I'm Karen, near Gettysburg . Been tent camping for years, bought a pup several years ago. We really enjoyed tent camping , but I just wasn't comfortable sleeping anymore. So nice to have a bed and be able to move around a little if it rains. We have 2 dogs that go along too, so much easier with them. We camp in the state park nearby. We don't travel far. Most of the Summer our pup is on our neighbors secluded property. If we get a cool weekend we pop up and camp. We pull it out in the Fall and head out. Fall is our favorite time to go!
