Camping 52 weekends in a row!

In January I realized that I had camped every weekend since mid March. At that point I set my goal to camp every weekend for at least one year. This past weekend I reached my 52nd weekend in a row camping. Now I wonder how many more...

That it's very cool, wish I could say that. The boys and I could do it, but mom's not much into the cold stuff. We do cold weather camping in tents for Scouts, so the 17Z would be luxury camping
Hopefully we will be making our maiden voyage this weekend, highs are supposed to be in the upper 40's to low 50's. If nothing else, we'll go with camp driveway.

I'd like to camp 52 WEEKS in a row, but then I'd be poor and downtrodden because I'd lose my job. Anybody know where they pay you to camp? La-la Land maybe? Congrats on the milestone, who cuts your grass? Lol!!

Thank you all. I cut the grass, wash the clothes, paint, vacuum, etc during the week so I can go and camp on the weekends. amabee I also camp with the scouts. I hope you can go on a trip this weekend. DH does not camp at all so I go on my own. Occasionally DS or a friend camps with me.

The coldest this winter was -7F. I have camped in colder weather in my PU. -12F (IIRC) is the coldest it has been when I camped.
