We went out West in 2010 for 21 days and it was awesome! But when we (DW and I) got back home it was like a drug had worn off and we were having camping withdrawls!
Last week we camped 5 nights in the 100+ temps we had here in NC, but we had a great time. And this week we are like zombies looking for our next fix. We want to camp all the time, but we just aren't sure how to make it happen.
So, does anyone else have camping withdrawls when they get back to the 9-5 work week? (or 9-9)

I can relate... When I sleep in the camper I forget all of my work items and sleep like a baby..

Yep! But in 1 year, 8 months & 19 days we'll have a cure for that. It's called RETIREMENT!!! FOR THE LAST TIME!!!

Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!

If you name your TT and TV, you might have a camping problem.

Yes, getting back to real life sucks!!! I would imagine though, as a full timer, the vacation type fun would wear off eventually. If you didn't have a lot of money to travel, it wouldn't be like a nice relaxing vacation anymore.

I have about 20 more years before I get to do that dance! I'm hoping to be a mobile installation tech so we can work from the camper if needed.

We have the same problem. The solution is to start planning the next camping trip as soon as you get home.
It's great that you are having such a good time.

I have the same problem, and short of beating my brain out can not find a way to fulltime as my wife or I will have no retirement. I have spent the last year researching and looking for a way to make it doable and have failed. If any RICH campers need a tagalong let me know LOL will

YES!!!!!!! Especially my SO. He gets REALLY down in the dumps when we get back home. Probably because he doesn't like his job as much as I do so it hits him ten times harder when reality sets in and we are back home again.

My therapy is to start planning our next excursion, and it also helps to have small projects associated with fixin-up the 5er.
