    19 in 2013. All in state parks. Have 20 set for 2014 in 2 states. Maybe more if we can work it out.

    I stopped counting at 70 days in the PUP.

    We volunteered this year to build a new bathroom facility at one of our favorite camps, from the ground up. Sometimes we spent successive weeks at camp. [CP]

    Its done now and we can go back to our regular lives.

    If I have not missed any, so far it has been 15 nights during 6 camping trips. One NF in NC, two state parks in NC, one state park in SC and one state park in VA. Have 4 nights reserved this month in a GA state park.

    Of course next year we have those 5 nights in May reserved at Long Key SP in Florida and will probably due a 2 or 3 nighter in an NC park in April with the Eastern North Carolina Campers Club.

    Not that it matters but it should have said 15 nights in 5 trips so far with an additional 4 nights during a 6th trip in three weeks.

    3 County Parks
    1 State Park

    Hoffmaster SP (twice)
    Lake Gogebic SP
    Sleepy Hollow SP
    South Higgins Lake SP

    Had another couple trips planned but the transmission went out on our TV! Hopefully 2014 we will be able to do even more.

    I think about 40 nights? I just got back from a 10 day trip to Collyfornia. I've put the pointy trailer in the shop for at least the rest of the year, unless we have a mild winter.

    I've been to blue grass festivals, a friend and family gathering (in a cow pasture), chainsaw GTGs, and just trips to state parks in WA, OR and CA. Oregon has the bestest! Right now Oregon has winter prices--power and water hookups for $20 or $22 or maybe more or less depending on the location.

    I will visit Hong Kong and India for another mission trip 3 weeks in February!
    Camping: Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP, MT Rushmore… and somewhere in KY or TN for Spring Break!

    More than 60 nights of PUP in camp driveway (Don't laugh! We live in 12 acres of private woods and have a scenic view)
    About a week of overnights (plus additional day trips) to our travel trailer, which was parked on a long-term campground site.
    About 16 nights of PUP in State Parks & Forests in NC, West VA, & PA.
    More PUP camping (& camp driveway!) to come in Nov & Dec, as we prefer cold weather camping.

    We go camping when we have the extra cash. We are hoping to camp more next year. It was hard since we got the pup late in the summer and cash has been tight.

    So far our 2013- 3 trips at 2n/trip

    2 nights in tents
    4 nights with popup

    Total nights camped- 6

    Sad isn't it? [:(]

    We are still hoping to get at least one more weekend trip in before the end of the year. Next year will be our year to really start camping more.

    Because of working away from home since the end of July, only 39 nights camped in 2013, I had to cancel 24 nights reserved and paid for due to the out of town situation.

    Already have 18 booked so far 2014 between PA and OH, and an almost for sure in WV for another 5. 2014 is going to be a good camping year.
