    I think a rebuild is in order.

    My PUP is showing her age and the effects of the humid southern climate. I already had to replace a section of the floor and now another spot is getting pretty soft. I also have several wall sections that have come loose from the floor & I suspect that rot is part of the culprit. The...

    Popup Portal Flag

    I ordered my Popup Portal Flag last week and am anxious to get it before our next trip (July). Thanks Popup Portal for offering this for us. I'm hoping it will be a good conversation starter and point more locals to the portal.

    Scary Thought - - -

    It's actually quite funny, but my DW and I were walking around the campground loop this weekend looking at all of the setups and she actually was talking about how it may be nice to have a Hybrid or other non-popup.

    Louisiana State Park Camping Reservations

    I hit ReserveAmerica earlier this week to see if any of our nearby campgrounds had any open sites for the weekend. At first, I said "Wow" because there was not a single LA State Park returned in the search. I then went to the LA State Parks website ( ) and...

    Tow Vehicle - Good & Bad News

    Another good thing about traveling with the PUP

    Guess you could call this a SPUT ("Simple" Pop-Up Trick). [:D] We were at Gulf Shores this past weekend and were packing up to head home. Got the PUP all packed up and closed down and was going to hook up the TV to head home. "Oh No!! [:(]" the battery was dead on the Expedition (TV). No...
