    I thought "d" in dw and dh stood for da' wife or da' hubby or db da' bears for those Chicago folks.

    But also all these abbreviations remind me of a text message that read somewhere and it went like this.
    Mother- " son, just wanted you to know your grandma died lol"
    Son- "mom do you know what lol means?"
    Mother - " lots of love"
    Son - "no mom it means laugh out loud"
    Mother- " oh my god, I sent that to all my family. I got to make some calls bye"

    Something I have been seeing lately: "PU" used for pop-up...I'm thinking that's "pick-up" (as in truck) and stick with "pup"! [;)]

    Welcome from Kentucky. Some of the abbreviations can be a bit tricky but you will get the hang of it. Lots of good info on here and if you ever have a question just ask the people on this site are extra nice and very helpful. We are just getting back into camping after several years of not but we are enjoying ourselves and meeting new friends at the campground. Thats what it's all about..

    Good Day folks. Glad I found you portal. It has been very helpful. Bought a 1998 Starcraft Venture a month ago, took it out last weekend. All went well.

    Y'all are awesome!!

    I figured the DW, DH, DS, DD, would kinda depend on the context. the "D" could be a number of things depending on the tone of the post.

    IE: The DW broke it again!!!
    My DW is an awesome cook!!

    I think you can fill in whatever "D" word you feel is appropriate to the feeling of the post.

    If I would have found this thread a long time ago, this site would have made more sense sooner!

    One I didn't see defined yet was PO - Previous Owner

    When I respond to a new member I usually type everything out... to avoid confusing them any more than they already are! [;)] I've only been active here for awhile and I still occasionally have to ask the DH (that's 'dear') "what does ___ stand for"?

    Happy camping!
