Similar here. I do a lot of weekend trips in the late fall, winter, and early spring, but come late spring, it starts to get muggy and hot around here. Some folks are cold intolerant, well i'm definitely humid hot intolerant (thanks Scottish Highlander and Germanic genes).
So then my weekends become more about going to the beach, specifically more so car camping at a state park near the beach. However, i have an often social wife, so i tend to get pulled into other things at times.
I would love to do a thru hike in the US, as the only longer hike i've done is the Camino in Spain, which while i really liked aspects of it, wish it had more wilderness parts, and less road walking (which can really kill your feet besides being ugly).
But how could i possibly take off that time unless i wanted to get divorced and be homeless and broke for awhile. I'm broke enough as it is, and often just barely get bills paid off, with an occasional little extra sometimes. Ironically, my wife who is a teacher and who makes more money than me, could do a thru hike if she really wanted to, or at least a good portion of one. We did the Camino together but that was in large part because she is semi obsessed with Spain and obsessed with long distance traveling (especially to other countries). Personally i would prefer more time out in more true wilderness.
