We have our rig pretty much fully stocked, just need to bring what we need for the trip. Now we need to go through and take out all the pots and pans we never use. Have a bunch that my parents left, really nice heavy solid aluminum ones plus some stainless steel ones we've bought. Tried to get the wife to help the last two trips out and so far we haven't done it. Hate to think about getting rid of them but why are we carrying them if we've never used them? Don't really need the space and are no where near our GVWR or GVAR but still don't need them in the rig and it would be easier to find stuff if we do need something!

We have been living full time in our RV for a year and a half now. Every time we get ready to head to another location I get excited.

I have always gotten excited before any trip and I do not think it will ever go away, I hope not. I will think of every thing I might have forgotten so sleep is hard to come by.

It's only been a few years for me. I still get excited and sleep light in anticipation no matter if a short or long trip.

Hell, I get excited driving the rig to the car wash!

Hey, that's tomorrow! Pass me the Unisom!

We've had the motorhome for over 6 years and still get "trip happy". Can usually sleep before going. You might try a dose of Maker's Mark or Knob Creek the evening before to relax you somewhat.

I am so new new to this sometimes it is over whelming! Isn't it amasing how fast you run out of space (people space) in these things!
Glad you had a good trip ! We've had ours about a year now, and the excitement is still there . Believe it or not we are just now planning our first 'camping only" trip for next week. (I'm on vacation ) We got the mh primarily to travel across country to see relatives. The main focus was our two Great Danes (kids) so yes I understand 'running out of people room'.. If we ever trade up, we'll get one with a slide or two. But for now we are good. Rattle the camper keys and my boy goes nuts. He's always ready ! We have now made two trips out west for 5000 miles, and yes lived/camped in it the whole time and loved it ! Well, after the last trip the kids(Danes) and DW were ready to get home. But no probs..
This time we are staying within a couple hours from home, so maybe I can relax some... (I drive for a living) So I am excited !!!

Been camping for years and the excitement hasn't worn off yet! I live in Pa. and as soon as the weather starts to change for the better, the "bug" starts to infect me!! I don't think it will ever go away!! I only wish my husband had the same problem!!
