We have owned our Scamp for seven years and averaged about 40 nights per year.... Wow! I didn't realize it was that much until just now!
We generally use our Scamp from February to early November on trips which last from a couple of days to just over three weeks. We would like to go longer but always end up back at our home, which we love and which provides access and obligations to friends and family.

Sigh. Four times.. the shortest was four nights, the longest eight nights. Dang ole work seems to get in the way of fun. Going to the NOG (five nights) in October and have a two night campout planned for November... then winterizing and put into hibernation until (at least) late March. So, that will make six campouts for 2011.

We did a 2-night stay in Indiana in May, 4-nights in Stoughton, WI at Memorial Day weekend, 2 nights again in Stoughton in June, a 10-day trip to Philadelphia in June, and another 2-night stay in Iowa in July. I hope for one more weekend trip in October.

This Saturday will be my first trip with the trailer since I had my stroke last December. I made a couple overnight campouts sleeping in my camper shell but now I'm ready to hitch up and go to Morro Bay on the central coast for 4 days. Been back to work since July 11 with just some weakness in right arm/hand but I hooked up today for a short ride and everything was ok.

6 nights. Not nearly enough. Working too much, playing too little.

We used our trailer(s) about 210 days last year. This year it looks like about 3oo days.

We've been on six different trips this year since we got our Scamp in April. About 25 days total so far, with 1 more trip of 4 days planned in mid October. We love Scamping!!

After picking up my Escape 17B in Chilliwack, BC, I spent 104 days in the southwest US & Canada. I'll be heading out for a weekend at Niagara Falls next week & hope to follow the fall colors south in a month or so.

Year 11

"Want to trade lives for a year"

McBrew,

We are going into year 11 of RVing.

Over the past 10 years we have spent over 2000 days traveling in our various RVs. Giving up our working life has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Hopefully we can keep it up for 10 more years.

My dad used to tell me that "Life is a series of choices; make good ones."

Safe travels,
