Howdy FR Friends & Neighbors!
Once upon a time, I scoffed at anyone who slept in a tent, much less a camper trailer! "Aww, that's for softies!" I'd say. I grew up with the outdoors on my mind. I was a survival trained specialist in the military and a leader of a hard-chargin' scouting group called Royal Rangers (where outdoor camp craft was taught continuously). Yep. I was quite skilled at living and surviving off the land.
Now I'm 50 years old....and there goes the end of a saga. A couple years ago my wife and I bought a Starcraft pop-up. After all, that's almost like camping in a tent, I reasoned. More recently, we "up-graded" and we are new RV'ers with our recent (used) purchase of a 2009 Forest River Wildwood (T31QBSS). It was like new and had been stored indoors. We are excited to get started on our new adventure in RV 'camping'.
Boy, I didn't realize that buying the new travel trailer was just the start of my financial investment! Now we've upgraded to a memory foam mattress with cooling gel (*any survivalist would realize the importance of this!), full camper 'indoor' stocking of cooking utensils, dishes, etc, upgraded sewer supplies, TT tools and extra supplies, stabilizer jacks, stabilizer wheel chocks, electric tongue hitch, and the list goes on and on and on. I have a feeling it always will!
I'm looking forward to reviewing the many threads here on FR Forums. I'm gonna try to follow my dear Mother's advice.... "learn from someone else's mistakes!" I'll be seeing you 'round on the forum.
Another Happy Camper
