im bringing this back up after Patti and i talked about this we still gave up our year round site but we thought about it and with all the money we have tide up in camper truck and everything else we use for camping why should we cut back on camping ???
a 300 mile round trip 2 years ago cost us $45.00 in gas this year with fuel cost going to be say $4.00 a gallon it will cost us $60.00 is that $15.00 worth letting thousands of dollars worth of equipment sit ??
NO not to us we are going to enjoy every weekend we can go camping i would rather cut back on going out to dinner a couple times a month and have the chance to sit by a campfire with my DW so i say LETS GO CAMPING !!!
You have a magic pickup truck 300 mile round trip with the truck costs me around $136 @ $4.00 a gallon/9 mpg.
Yer math doesn't seem to add up, either that GMC gets 20 mpg towing or yer sleeping in your truck cap and empty yer GMC is getting 20mpg. $60/300 miles @ $4.00 a gallon = 15 gallons of gas/20mpg.
