Will you travel more in the next year than the last year?

16

Do you plan to travel more or less in the next 12 months than you did in the past 12 months? Or will you travel about the same?

We’re talking about time you’ll actually spend in your RV, not the miles you travel.

It may take a moment for the poll to load so please stand by.

  1. I’m full time. Might put on a few extra miles and side trips, but spend winters as Winter Texan and summers in WI as camp nurse during its season, and MN the rest of the time.

  2. We are on a 10 week trip right now. The trip is covering the top two rows of states and the bottom two rows of Canada.

  3. I always want to travel more than last year, but there are a lot of things that affect my life, that I just have to take things as they come, the same as the way we travel.

  4. My husband and I workamped every summer to get out of the heat of Arizona. We loved workamping. My husband died from pancreatic cancer at the end of Oct. so for me I won’t be going in the rv this year. I also have cancer so doctor appts. will take up my time. I am so sad. We both loved working in campgrounds, it was our dream. My husband was only 65 but we got to fulfill our dream for a few years.

    • We are so sorry about your husband, Diana, and about your diagnosis. But we’re glad to hear that you two were able to fulfill your dreams for awhile, anyway. Good luck with your treatments. We hope you can do more RVing in the future. Take care. —Diane at RVtravel.com

    • I am so sorry for your husband’s passing and that huge loss and then your own cancer to deal with. Sending prayers and hugs to you, Diana Houck.

    • I’m so sorry to hear of your loss and of your own struggles. I hope you can get to the point of traveling again. Perhaps after you get your treatments routine, you can find a companion to travel with you and return home as needed for doctor visits. It might help you get well sooner, and you’d certainly have more joy!

  5. Last year was the “YEAR OF GRANDPAW’S GREAT ADVENTURE”, eight weeks and thirty eight states. So this tear will be much less in RV travel and more in paying off the credit cards. We will still take several weekend type trips but not like last year.

  6. Being Northwest natives, we don’t mind the winter months and enjoy a little snow and the rain that keeps everything green. We follow the snowbirds south every other year. This is our winter to give the RV a rest and stay home to enjoy the activities and holidays with family and local friends.

  7. Living in the PacNW (the land of coastal drizzle and perpetual solar deficiency) does have one advantage. In this mild climate we can use our truck camper year-around. So we beat the WA state parks 9-month in advance reservation quagmire and budget busting fee increases by being OLD folks. That is, we qualify for the $75 WA Parks Senior Off-Season Pass. So from October thru April, we enjoy “free” camping (but pay a $8 reservation fee and daily $10 for hookups). We’re planning to see lots more winter storms from our camper in 2020!

    • Ha ha, Graybyrd! I’ve lived in the Pacific NW for almost 73 years and have never heard the term “perpetual solar deficiency.” Thanks for the updated description! 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

  8. Travel has become much more expensive than when we started full time in 2010. I used to be able to find overnight spots for $20 or less, now I really have to search and be creative to find sites under $40. Having a big 50 amp rig doesn’t help. May get a smaller 30 amp unit.

    • We are completing a 2 month RV adventure in New Zealand. Oh how I wish the USA would take lessons from New Zealand on how to promote camping. Oh how I wish it were so. APPS to find Freedom Camping (Boonndocking), other campgrounds color coded by price, user comments on each location, dump stations, LPG refill, point and click to directions to the location an d much more.
