Yes, otherwise we must be wary of rogue pandas (eats, shoots & leaves). We're late bloomers. I never camped as a kid while my wife has some memories of a truck camper. We never camped as a couple and bought our PUP rather impulsively last year (that tends to be our SOP). The girls were 7 & 9. We've been on close to 10 trips and have never looked back!
