We camp about once a month in triple digit temps and a couple times a month during the spring/fall (each is about 3 days here in South Texas) and camp more in the winter when temps are pretty moderate. I don't know why we camp as I generally sit in my lazyboy recliner and watch Dish TV while at home I generally sit in my Lazyboy recliner and watch Dish TV. i too have an older 2002 Cougar and have lots of room to park it (actually have a pad on the property) so not much in the way of money outlay except diesel fuel, insurance and an occasional RV part now and again. We used to stay in motels and traveled around by bike but can't put in as many miles on the road these days due to age related heat aversion. We also have a 20 year old 3 lb. totally blind chihuahua that we can't leave at home with a dog sitter (well I could and my opinion on this subject isn't required) making the RV much more convenient than the bike (trike now actually) as we take little Miss Pippy on all trips.

Yep, which is why I go by nights instead of days.

Arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning almost seems like a waste to me, which is why the 2 night trips are very rare for us these days.

I also have a personal rule that I use for any place that is over a 2 hr drive away:

Hours driven has to be less than or equal to the amount of nights we stay.

For example, if it takes me 3 hrs to drive there, we have to stay at least 3 nights.

I'm pretty happy to be able to drive up Friday afternoon (maybe sneak out of work a little early) and then leave later Sunday afternoon to come home if it's a short drive. (And cheap)

From late April until the snow flies, as much as we can! So far this season, we have only missed 3 weekends.

If we can't get away for the weekend, we have been known to set up in the backyard

We do 3 nights about twice a month April - Sept. Always go mid week as it is easier to get a site. Mid Oct. head down to AZ for the winter. Yes we are retired.

Its a common shift schedule in the utility business.
we work 48, 72, 48 hrs for weeks 1,2, and 3.
off week 4.
Then we have a 32 and 40 hour week 5 and 6.

Most of us take off week 5 using 32 hours of vacation and get 2 weeks off out of every 6 weeks.

It all averages out to a 40 hour work week over the 6 week schedule.
