Every three months we make a trip from central NY, a bit west of Syracuse, to Buffalo. As the seasons change, we get a kick out of watching the rise and fall in the number of campers we count on I-90 during the trip. Today we made a trip up to that area that amounted to about 225 miles, round trip. We counted 279 campers on the road, our highest count that we recall.(It goes to almost zero in February and March.) Of the 279, only 4 were TCs, our second highest TC count ever.

Does anyone else do the same thing? What kind of numbers do you see?

I don't count campers per se.  But I've observed that the number of RV's and trailer boats on the road greatly diminished after 2008.  Their numbers reflect the general health of the economy.  And yes, those numbers are also up in the Pacific Northwest.  There were so many truck campers on the highway on July 4th weekend that it looked like a TC rally.

Here in the west and specifically the northwest there are a lot of truck campers. They are not unusual at all to see in my nexk of the woods. I still look at them as we go by but that is to see if it is anyone we have met through the years.

love everyday like you won the lotto.

We spent a couple days in Dawson City, YT.  In the 80-site campground we stayed in, there were 20 TC's one night.
