    As a new camper I am happy to join the community. My family and I are looking forward with great anticipation to our first trip in our new pop up trailer. My kids 5 & 8 will enjoy the experience and my DW has never camped in her life being raised as a city girl. So it will be an experience no doubt. In a previous life I have had a couple of Pups, a Coleman and a Jayco. The Coleman was my first (no AC or heater). But it was upstate PA and I didn't think that AC or heat would be necessary. I learned and the Jayco we had in SC had both. This new unit is a Flagstaff 206 ESP with both and a 3 way refrigerator. Our first trip is planned for May 11 close to home (about 45 minutes away) so we can get our sea legs with this camper. My TV is a Mercedes GLK. This is my first camper with elec. brakes so I need some time behind the wheel to learn to drive this one. Our first trip is to a local KOA, so I expect no surprises, and it will let me exercise the camper systems to get comfortable with their set up and functions. Thanks again for this great community. Ken

    Thanks for the greeting from CT. I lived in Groton years ago. The wife worked at the Warfare Lab there. I was building the Millstone Nuclear PP back then. I was a Pup myself.

    I worked at the Savannah River Site and retired from there back in 2005. I really like SC and hope to be back there hunting this fall. SC is a great place. Thanks for the greeting.

    Thanks for the greeting to board. I have never lived in WV but have passed through a couple of times. Seems you are going either up or down there. Thanks again for the saying hello. Happy Easter.
