I just booked our site for a weekend in June and sent of confirmation for the last two weeks in July. Closer to home sounds like the plan for this summer. I am working on a couple projects at work, and hard to get extra time off. I do not want to waste my time driving. The June trip is 1.5 hours away, The July trip is 3.5 hours.
Found a nice campground last fall, 40 minutes from home. The in-laws have a boat on the lake another 20 minutes down the road. We will probably get out there a couple times.
First trip is next weekend, close to home. Following weekend is a different campground, also close to home.
Second week in June is Williamsburg to do Busch Gardens and visit family.
Late in June is my daughter's 3rd birthday party at a local campground. We were planning of camping the weekend, but now I'm thinking of just leaving the camper for the week. It's not far from home, and my kids would love spending our days there after I get done work.
July is a trip to the Catskills.
December is the big one. Over a week on a surprise trip to Disney World! We'll tell them that we're going camping, but we're not going to tell them about Disney. I'm going to videotape their reactions in the truck as we're driving and they start noticing the signs.
We'll have a bunch of local weekend trips thrown in there too. We'll probably go up to Lancaster sometime in the spring. The kids love Strausburg Railroad and Cherry Crest Farm.
Next weekend we are going to Thompson's Lake, it's a NYS park, very basic, but close to home. It's our 22nd anniversary. Hoping the weather gets a little warmer. This weekend we have freeze warnings. But suppose to be in the 60's by Monday. After that my husband wants to bring it up early to the family camp in the Adirondacks, which will allow us to spend weekends up there until my daughter is out of school in mid June. Looking at going to Wells beach, Ma or North Carolina for a week vaction in August. Hoping next weekend while at Thompson's lake with no electric, that we will have some down time to figure out a plan for the rest of the summer.
We spent last weekend in Wells, Maine and will be there again next weekend. I think this year we will stay close to home. Weekends at the beach and maybe even a two week stint there. Might go to the White Mountains in the fall. Depends on work schedules.
We did a weekend trip to Stone Mountain State Park (NC) in March and then went for a week to Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach, SC in April. Decided to leave our camper there in storage for the summer. Went back for a weekend last weekend. Have another weekend in June and and then another week in July. We will probably do another weekend in August, September and October. Will decide around August/September if we want to leave it in storage down there for the winter or try to make a fall trip to the mountains a weekend or two before winterizing. Might just do the fall camping in a tent. That would be fun.
Got a little trip a couple hours north of here in the hill country Memorial weekend then a week out to the coast on the first of July. We are also planning a week out in August but I don't know where yet.
