How Many Outings a Year?

Just for fun, how many outings a year do you make with your Airstream?
Just the number. If you are full-time, just say "FT".

We are 10.

It varies from year to year. In general we try to take 1-2 longer trips each year, probably 6-8 shorter trips, and then end up with some trips that we don't really plan ourselves but where the trailer is a convenience.

Probably will be somewhat fewer this year as I anticipate using the pickup camper for some of the shorter trips.

I'm probably ten 2-3 day weekends (seems like more) and three 4 or 5 night trips a year.

We usually do two 9 or 10 week trips each year, one out west and one to New England. We also do at least a half dozen shorter trips within the southeast. Over the last 7 years, we have been averaging 45% of our time in the Airstream/truck camper.

Probably 6-8 times a year. Mostly weekend trips but one or two, week long trips a year. I need a smaller yard and a brick house to take more trips than that.

We're in that process of conversion now. We'll be moved by June 1 and then can do pretty much unlimited travel without worry about yards, stand alone house, and all that goes with that. Can't wait.

160 or so nights a year. Not that many outings. 3 months in fl, a caravan, and a few weekend rallies.
