How far will you travel by RV this month (September)?

We’ve got travel on our minds and we’re sure you do too. How could you not when we’ve all been cooped up for so long? Are you planning on traveling by RV this month?

So many of us had to cancel our travel plans for this year. Some of us jumped the gun and cancelled them way back in March, and others of us tried to wait this awful virus out. Now that it’s almost fall (can you believe it?) we’re all getting antsy to get back on the road.

How far will you travel by RV this month? Are you still staying put or are you headed out? Are you heading out but staying close to home, or are you leaving your current state and going adventurin’?

Please tell us in the poll below, and leave a comment too telling us where you’re going. We want to know (can we come?)

This month we will not travel. We do have a few one week trips planned in our home state of Florida over the next six months. We are planning a three -month trip to the Seattle area next summer…God willing. Praying for good health, no fires, no virus, and no severe weather.

Here we go. Leaving for the UP in Michigan mid month. We will be touring much of the area of Northern Wisconsin and Michigan for the first time. Expecting the trip to be a bit over 3000 miles and three weeks.

Fall or Autumn is our favorite season for camping and we’re not gonna let some virus stop us. However where we go is affected since the New England states have basically become prohibited. So we’re headed to Missouri. In the fall campgrounds aren’t nearly as crowded and a whole lot quieter.

Leaving tomorrow morning for an 18 day jaunt to Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP. Am a bit concerned about the smoke from the fires in CA.

Be concerned! Luckily, you’ll have masks. We are camping in southern Oregon and the smoke is significant.

We’ve been traveling to places pretty close to home this year, mostly boondocking.

Our usual summer trip to New England was cancelled, but we will venture a brief (very brief) trip to Virginia’s Eastern Shore so DW can get a beach fix.

Until we get a handle on this virus, we are just staying home.

Heading back to GA from OR after a 3 1/2 month trip in mid-September, so we’ll go well over 2000 miles.

Sadly, nowhere. We were suppose to be gone for 2 weeks in the California Redwoods in Mendocino/Humboldt counties. Been going every year for the last 15 or so. RV park we stay at has a 9 hole golf course & we play most every day. However, due to COVID-19 the individual charged with the upkeep of the golf course left. So course is in disrepair. May try October. BTW, should just be returning from what was to be a 5 week trip to the Indy500 & some fishing. Turned into a 2 week trip of about 1500 miles. Hoping our planned 2 month trip to Florida end of January works out.

Idea for a future survey. Snowbirds are you going to keep your winter reservations? We have 60 days to keep or cancel our reservation. We are 50/50 right now to keep ours. If we cancel soon we just lose our spot of 8 years. Right now the thought is …. if you can’t enjoy yourselves at restaurants, shopping, visiting friend we can just stay home.

Just now getting out. Wife badly sprained ankle several weeks ago so no travel until now. Today heading into the Blue Mountains. Taking new electric bikes.

We are full-timers who have spent the summer workamping in Garibaldi, OR. On the day after Labor Day we will begin our trek to Mission, TX. As Winter Texans, we will be workamping at Bentsen Palm VillageRV Resort. We visit friends, and family, and sights along the way, taking our time.

In mid September, we’ll leave for the U.P. of Michigan for 2 weeks. Then visit sites in the rest of Michigan, with a final stay at Hocking Hills S.P. in Ohio. Will return to our home in Kentucky. On the road for about a month. Can’t wait!

We’re snowbirds. So unless they predict exceptional cold, we are at the stick house till late October.

Still thinking about one last trip for the year. One park is 26 miles and full hookup and the other is a state park 42 miles with Electric only. What ever we decide, it will be two weeks and then the coach goes in the barn for its winter hibernation.

We do Agility with our dogs (relatively new to it) & will travel from the western edge of Montana to Butte. At the end of the month we’ll celebrate our anniversary by going a while 25 miles to a USFS campground we like, on a river confluence.

Mmmm! Pork Chop Johns, Joe’s Pastys, Pekin for noodles,Lydia’s for steak and chicken, all surrounded by 10,000 mountains and a peek at the eyesore open pit mine to see how much the fluid level has changed. Plus one of the nicest and most picturesque cities left in America. Don’t forget 3,000 miles!!! of mining tunnels under the city.

Finishing up our 3rd month here in Yellowstone NP and heading out to Rapid City, SD and then Sidney, MT. From there, heading to spend Christmas with the kids and grandkids in TN. This is our 7th year of full time and we are not slowing down anytime soon! This virus is not controlling our lives! Food for thought!

Headed out(9/11) to Julian, CA, KQ Ranch CG. We were actually there in March and had just returned two days before the state of Cali was put on lockdown. We had reservations cancelled, refunds sent back to us including reservations fee(nice) with CG’s in Cali shutting down. Our grandson who has been RV’ing with us since he was three had been bugging us about when we were going camping again, so now he’s happy.

Our 6th and last RV trip this year will be a 4 day stay at Wilderness SP on Lake Michigan near Mackinaw City. It’s not far from home, about 100 miles but it will be the first park we’ve ever stayed at twice in our travels since we began camping a little over a year ago. All of our short trips this year have been practice for our next trip, a 9 week trip to AZ from MI next January through March.
