DH thinks Im nuts,

I just paid for the reservations for our camping trips next summer. I figure, we had the money to do it now, and if its already paid for there is no reason to not go. Also, for the 2 campgrounds we paid for are less than a 1/4 -1/2 tank of gas away from where we live. Would you do this? Am I nuts for planning this far ahead? BTW we both have flexible schedules so thats not a problem.

  • I used to do that too when I was still single. I booked my summer vacation already in December. It's so nice when you have something to look forward to through the winter... lol

  • Thanks for answerikng ladies, I also make lots of lists, like a PP said. Some I never see again, lol. But I feel like if I know that we have already paid for these vacations (total about 4 weekends then one total week in August, it just makes me feel better because there is no reason for us (him, lol) to want to bail on it.

  • Sounds like you are a good planner. You have the money and the flexibility, like you said. I know its weird to make reservations for camping but really you have to on specific holiday weekends. We found that out the hard way.
