This is what I was hoping for.
As for Steen's all I can do is make simple sweet.

RVing keeps my family together and closer than we were before. I love that my life has afforded me the opportunity to go fulltime as a family.

As a fulltime family, we've been able to see and visit family and friends across the country.

Oh, and it's forced me to be mildly handy.

Despite all the issues we have had, we keep with our sabre because we love the floor plan and trim level. We have had great help from frogs, FRF members, our dealership and forest river. We have made a ton of great friends and want to keep making more friends. I have said it before and I will say it again... camping helped save my marriage. My DH and I were drifting apart. We were on the verge of a separation. Against my better judgement, i let him talk me into our first tt. Suddenly we were taking walks together. We were playing cards while our DD napped. We reconnected. That was five years ago. How can you walk away from something that brings your family back to basics just because of some mechanical issues. What does that teach my child? She watched us push through and learned strength from hardship.

That was a very personal thing to share. Thanks for stating something that everyone can take something good away with them. All of these posts help temper what I have been reading here lately.

"spendydad", handsome family.

DH and I got our first camper, pop up camper right after the first bed bug scare since I wasn't real willing to sleep in someone else's bed and possibly bring them home. It turned out to be too small for us and we steadily moved up to bigger and nicer till we got to our 27RLWS. Now we have Chole' and I have done so many mods to her to make it just right for us. The Room, The Slides, The counter space, the Bedroom door that shuts and keeps out the tv noise when DH can't sleep. The reasons we keep it.. All the reasons listed above and then some....some I can't even find the words to say. I am the only one of the kids my parents raised that still camps and we get together every year to spend time with each other that we were never able to do before.
We have found new friends and new reasons to get out camping more than ever before also.

Too many to mention, but there it goes:
- First and foremost, we need to thank our Lord for giving us the opportunities to enjoy what he has blessed us with.
- Taking our kids out of the daily electronic filled world (iPads, Video Games, etc..) and having them enjoy the simple things we all did like playing outside!
- Enjoy new places.
- Meeting new people. We are always blessed with meeting great camping neighbors.
And of course having you own moving bathroom! Let's face it, we're not getting any younger! haha.

God Bless,
Matt

Life IS grand, but oh too short! Glad you are making the most of it and we ALL should be as well!!!!
