How far do you travel

How far are you coming from? Do you drive an RV, pull a TT or tent camp? Just curious!

1) We "camp" at the cabins.
2) We travel approx 8-miles, as the crow flies.
3) It is a grueling journey with the traffic, but one manages.

We come from outside St Louis. 1003 miles from door to Ft entrance.

Pull a 5th wheel. Have a 31 ft bunk house and a 44 ft toy hauler (for the race team). Selling the bunk house, so it will be the "big" one for the next trip.

Racing around the country until our next visit to WDW.

Wisconsin, pulling a 40' Fifth Wheel. 1326 miles, door to door!! However, we are making an unusual visit in late July/August, and have decided to rent an RV. Hope we are happy with our decision. 37 days, and so excited. Also, after last winter, we will not complain about the heat, we will not complain..........

Have a great trip.

We pull a 38' 5th wheel 1116 miles from Cedar Creek, Texas. Traveling the interstate system and divided highways makes for a nice ride to the Fort.
But darn it sure seems like a much longer ride home.
