On a scale of 1-5, how would you rate your 2022?

Can you believe it’s already the end of 2022? It feels like just yesterday we were ringing in the new year. And what a year it’s been!

If you had to rate your 2022, how would you rate it? Give it a 5 if it was a wonderful year for you. Give it a 3 if it was just an okay year. And go ahead and give it a 1 if it was a terrible year for you (we hope not!)

Feel free to leave a comment explaining your number rating. Tell us about your favorite part of the year.

Any day you’re alive is a good day. Although there are times I think that being dead would be a good thing too, I could use the rest. Insert laughing emoji here.

Hi, Mitzi and Ed. That reminds me of when people complain about getting old and creaky, etc.: “Getting old sucks.” I remind them that it’s (usually) better than the alternative. I hope you have a very healthy and happy 2023. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com

I would have given it a 6 if gas/diesel prices were where they should be but saw more of America and met many kindred spirits. But the best was seeing a family of cinnamon colored black bears in Grand Mesa on the last day of my stay and right as I was thinking how nice it would be if I saw one. Thanks God for providing a mom and 2 cubs – hope for the future and another reason to turn off all noise and go outside and play.

It was a fantastic year for us here in Arid-zona…We both woke up every day of the year and the grass was below us. Thankful for that and especially thankful for my family & friends. Salud to all my RVTravel compadres.

Stayed in place due to Pandemic hazards, finished building a new winter “old age cabin”. Buy pandemic caused so many stay at home workers, at least half of appliances arrived defective AND no warranty service available in Northwest! We had to fix them ourselves or trade them around…… but we move ever onward and expect to travel again soon.

I found out I had a 44 year old daughter I never knew about. I’ve been across country to visit her 3 times this year which was really great. But because the country is being run so poorly I voted just good.

I found my birth mother but found out she was killed in a hit and run in 2007. My paternal side is of one of two brothers, one died a few years ago and the other completely denies my existance. I am very happy you have a great relationship with your new found daughter. I wish I had that. Enjoy the visits.

Year started off great. But by summer I thought everything couldn’t be better until I moved to NC. Since then everything has gone downhill. Don’t expect 2023 to be much better. Fingers crossed. Been a weird year.

So sorry to hear that, jillie. I hope things improve for you and that you have a much better 2023. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you, but it kinda interferes with my typing. Take care. Hugs. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com

2022 was a good year overall. We got into the RV trips we planned with good weather 95% of the time and, no major issues with the trailer. Lots of good time with the grandkids between trips and, we’ve been pretty healthy all year. Hoping for much of the same in 2023.

2022 was, well, weird. 3/5 stars.

What an interesting survey and comments. All year we complained about price of gas, economy, politics, bad RV construction, long waits for parts, no parking spots, on and on and on…… Hardly any of this was mentioned in the comments as to whether or not it was a good or bad year.. Much appeared to be health set backs for selves or others. Were all of our complaints just those of inconvenience rather than real crisis? It appears that things were not really that bad. . Maybe we are fortunate. Maybe we are thankful and hopeful. Maybe there is a Christmas

Retired so usually great years. But gallbladder decided to part ways with me and had infection issues. Made it through finally and ready to head south soon.

I would rate our 2022 camping season “5”. We had a great season. We were out about six months. We had no problems in any area of camping. Looking forward to 2023. Already have reservations in Forest Service campgrounds.

My husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in December 2021 so 2022 started out as a bummer. Then his back began to hurt and it was diagnosed as spinal stenosis. He can’t walk far without support but he can lift so with many short breaks he was able to get the camper ready and then set up. It wasn’t easy, took 4 1/2 hours one time to pack up, but he loves camping and we were going to AZ come hell or high water. We’re here and missed the Blizzard of 2022.

It began as a great year until health issues bit me on the back side and the doctors dragging their feet to do the surgery that needs to be done to correct the problem.

Would have checked wonderful if my son DIL and our 3 granddaughters (8,11, 14) had not moved from 30 miles away and seeing them once a week to 1500 miles away. They are happy and we are happy for them for all the reasons they moved from CA to TX. Just sad they aren’t closer. Will see them on our way out to Fl and back, Jan and Mar.

I retired September 1, 2022 after 32 yrs in the fire service. It’s been a good year, I pray our economy can bounce back in 2023! Merry Christmas everyone and a blessed 2023.

2022 was an okay year. As far as a camping year, I would have to give it a “5”, but due to my sister dying of leukemia, I would have given it a “0”. I compromised and gave 2022 a “3”.

It was a good year if you ignore the rest of the world. We spent wayyyyyy too much due to prices and unexpected expenses but we did things we never thought we would. Going back to Oct of ’21 we traveled coast to coast by May of ’22. My bucket list of Dodgers spring training (ALL of it!) and the wife’s list of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta both happened! We saw amazing places, met great people, and both traveled and relaxed hard! Now we have the daunting task of planning next year’s travel while living within our shrunken budget. The economy needs to help us out so we can continue to see this huge wonderful country.
