We travel mid May to mid October continuous. While at our winter home we will take a weekend or so each month, and a couple of one week trips. We also will use the motorhome for day trips to the beach a couple of times per month.

We take one 4-6 month summer trip and 4-6 weekenders the rest of the year. More or less. We have 85,000 miles on the RV.

Once a month for 4-5 days minimum. Wife just quit her job so may do even more.

90 day Climate refugee Jan 1 to Florida, or Ariz, or somewhere warm. 21 day New England foliage trip each fall. Possibly a couple of shorter local trips in between. Cannot get DW to leave home in the summer, Grandkids, garden and the Jersey shore beaches.

We usually take 1 or 2 big trips per year that amount to 6-8 weeks, plus 6-8day trips every couple of months. I try to keep it in my shop unless it's going somewhere for at least 5 days.

When we bought the rig we were full timing. Based upon our daughter's, Lori, injury in Iraq we built a house next door to her and are pretty much put until Lori recovers. At present I am in a hotel in Phoenix awaiting Lori's surgery this week. Wife is at home base taking care of 8 yr old grandaughter. We will be back to at least 6 months as soon as Lori recovers. I see the RV as therapy for everyone. I think the big thing is, be flexible and change if life changes. If a person can afford to hit the road, do so. Life here is short, enjoy everything that is possible.

Oh, we have been in 49/50 (or is it 57) states. Our first year we started from Arizona, went to California and then to each and every border state. That included every coastal state, every Canadian border state, gulf coast, Mexican border and back to AZ. Eleven thousand miles of pure enjoyment. We didn't camp in each one but at least drove on a road there.

We also drove to and around the gorgeous state of Alaska in 2007. Too wet to drive to Hawaii.

Am planning the '12 trip right now.

Since I retired, wife retired a year before me, we've only been able to take 2 trips a year in the motorhome. One from mid October to the end of April and the other for 12 days in September. We take one trip on the boat each year, from June 1 to Labor Day in Puget Sound and Canada.

I don't know how I found time to go to work.

Ken

When I was working we took one long 4 week vacation every year and then used the coach on weekends when we could. Now though with retirement and all we use the coach at least 8-9 months of the year. Would sure like to sell the S&B but in our area you can't even give it away.
