I have to admit I let my TPMS tell me I'm low on air.

I usually check the tire pressure before a long trip.

Exactly, greydog, with the drop in temps and a decent road trip for Thanksgiving just a few hours away I just inflated my tires to optimum tire pressure last night.

Probably not as often as I should. I do usually check it at the beginning of each season and before a long trip.
