It doesn't matter how FAR you get away.

What matters is you are away, even if it is the driveway.

Driveway Camping

Glad to see that we're not the only crazy ones. Pick the tt up from storage next week and we're looking forward to a driveway camp night. It's been a long winter.

We bought the motorhome last summer and she needed some work before she's ready to hit the road. We have visited more than once in storage with pizza and beer. Getting closer to a campground. Only a few items left to finish up.

oh so that is "highjack". I always wondered about that term.
We, my son and grand daughter , both teen agers, picked out our MH. It was a nice long drive home on a Sunday with many stops. They had to be in school on the next day. I don't want them missing school. I parked it curbside because my driveway isn't long enough. But it sure was fun staying in it parked there even if we didn't extend the sides.

If the motorhomes in the drive and the grandkids come for the night, well "camp" out there. Lately they've wanted the tent set up in the living room to sleep in.

My neighbor thought I was crazy also until I offered him a drink. And you know the rest of the story.

Of course it is handy having it in the driveway when one gets unseasonal highs of between 32C and 38C which translate roughly to between 90F and 100F. My DW (dear wife) has exceptional problems with excessive heat and the MH air is easier to keep the temps comfortable for her. We once hit 41C here in the valley and I am glad that Gracie was available out in the driveway because even I have a problem with 106F at high humidity.

My DW and I have our grown daughter and her 3 kids, ages 5, 2 1/2, and 1, living with us. As such it is more than a blessing that our MH is parked beside the house in the driveway, with water and electric hook up. We spend a lot of weekends or parts of weekends out there watching TV, napping, or playing video games on my laptop.

I have even been known to put out the awning, set up the smoker and grill and cook dinner while enjoying a few Angry Orchards

We are doing the same thing as Imurphy907 ... As we work on the house to ready it for sale we are staying in the MH. It's a sure way to have a clean retreat at the end of the day and to make sure everything you will need for FTing is on board! \ken

More seating for an impromptu party in RV out back! Great " guesthouse" for extra family too! When it rain, we go out and watch TV with the dogs and hang out! Does not cost a thing.. And keeps us sane!

Our RV is stored next to our house and we spend about 10 days a year out there. Whenever we have a lot of company we stay in the coach.

Had a water line break in the house a couple years ago and we spent a month in it while they repaired the house.

We like staying in the coach!!

Add me to the list! Love hanging out in the Ol Girl in the back yard or out on the street when we can't get away.
