    First I want to say hi and also say that I'm glad I found such a great online community. I'm even more excited to say that my wife and I finally found a great pop up, a 2004 Coleman Cheyenne, which we purchased about 3 weeks ago from one of her high school friends.

    I have to admit, I'm a total noob when it comes to camping, having never done it. But she has been camping since she was in her mom's belly haha. So she will be the one to show me all the tricks of the trade. We have talked about buying a camper for a few years now, but never got around to working out the mathematics of it. Finally after having our first child about 10 months ago, we knew camping was going to be our new way of having some family trips, and the search for a good camper was on.

    Through crazy luck and the connectivity of Facebook, she found a high school friend who had one, which he had purchased new back in 2004. The Coleman/Fleetwood Cheyenne is in incredible condition. When we went to see it, the seller had it all set up and I looked at all the obvious/common problem areas, which I learned about here [;)], and found no issues whatsoever. He gave us some extra equipment, all the manuals, all the paperwork for the extra stuff and even a new battery. What can I say, we got a great deal [:D]

    So now I'm here to read some more, learn as much possible and hopefully share some memories of our adventures to come.
    Thanks for reading. See you on the open road [LOL]

    This sounds like lots of fun. I unfortunately think I'm working that weekend plus the previous weekend I'll be traveling to the Midwest Volkswagen show for the weekend. I'm not sure I'll be able to travel back to back weekends.

    Thanks for the invite! Have lots of fun :)
