but that it seldom works. The reverse also can be true. Those who are the happiest seem to find a way to play the hand that they are dealt.

I am a morning person, she is not. So she sleeps in while I drive at 4 am.
I think 30 min. early is on time. She dosen't.
If I say we are leaving Friday Morning, she knows to be ready to leave Thursday evening because once I get loaded (the RV) I am ready to hit the road.
My daughter told her teacher, "We are leaving first thing tomorrow morning so My dad will probally be here at noon today to pick me up."
I get ready to go, warm up the engine, let my wife know I am ready, then sit down with a good book while she gets her last minuite things done in about an hour.
As soon as we get through town and are making good progress on the Hwy, my wife remembers what is was she forgot. I tell her to put it on the Walmart list because I did not forget the credit card.

You would think being opposites like we are would cause problems, but I love my wife so I don't let the little things ruin the good things.

Well guys, I hate to rub it in, but I got the pick of the litter! We've been married for 52 years, love each other more now than the day we got married, and both love RV'ing. I wouldn't trade her for six 18 year olds (not up to the task and they're too hard to train!) I thank the Lord for her every day because I certainly don't deserve her!

I just wish mine would just try to drive the RV. Been maried 46 years. She says she knows she can't and won't even try. 28 year old divorced neighbor said she would. What do you think I ought to do??
