Time to scream let me out

I have been cooped up in the house long enough.I want to get out and do something. It’s getting closer to RV season. With the rising cost of diesel fuel, I’m not sure how much we can do this summer. Also dealing with a dog that has cancer. May be the last year for him .time for some fresh air and the smell of the grill! cooking, hamburgers, hotdogs, or steak.

Even if you go a mile, getting out in the rv has a quality all of its own. Not a function of how far you go, but rather the enjoyment wherever you decide to stay. Feel for your situation with man’s best friend, but suspect he enjoys the outing as well. Safe travels.

I, too, am getting the itch to get out. Won't go far...maybe Delaware SP or over to the KOA at Buckeye Lake (good place to flush out the AF). There's nothing like the taste of that 1st hot dog or hamburger grilled over a wood fire & a nice cold beer to go with. Now if the weather would just cooperate

P.S. I removed the dup pic.

I completely agree with the desire to get out there., Busy season this summer with several long distance trips. It all starts next week with a shake down trip a couple hours down the road quickly followed with a visit to Freightliner for annual maintenance and continuing to Fl.

I completely agree with the need to get out on the road. As was suggested, even if it is a mile away. I would also think that your pup, while fighting cancer might like the fresh air as well - comfort therapy.

A burger taste better when at a campground or RV park.

We are both down with a severe case of cabin fever here in S. Indiana. Our MH has been at a body shop since May 2022; brought it home minus repairs 3 weeks ago. It's driveable, but minus the lower half of the front cap. We go to court April 10 to get this insurance thing settled, then back to the body shop for actual repairs.
There are many state parks/COE's within a ˝ days drive of our house, and nature is calling-so to speak.
We're gonna use up the fuel money we've saved in the past 10 months. I've installed 3 new Renogy 12v, 100A deep-cycle solar rated batteries already, and have a Pulsar 4000W portable genset arriving Friday for dry camping.

I can totally relate! We are in Minnesota…3rd snowiest winter on record. Ready to be done and get out there. Just retired and have been planning trips for the next year. First one about a month out.

Sorry to hear about your puppy dog…we travel with 3 dogs and one of them turned 16 in January. Still happy and active but his age is showing…

Minne- snow -ta here, too. When I read the title of this thread, what immediately came to mind was, "Get me out of this state!"

I'm preparing to retire shortly myself and want nothing more than to get out. That's why I'm RV shopping at the moment. I'm going to the RV show in Ramsey next weekend.

My plan is to pack just what I need in my RV and tour the country while looking for where I want to settle down permanently. I already live with only what I use on a weekly basis so getting rid of anything won't be an issue. Along the way, I hope to find a dog that needs a home and take him with me. My RV adventure will be the first vacation I've had in 22 years and I'm more than ready for it!
