Hi everybody - hope you'll accept a tent camper (for now)! I grew up camping - the poor man's vacation as my parents call it - I remember tent camping in Wildwood NJ when I was 3 and my brother was an infant. Over the years we had tents, pop-ups, vintage trailers, and my parents ended their camping years in a 32-ft 5th wheel, but it was always awesome. So many of my best memories were made at campgrounds. I had a small TT when my older daughter was young so she grew up with "the bug" and always requested to go camping for her birthday - a girl after my own heart! Now I'm older, remarried and have a soon-to-be 4-year-old and want him to have those same memories. We don't have a vehicle large enough to tow, and not in the market any time soon, so we're tent camping for now but I still stalk Craigslist for my dream PUP I love reading about everyone's experiences on here and hope to join the PUP team in a few years! We're in Illinois - we are exploring our area including southern WI and central IL and having a blast. I already have the first spring trip planned (can't get out quite as soon in a tent but hey, that's what they make warm sleeping bags for) Thanks for having me!
