While we lived in AK, probably 30 nights per year during camping season all three years. Moved to Oklahoma for a year- 0 nights. No fun to hang out by a muddy pond in 110 degree heat. Now we've moved to DC, so hopefully we'll get out around 30 again- fuel prices permitting.

Got a new fiver and hope to hit between 30 to 40 . Gas does not mater because I am not driving to work.

65 nights last year. It was our first year with our Arctic Fox, and that thing is awesome. Previously we were pretty stable with 40ish nights a year with our TCs.
We mostly boondock on BLM land at a reservoir about 45 miles away, so it definitely offsets the fuel price.

We are on track for 30-40. We figure at least a 3-4 nighter per month, with a few exceptions.

Define "younger", does 62 count? I suspect not. We try to do about 60 nights and plan on doing more as time goes on. When the kids were little we had a small TT and went maybe 10 nights a year, work and life just kept getting in the way.

Last year was 25 nights. We're late 50's, empty nesters, but work full time. So we try to do a long weekend per month. Fortunately we can do that year round in our climate. Sometimes we will do a week long vacation, sometimes not. I don't have any desire to full time.

With our 2 boys when they were pre teen almost 45 nights per year, now they are 21 & 16 and pushing 80-90 a year. Of course they do not go as much now.
