Denny & Suni, I do believe that's called a lay in, not a sleep in

We upgraded to a 21FBRS from a 13ft Aliner Twist. Our DD and her DH bought a 21ft hybrid. My sister and her DH bought a motorhome. By brother bought a 26Ft Keystone. All this year.

We all winterized a couple of weeks ago. In the process, both my DW and sister started whining about going camping.

We have to wait until late April for our annual trip to Florida.

If I'm pretending I'm asleep so the DW has to take the furbabies for the morning walk, it can't be "laying in", it has to be "sleeping in".

Picked it up in April 2013. Camped 7 trips/30 nights in 2013.

I research TTs, and when I took DW to RV show and when she saw the 21FBRS she said that's the one.

We REALLY like the Microlite. We couldn't find a single thing wrong. (We did mod the shower and added a screen door bar.)

My brother had to add outside grill, LED builbs, water filter, and much more to get his new Keystone close to our "stock" Microlite.

Now I have to figure out how to add bar to the "entertainment" stack on the wall.

Soooo many lives and paths people have gone through and all the stories that go with it, it's seems unreal. Here is my story,

My parents were not into camping so I did not grow up in a camping background, it is funny how some things stick in the memory though, my dad got or borrowed a tear drop trailer when I was a todler and I remember that 4 adults and 4 kids went to the coast to camp by the ocean near Monterey CA. We got there in darkness and I had no idea where we were, Dad and Mom, Dads brother and his wife put us kids down for the night and they all climbed in the tear drop to sleep (can you immagine 4 adults like sardines in a tear drop, dad and uncle were both weel over 200 pounds). Us kids slept in the car, my sister in the front seat, brother in the back seat, cousin chuck in the back floorboard on a pillow and I was above the back seat up in the back window (me and chuck were pretty small as you can immagine). Well the next morning I woke to a bright sunny morning, looked out the window and saw the ocean for the first time. I remember a small coleman stove and an assortment of food, playing on the beach in the sand.

Though my life didn't involve any more camping that I can remember is not to say my parents weren't involved in keeping us active our thing was water skiing every weekend weather allowed it was always family members sometimes as many as 20 people with several boats, dad worked evenings and nights usually 7 days a week, mom worked in a chicken processing plant, there were no paid vacations back then so it was work, work, work then enjoy your weekend but be home in time for dad to go to work.

Present day: DW and I started camping with our first TT a 19' Flagstaff Micro Lite last year (too small) traded up to the 26' T26TBSS early this year. Since I didn't camp so my kids did not either (5 of them) though they did go with freinds some times. We are enjoying the time we have together when DW and I are out camping, but we also have the grand kids who love to go when there is no school so we round them up when we can. Our camping grandkids are 12, 16 and 18. The 18 year old went out with us twice before shipping out to Germany (he is now a medic with an army special forces team waiting for further deployment). The 12 year old grandson and 16 year old granddaughter go with us every chance they get, our first trip we took all three in the 19' TT the 5 of us made that TT seem pretty small but we had a great time. We're working on raising another little camper he just turned 1, DW and I have him every Tuesday and Friday (unless we go camping of course) his other grandma lives with our son and daughter-in-law and watches him the rest of the time when the parents are working. We have tried to get our other kids and their kids to go but no luck so far.

I mean a bar as in booze. Summertime and camping is Margarita time.

After the bar mod I need to see if I can mod the pickup bed into a hot tub!

Just kidding. We camp mostly at stste parks which frown on alcohol use or possession.

Me and the DW took a ride to Camping World today. The Patriots have a bye-week, so we didnt have to go out to watch football. Anyway, we were at CW in Fort Myers, 1500 miles away from our 5R and got to see some weary travelers looking for the parts department. Sorry sir, the parts department is closed on Sunday, but we are having a sale on chairs, coolers and grills. So I proceeded the suggest they upgrade their chairs, coolers and grill and camp out for the night. I tried to explain to them that they could do some adult camping and get up in the morning and check out the parts department.

They just looked at me like I had two heads. I have to admit, I do have a very large cranium, but it is NOT the size of two. I tried to talk the DW into staying and showing them what adult camping was, but she just gabbed me and said let's get out of here.

PS: One of the RV's had a broom bungeed to the rear ladder.

i'm working on another mod. I bought wireless camera and mirror mounted monitor for rear view camera setup.

Since trailer is fiberglass and wireless camera is suppose to have 160ft range it should work good. My cost so far $60.00.
