Any other Dummies out there like me?

Why am I out here in the driveway sitting in my TT reading....watching a 24" tv with digital channels? 50 degree's outside and rainy Sunday afternoon. And playing on my phone? Got a good cup of coffee. An infrared heater set at 70 enjoying the peace and quiet...even though I live in town. Yes we are brand new campers...and loving every minute of it. Just sad our local campground is closed for the season already. We are eagerly planning all kinds of new adventures for next season. And slowly accumulating necessary and some unnecessary items throughout the winter season. Right now seems to be a good time to collect on some great end of season clearance items. We saved $130 yesterday on a surge protector and some leveling blocks. My wife of almost 41 years myself and our 2 beagles Suzie 3 & 1/2 and Lucy 1 &1/2 are thouroughly enjoying every aspect of it....so far anyway.

I'm guilty also. We came home from our boondocking spot early this morning. My wife is in the house taking a nap, the kids are at their grandparents, and I'm sitting under the awning in our driveway eating Doritos and drinking a glass of iced tea.

RVing is a way of life and a state of mind. Welcome to the lifestyle.

I regularly sneak out and take a nap in mine. No phones tvs or dogs barking, nice and quiet.

I regularly "camp" at my in-laws lakehouse in the driveway. The rest of the family only goes into the trailer to sleep, but I slip away and spend time there pretty much every day. Sadly I don't store my trailer at my house or I'm sure I'd do the same thing at home too.

We keep our unit set up next to the driveway. I use the dinette for doing office work and have been known to take a nap or two out there as well. Had to winterize today so will have to close it up in the next few weeks.

Count me in too. I have full hookup at the house and that's where I plan out my trips. I can lay my maps and papers out on the table along with my paperweight ( a Jack & Ginger) or two and when the ice melts I go back in the house.

We keep ours stored beside the house so I spend time in it whenever I can. I agree with others that it's a great place to sneak a nap in from time to time as well. Unfortunately it's now covered for the winter but every once in awhile I unzip the side panel and spend a little time inside under the guise of "checking on things..."
