    ya know, i even had that conversation with the Mrs, about a mini motor home. but being road weary got to me, and i don't even like driving to the mail box, 75 feet from my house!.

    i like the conveniences of home. when you pack up a motor home, you are packing up your house....too much work.

    Yeah, even going camping in a tent for a couple days is a big hassle because all the crap you gotta bring including the 5 gal bucket, lol. And, who like sleeping in a tent with a cpap machine. :confused:

    i made a very good salary working dedicated....5 nights a week, or some jobs 6 nights.

    short hours, compared to long haul, or even regional.

    had plenty of time for that "honey do list"

    hated that part of being home more................

    Although I always loved to camp, at my age those days of laying on the ground in a tent are way behind me. Even if I used a good air mattress, there still is the part where I have to get back up to the standing position again.:)

    I know right? That ground is so far away.
    And the reverse trip is so much further.

    I try to get at least one, hard core backpacking trip in with my sons every year. Other than that, it's the cushy confines of the camper that we go to. I don't have to worry about any rocks in my back.
