The fall is our camping season though, we go at least once a month September through January, and even into February sometimes. The parks are less crowded and weather is nicer (cooler). I expect we'll double that number pretty easily before the year is out. Since our son isn't in school yet, we can still make some pretty good trips in the fall. Especially with over a week out in November. I'm really excited about that one, it'll be our first long trip with the RV!
Living in Pennsylvania our camping season is usually April through October (that is when the campgrounds are open) but sometimes the state parks are open later in the year although they cannot guarantee water, etc.

We have done three trips for a total of 19 days. We pull our FW and boat up to Grand Teton National Park and go fishing and sightseeing then we come home. Only about three hours each way but a great time.

Super jealous! Our trip to Grand Teton would take 2 days minimum drive time. And that's two HARD days of serious, mission-driven travel, not just relaxing and poking along.

We do have the beach though! We can leave work at noon on a Friday and be sipping pre-dinner drinks on a beautiful Gulf Coast beach!

Don't get me wrong, TX is great for camping, but sometimes I hear the irresistible call of the mountains, and my heart longs ...

4 trips with 11 nights, wished it was more but our busy schedule hasn't allowed it.

Try: Finish mower down for 3 weeks (finally back online Monday), F350 needs exhaust work, too much crap in the barn: consignment auction in Sept, donor car for project car full of hornets, 1/2 the drainage ditches have to be re-dug, section of dry-laid-stone retaining wall needs repair, the back 10 acres has to be brush-hogged in 3 phases, two weeks apart to avoid starving the honeybees, re-grade 1/2 mile private road, keep up with the finish mowing, 70,000 mile service on my daily driver, pay attention to SWMBO, check on my 83 year-old parents, work full time 50 miles from home, dump the cat litter in the field beyond the barn, etc., ad nausium...

I love my life!

Leaving all that behind is both a relief and a self-imposed guilt trip. Apply sparingly.

Actually, the 4-day this weekend trip may occur in an abbreviated form. We're looking at going up to the Lumberman's Festival in Boonville, NY as an extended day trip instead of the whole weekend.
