We do alot of camping within a few hours drive of our home. But we also do alot that is quite a distance away. This year so far we have 2 trips that will probably be at least 10 days another that will be 2 weeks and another that will be 6 to 8 weeks.

What's a destionation? Most of the time we end up at least 24-48 hours away, but we rarely have a destination in mind when we leave the house.

On one trip we went to visit my mom for the weekend, about 180 miles away and wound up in California several days later.....

Default how far on a trip

We try to never drive more than eight hours in a day .
But our trips last many many days.
sometimes months.
Depends on the weather.
That is the beauty of being retired.
No more marching to anybody elses tune.

Earth is the only planet with chocolate???

Then I better get eating , sounds like there will not be anymore wherever I am destined to go.

I use the "B" for "traveling" much more than "camping".

Haven't really done any full trips yet, just stuff to get the feel of the van, but plan to do more than 3-4 hours per day. We're in the Niagara region and plan to do the northeast US and eastern Canada first, then west to who knows where. So I'd guess more than 4 hours per.

We make two or three trips every year between Minneapolis and Indianapolis of a distance of 650 miles. We used to always drive it non-stop 11 hours. Now that we have the B we have slowed down and usually camp overnight coming and going. We did the same with Midland, MI in the past a 13 hour trip the short way through Chicago. Now we do the overnights and always go through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The B you might say allows you to stop and smell the flowers.

Default Re: Distance driven for majority of your trips

The majority of our trips have been either 2-3 hours to the Adirondacks or 4-5 hours to Philadelphia to visit my family. We have driven cross country to California from NY and we are driving to Mesa, Arizona in February. We (DW and I) drove from NY to Monterey, Ca. in four days last fall.

Most of the time we go for a week or more, sometimes when it is cooler weather, we go for just a weekend. No matter how long we go away for, we always enjoy the "view".
