    Hello everyone!
    My name is Jamie and my husband and I just started camping last year. We have a tiny little pop up for now, but hope to move to a fifth wheel next year (a gal can dream!).

    We stay more locally, but in PA that gives us PA, NJ, NY, DE, MD - lots of options - and are taking long weekends.

    I am always looking for ideas of how to travel in a small pop up; storing food, keeping the cheese from getting weird and melty and sticky in the cooler, staying somewhat tidy in the camper, etc. We are also hoping to make some camping buddies who we can coordinate with. We always meet people when we are camping, but usually are alone around the campfire. That's nice, but having a group to laugh with is always better!

    Looking forward to making connections on this group!

    Welcome from northern Virginia. I used to joke my summer home was in PA. I took the popup all over PA in the summer it’s such a beautiful state.

    Welcome aboard from Jax,FL and a former PA resident. What part of PA do you call home? If you're looking for others to meet up with it would help if we know your home area. As far as a 5th Wheel, everyone has their dream camper and so good luck but like many of us here you might get stuck and fall in love with your PUP. We started out in a 93 Coleman with no A/C, Heat, Stove or Awning. Now we have a 2012 Clipper with 2 Heated King Beds, A/C, Heat, Fridge, Bathroom combo and even a Power Lift for the roof. The list of the many other conveniences goes on and on and are too numerous to list here but the bottom line is that we LOVE PUP's. Best of luck and enjoy.

    It is beautiful, but so is Virginia! I have a friend outside of Richmond and have spent a little time down there.

    Hello! We are in the Allentown area, so about an hour north of Philly. There are tons of campgrounds right here, in our back yard. It is difficult to know we are making a good choice and appreciate any feedback or suggestions!

    Hi Jamie. Welcome to the forum from Midway USA.

    A couple years ago I had the same question. I did a Google search for Camping clubs Kansas City. We found a good bunch that gets together six or seven times a year. Last weekend a bunch of us got together for the KC T.V. Show and lunch afterward.

    Great, there are several right in the area and you can find some of them here or just ask. chances are there is someone here who's been there before. I know your area well, the family estate is on Peter's Mtn, at the south end of Schuylkill Co. You can Google "Smyk Road" in the area and you'll find the homestead, not far away from you. I also have a cousin up your way.
