My wife and I travel with our two dogs. Marley, a Parsons Jack Russel Terrier, and Winne, a Carin Terrier. Both females.
Most trips we camp with our close friends, and their 2 children.

Traveling with

We do two types of traveling. We take short duration trips, camping with friends on many weekends. For long duration traveling cross country we travel alone, never in caravans or with friends, prefering to go at our own lazy pace, it took us 18 weeks to reach Florida on our first trip from NH.

I travel with my rescued greyhound, "KD", and my 82 year old mom. Mom and I do the long trips solo, "totally solo".

When doing local camping I have a best friend with a 1995 T1950, so then there are 2 Sunlines camping together.

When mom no longer camps, it will then just be me & KD

Kitty.

We travel with Pepper. We took our trip to Maine with our friends from Maryland that have a 1950, and we meet them several times each year for a weekend. We also have local friends that we are going with for the first time this Oct. They have a 2553.

Leo and I travel together....we do camp with friends, depending on who is going where ~ when!

Memorial Day - we camp with 100 of our oldest & dearest friends.

During the summer, usually with two or three couples/families.

"Vacation" is usually with DD's and families!.

When we want "us time" then of course it is just the two of us!

My wife (mdfiregal), 8 yr.old daughter (Becky), 7 year old son (Ray), and Dogs Dudley (English Bulldog), Lulu (Boxer, aka Lucy), and Whitey (Bichon Frise). Also, 80 yr.old Mother-in-law on most trips. Until two weeks ago, our zoo included a 20 something Yorkie named Jack, but unfortunately he passed away shortly after returning from our last camping trip.

Occasionally, we work in a trip with the brother-in-law and his family and thier Volvo tractor/40' Fiver combo.

My wife and I travel with our Lab, Bella, and our daughter's Shiba Inu, Brody. On a good weekend, our daughters (ages 25 and 26) join us. On a really good weekend, my best friend from high school and his family join us (that makes a group of 10).

Just the two of us, Cindy and I and our two dogs. One old cuss of a Beagle and one young strapping Pit Bull who is the friendliest dog you've ever met

I wish we had friends who owned a camper and could travel in a pack, but we have yet to meet anyone who is willing to go at our pace

Well. it is actually a 38' Cedar Creek that is 13'6" at the top of the a/c unit. He originally pulled it with an F-350 Power Stroke, but after blowing a softball sized hole in the oil pan coming out of New England he bought the single axle Volvo tractor with a sleeper cab. Pulled the bed out of the sleeper and installed three air ride seats for the kids and put a tow body on the back. It is a very nice, albeit HUGE rig.

But, I bet he never suffers from "tow vehicle envy"!!!!!!!!!!

I camp and travel two ways...
1) solo, with the two english cocker spaniels (Casey and Madison). Due to some lower back problems in the last two months that seem to get aggravated when I handle the Sunspot (operating the jack, getting in and out to check the hitch when backing up, etc.), I've done all of my camping to date in the SunSpot's parking location, my sister's significant other's back field. It's primitive, but it's better than not being able to camp at all.

2) I travel with friends to dog shows five or six times a year. It's between three and fifteen other people, and we've brought with us as many as 20 dogs. When we camp, the dogs sleep in a tent outside. We party, we camp, and now and then we even go up to the rings to show a dog.
We're going in two weeks (end of Sept.) to the Finger Lakes Wine Country Circuit (Sampson State Park). In fact, I'm taking a break from checking the camping box right now. We'll be in a 28 ft. rental trailer with a slide out. We used to rent others' motorhomes, and I'd drive them to the site, until I found Roughing it Smoothly trailer rentals in Camden NY. They're a family business that rents their fully outfitted travel trailers and DELIVERS them in Central NY for between $65 and $75/night. We can't get a hotel room for that.

All we need to bring is food, our personal kitchen favorite tools, the dog stuff and our favorite beverages. We've been doing it at the Sampson circuit for 20 years--the Women's Dog Encampment. If husbands and kids want to come, they have to sleep outside in the tent (and it helps if they bring a cheesecake or offer to make us breakfast... ) The dog show includes conformation (breed), obedience, agility, and rally, and although nobody shows in everything, all of us show in at least one venue, sometimes two or three. So it can be really busy...or really relaxing...depending on which dogs we're showing.

For winter dog shows, the same group travels together. We try to carpool or caravan, and we all book the same or adjacent hotels. We usually meet up at the show with other friends, some from other central NY towns and others we only see when we're in that part of the country. We 'camp' at the show sites--coolers, crockpots, shade canopies, everything we'd use camping. Some people do motorhome to the shows, but we usually do hotels and vehicles. To save money we often cook and eat meals together in the hotel rooms at night--we nearly always have a table or canopy set up at the show site with food to eat throughout the day.

I travel to shows solo, too, but being in a group (even loosely connected) can really help out. Last year at the Springfield circuit I brought a friend who's van died the day before we were all supposed to leave. On the way home, another friend's transmission died in the middle of the Mass Pike at rush hour. We cell-phoned the distress call and arranged on the fly to pick them up, along with the dogs, and get everyone home safely in various other vehicles while her Explorer was towed to a local shop.

It is me, my wife Kathy, and our poma-poo Zoe and we camp with a varied group that we call the "Griswold Camping Club" after a character in the movie National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. The exact make up of the club varies from trip to trip depending on who is available. We are the old geezers in the club, I am almost 60 and Kathy is....well, never mind. Most of the others are in their 40s with school aged children and the school activities have cut into the number of camping trips of late. Occasionally we have taken longer trips on our own (usually to Disney World) and are then joined by our grown son Matt (25). Those trips are a lot of fun.
