    Hey all,

    Glad to be here. I'm Melissa. I'm 37. I live in CT. I've driven fully across the country 3 times now for vacations (along with many other partial trips!) I'm an experienced tent and car camper and I ADORE it.

    I've been on a lazy hunt for a van or camper setup for YEARS and just bought my first PUP! She's a 1996 Hard side Palomino TXL-SC. Bought her from a guy who bought it 3 weeks before in an effort to get his wife to go camping (needless to say, she said heck no!). She seems to be in pretty good shape.. All the important parts work so far. Needs some TLC and for me to figure out what the heck to do about all the spray paint that they coated over everything. o_O

    I grew up with my parents always having a camper. They started with a lil sunline and moved up to a coachman and just recently a new shiny RV. I've been pitching tents since I was old enough to stay outside by myself, so this is a brand new and exciting endeavor! [CP]

    Welcome from Northern Virginia a transplant from Mystic, CT. Most of my family still live in the CT, RI states. Been living down here so long I don't miss the New England Winters. [:>(]. Congrats on your new to you camper. I looked at a few of those poliminos but they are not as common around here and the ones I saw were in awful care. Good luck with your repairs and can't wait to hear about some of your trips.

    HAHA! Nobody I know misses the winters, but for some reason, some still return! My fingers are super crossed with this undertaking! We were supposed to take it on a maiden trial venture this week; but the BF got sick. I'll take all the luck I can get! [:D]
