    Hello everyone. My name is Tim. We have just purchased (for a song) our first camper. Just paid the guy's storage fee and it was ours. And it is really quite nice too. [SUN] My wife and I are close to 50 now. We have done some state park tent camping a few times in the past. One time getting really swamped in a torrential downpour in a cheap worn out old tent was enough. That tent got trashed and things got put on hold for a while After a couple years of wishing this camper found us. So, basically we've just got it home and are learning the ropes here, getting ready for our first trip. I'm sure that won't be 'til spring now, but I'm excited to try out our new home away from home. The camper has heat and a stove and a fridge - so a big step up from tent camping - and our days of sleeping on the ground are over. Yay!!
    So thanks for the great forum - and I'll se ya around...
    Tim

    Congrats on your first camper! We just upgraded from the tents too! One trip with "tornado like" condtions and the dream began. This site had given me so much great advice and so many ideas, I can't wait til spring!

    Then congrats are due your way too! I'm excited to get out there too. I've even asked my wife about trying a little weekend trip, close to home before winter - we'll see.
    Enjoy. [CP]
