Anyone camp regularly?

Postby 225 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 6:34 am

Looking for folks that use their camper at least once a month.

Mine is near completion, and I will be camping at least once a month. Year round.

Anyone doing the same?

225,

Possibly not as often as once a month but we often tow it on day trips just in case we decide to camp overnight.
It is also used as overnight accommodation on some of our longer non camping trips such as visiting relations on trips that take more than one day.

Take it easy.

Typically in the warmer months (apr-sept) well go once a month, usually just after work on Friday, then come back early on Sunday. During the summer, well usually slip one week long trip in....

that's the longest we've camped. 6 days consecutively. Although I'd like to spend two weeks just rambling around the southwest....perhaps Route 66....I'm thinking about your neck of the woods this summer...don't know about the heat and bugs though :). I need some sunrise cafe....

I get more relaxation and "head clearing" out of the weekends....there's something about living on teardrop time...

I've managed to camp in my trailer once a month during the dry season (May through Oct.) the last two years I've had it. Mostly I do mid-week 3- and 4-day trips within a couple of hundred miles of home.

This summer I've become more prepared for wet weather camping and hope to extend my camping season by a month or two.

17 nights (21 days) so far this year. One night for the Hoosier Shiveree in January, one night Easter weekend, 12 nights (15 days) in late April to early May in the Southwest, and 3 nights (4 days) two weeks ago for the Hoosier Spring Tearjerker gathering. That's already more than I camped all last year!!

Hi Emmitt,

Yes my wife and I go once a month. We just finished our teardrop last fall and have found time to venture out. We both have scouting back rounds. Our boys went monthly during their scouting days.

I have found that the calendar pages turn over quickly. We set the date and plan around that time.

Stevem, you said it! Get the dates on the calendar early. It's easy to say "no, not that weekend" than it is to try to sneak saw for a weekend...

Now that I have (almost) finished our rebuild, :hammerhead: we have been camping every weekend, :vroom: and plan to unit it just gets too darn hot. :sweaty: Then we plan to restart camping in the fall as soon as it cools off again, and camp until it gets too cold. :snowstorm:

about 30 night in just under a year. Is that regular enough (one long trip that was 7 or 8 days)

I've been using mine about every other week since March, sometimes with 3 weekends in a month. After a long week in the office I can't think of a better way to relax than to hit the road.

My trips are either boondocking trips with friends or Tearjerker's gatherings, and its even been used as a place to sleep so I don't have to drive home after a party.

I think my record so far is 5 weekends in a row. Always have an awesome time, but even I needed a weekend to rest after that! :FNP

Normally I camp almost every weekend starting in July through September, and a couple trips in May and June, and at least one trip in the winter (usually a "Man Weekend".

This year we are a bit behind because we sold our 26' trailer and been busting butt getting my tiny trailer camp-able.
