Hi, after lurking on this great site for a a while I thought it was high time to come out of the shadows and say hello. I'm Michael and I live in the Northeast. My dogs and I have been camping for years. About 5 years ago my friends decided that since I recently purchased an SUV that had a towing package, it was time for me to move up from tent camping. For my birthday they got together and bought me an 1972 Apache Mesa solid state pup. Since then I have been enjoying the great outdoors more than ever. Since joining this forum I have enjoyed reading about all your adventures and benefited from the great advice and ideas everyone shares. Thanks for making this a great place to learn.
