    New here, and glad to have found y'all! The guy we bought from actually suggested y'all to us, and I'm glad he mentioned it because I already have many questions to ask. I'm a wife and a mama to 4 awesome kids (3 here on Earthand 1 beautiful girl waiting on us in Heaven). I've never used a popup before so I'm a newbie, but my husband has some experience from when he was a kid.

    We recently bought a '98 Rockwood Freedom, pretty much on a whim! It's campable now, but we plan to do a decent amount of work.

    Our oldest (just turned 4) said he wants to keep it forever, so I know the whole family is ready to start traveling asap!

    We are 1/2 mile from the Al line, closest town in Al is Faydette, and about 17 miles S /W of Dothan closest in Fl is Graceville. Look N of Bonifay (abt. 12 mi.) on FL 173 and is Al 49

    We got off easy, it turned before getting to so we got a piece of it tho. no power for 9 days, but Faydette had Gas for the generators, (he had a tanker brought in and a generator ran the pumps) had the TT for hot showers, bathroom and cooking etc. Luckily we have a Free flowing well and had plenty of water I lost one whole horse stall, and a goat stall plus chicken pen roof needs some work, several of the neighbors had trees down, my hunting area is a mess but over all we did great and many others were not so lucky Mariana got hit really hard.
