Nights in Trailer 2015

Since picking up our trailer July 2nd we have camped locally (Chase, Ashcroft, Merritt) for 18 nights and logged 1000km. Semi-retired; Jim back to VIA RAIL to provide vacation relief.

84 nights. I've cut my trip to the Alaska & West short and am back in Oswego, NY. I hope to get more trailer time between now & the end of the year.

This sounds great this time of year, post your travels in a new thread.

To date in 2015 - 85 nights, 6,702 miles.
We're currently in the midst of another adventure and expect to add 73 more nights and 5,600 more miles to that total before we get back home.
If all goes as planned, the final numbers for 2015 will be 158 nights and 12,302 miles.
Yes, we are retired.

Toto has traveled 4095 miles so far this year over 43 nights. More to come! Sooz is retired, I'm working part-time (including during our trips) and Tyler and Wally continue their lifelong retirement. Shoot, I just realize it's time to adjust the brakes again.

We have spent 185 nights in our 19 since May of 2012. This year we have spent 37 of those nights on a trip to Arizona and short local trips. The trailer is now winterized and stored. We will miss it but it will have the company of it's siblings at ETI. We will be overseas for the next 3 months so no more camping nights this year.

Jon. Since you are back home early, will we see you at the Niagara Wine Escape?

~50 or so.... Trip down to Palm Springs/Laughlin/Vegas, stopped and soaked in a few hot springs on the way down. Back down to Boise for a conference, then the rest all work related, twice to McMurray, north of Slave Lake around Loon River. One tire wearing so I had an alignment done. Hit a bump or something that caused the fridge door to pop open, so fixed the hinge, all minor. Will be doing a few mods this fall.
