Are you a morning, afternoon, evening or night person?

When are you at your best — early in the day, in the afternoon or evening, or maybe late at night — a night owl? That’s our question this week. We have never asked this question before, so we have no idea how you’ll respond. So let’s see. We’ll post the final tally in issue 802 (July 15) of the RV Travel Newsletter.

I have always been a late sleeper and now as an old person I get up about 10:00 A.M. and get to bed at midnite. I also eat between naps. My spouse awakens at 8:00 AM.
The morning people always wake me up with barking dogs, loud talking and noisy engines. I hope they read this.

We’re definitely morning folks. In fact, come 8pm it’s all we can do to stay awake (if we have to). But, by 4am we’re up and about.

When my sons were small it was after their bed time that I could get things done or do my own thing. Even though they are grown with kids of their own, I still am a late night person

Not sure about your comment that the dealers are not realizing we (older RVers) are their biggest group. Since you admit that you do not have that many under 50 folks reading and answering your on line mag. Maybe we are out numbered but the younger ones but they don’t connect with the RV Travel site. If you ever figure out how to write for them to catch their attention, PLEASE post your secret; we have grandchildren that seem oblivious to what we have to say. 🙂

Spent my whole life “Getting up early ” to go to work. Now retired, I sleep in late and enjoy staying up. Watch tv late night showe I could never watch. Do a lot of writing late at night. 3 books so far.

When I’m not RVing I’m a night person. When were on the road a day person. I don’t want to miss anything in these beautiful United States. I will stay up late sometimes just to look at the stars but up early to catch the sunrise. God sure has given us some gorgeous paintings. My husband is an early bird. I don’t drink coffee but he does so we can still watch the day unfold together with our 3 1/2 year old great-grandson. He’s going to know about some of our stars before he starts to school.

Definitely a night person. Always seem to still be going later in the evening, usually walking out of the gym where I train at 11 pm with the owner! Read til about 1 a.m. and up about 6:30a.m.; but then I laze around, meditate, read my Bible and head out to play pickleball at 9 a.m. Regenerate about 5pm with a 10 minute snooze. I’d like to not be this person. I know I am missing so much of the day by not getting going by 6 a.m.

When fun-camping, i get up with the sun and a cup of coffee. When working at home or on the road, 10 is too early.

Guess that means it’s time for me to retire, except my bank says I have 30 years more work to do…

I’ve always loved mornings… And my good cup of coffee. Things are still quiet, the birds are singing, and the sun casts a pretty glow as the world wakes up. When I’m camping i love watching the sun wake up the mountainside as it casts it’s glow on the tops of the trees. Least favorite is between noon & 6-ish. The world is noisier, the sun’s light is harsher, everyone’s in a hurry rushing here and there. I love evenings almost as much as the morning. Life begins to settle down & once again the sun shines a golden hue over the earth. Ahhh!!

Definitely a morning person! After being in the Marine Corps for twenty years I naturally wake up between 0500 and 0600 depending on what time I hit the hay the night before, which is usually around 2200-2300. I retire next month and can’t wait to get an RV and start a new adventure traveling the country for a few years!

Can’t quite figure it out for me. I’m not an early morning person, but definitely not a night person either. Afternoons work if i’m doing physical labor, but not when I’m at my desk, but then I do often get a second wind later in the day.

Night person, but in order to fall asleep by 1:00 a.m., I take a Dramamine tablet around 9:00. If I don’t do that, I’m awake till 3:00 or later.

And while I have your attention, I need to gripe about having to start over from the beginning of the newsletter each time I click on a hyperlink to learn more. Isn’t there a way to go back to where the hyperlink originated? Drives me crazy! And I eventually give up, not finishing the newsletter. Please provide a “back arrow.” Thank you, Chuck!

Wendy, when you click on a link in the newsletter, try RIGHT-clicking it, and choose “open in new tab” or “open in new window”. When you finish reading the clicked material, just close that tab (or window). The newsletter will be waiting for you, at just the point you were on when you clicked the link.

Another alternative is to hold the ‘ctrl’ key down and click on the link.

Definitely morning with some lovely Sumatran roast coffee. The morning is full of possibilities for new adventures.

Morning, but only after coffee and some “quiet time.”

I think 7 a.m. is a decent time to get up and after a few cups of coffee, I’m ready to get my day going around 9. We are never the first to leave the campground.

Morning…I wake at 3:30AM-4AM and arrive at work at 5AM. In bed by 9 or 9:30PM.

I am a morning person. My husband of 55 years is a night person. I go to bed by 9 and rise by 5 a.m. He goes to bed around 1 a.m. and sleeps until noon! We say since we have only seen each other for 25 years in time, it is why we are still together!!!
