CONGRATULATIONS!, and welcome to The Forum!

I've been full-timing for about 2-1/2 years, now, and just love the lifestyle. I spend April through mid-November hosting in State Park campgrounds in Michigan, then head to The Texas Hill Country for the winter months. It's just about as perfect a life as one could ask for! But, I learned my first year that you can burn up a lot of gas & cash driving all over Michigan, pulling your trailer to a different campground every two weeks. (Max. stay at a Michigan State Park campground is 15 days.) Last year, I was fortunate enough to book hosting gigs for the entire season, and all of them were within about a 75 miles of each other (with only one exception). That helped a lot! This upcoming season, I've arranged to spend the entire season at only 2 state parks that are within 30 miles of each other. Since my campsite and hook-ups will be free and my towing will be minimal, I should be able to stay busy, save some $, and save considerable wear & tear on my TV/RV combo. I can hardly wait!

What will you folks do to keep yourselves busy? Have you had a chance to make any summer/winter plans? We'd love to hear about them. Please share!

Again, congratulations on joining our community. Best of luck, and enjoy the life!

Why would you leave Southern Utah? But please do not talk about your favorite places to camp down there. Some of us still enjoy the quiet places.
