How often do you operate your HF radio in campgrounds?

When I have been seasonal for several years I operated almost every week or weekend we spent there.  Now that we have been mobile more I haven't operated so much.  I am planning on being more active on the road.  I have used my Outbacker OB-8 with the Outpost base most of the time.  There have been a number of radios but I will be using my Yaesu FT-890 or Alinco DX70-T for mobile operation.  Looking forward to many contacts this Spring through Fall.  Ed

I spend most of the summer in Colorado and was on the air most every day. Used a 31' vertical or a 60' long wire in the trees.
Don't have a mobile rig but use a TS-590 in the 5er.

I use a MFJ-1788 and mount it on my rear ladder. I work JT65/JT9 almost daily. I also have a couple daily nets I check into. Don't do mobile HF, just 2m in the truck.
