    You stand in a group at the CG and what you have in common has soft sides. You meet the greatest people owning a PUP.

    ...when the phrases "mine pops up" or "bed wedgie" aren't considered off-color in your house...

    ...when you've used the acronym SPUT more than five times in a sentence...

    ...when you hear your 5 year old arguing with your 6 year old about whether to raise the roof before or after you drop the stabilizers...

    ...when you feel a shiver run up and down your spine every time you hear the words "canvas" and "mice" used in the same sentence...

    ...when you've put the top from a Coleman lantern on your head instead of a lampshade to be the "life of the party..."

    ...when you scope out campgrounds while on your way to a wedding/funeral...

    ...when your favorite phrase is; "Don't bother me - I'm on pop-up time..."

    You spend way too much time arguing over silly shower issues on an internet forum. . . .

    You are looking for a new job, and one of the primary considerations is "will this schedule adversely affect my ability to camp?"

    When you work Monday through Thursday and then your job changes to mandatory 5 day work week, meaning you have to work on Fridays!! [:O] You decide it is time to retire, which I did on May 20, 2011 [:)C]

    I actually bought my first popup on the way back from a funeral, it was sitting in a yard across the street from the cemetery for sale.

    When you go to a great CG and were afraid you wouldn't get a spot and another member of the forum offers you a spot in their small group area, but luckily you end up right next to their spot!! Then another pup'er comes by and introduces themselves because they saw on the forum that you were going to this CG. Rained like the sky had opened, but got to meet some great new folks!! I LOVE OUR PUP!! [PU]

    Ain't it awesome when you run into someone from the Portal totally by chance when your camping. It's almost like you found a long lost brother you didn't know existed.

    That it is!!

    Also know my DH, (who had camped once in his life before marrying me), is now a PUP'r [:)C] since we are spending our 29th anniversary camping in October and on the way home from cg today, when I asked what he might want for our anniversary said, 'I dunno something for 'Louise' (affectionate name for the PUP [PU]) (TV is Thelma [TV]). We are going for grilled surf and turf for the big dinner!!

    you have to set up the trailer every time The World's Cutest Grandchild comes to visit so she can sleep in it and pretend she's camping. [PU]

    ..........when events come up and you start making arrangements to pull the pop-up to them. Also thinking of excuses to camp any chance you can get.
