It all depends upon what is happening at that time, whether we are camping with friends or by ourselves.

We will travel up to 400 miles for a long weekend if there is an event closer to their home, sometimes they will come to an event near our home.

By ourselves again it depends upon what we would like to do that weekend. If we would like to be in the mountains or at a favorite campground we could still travel up to 400 miles.

As someone said it is more about getting away than how far you go. Sometimes it is the destination, sometimes the travel.

We have travelled up to 12,000 miles in a 5 week period. Still working at that time and wanted to go to the east coast from the west. Nowadays the distance may be the same but the time will be longer.

Mel, saw you comment regarding 10 miles. We have a State Park that might be 2 miles from home as the crow flies, maybe 5 or 6 miles by road. We go over and stay there a few days at a time, and it's like being 200 miles away! Works for me! -Al

75 miles to my campsite south of the D.C. Rat race. A whole different world. I go almost every weekend. Surrounded by trees. If it's a holiday weekend, I avoid 95 and take the back roads.

In my neck of the woods, anything more than about 4 hours of driving put it outside of the 3 day weekend excursion. At least for me.
