Welcome, from SW Michigan. Congrats on the new "little unit", and on your new camper. Lots of learning curve with each of those endeavors, but the key is to enjoy the journey together! God bless your family.

Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes. We're both very excited about both of our new endeavors. And truthfully I'm looking forward to the learning curve, half the fun of anything new is learning how to do it.

Cyclepuck, as coincidence would have it my wife, brother, sister and more all graduated from Genesee. And my mom and stepdad were on Genesee Fire for a while. That was around 8-10 yrs ago now. Myself, I was military for a while then returned to Mi when I landed full time fire for Saginaw.

Welcome from a North Eastern Michigan Camper. You will enjoy this a lot. We just moved from a tent to a camper 3 years ago and we raised 6 children in a tent before we did. The camper is the way to go.

I know where you are coming from with a baby in a tent. I've been at this camping thing a long time (although this is my 1st Rockwood) and in 1983 while camping at Porcupine Mtn's state park, a monsoon put an end to our tent days. Had to clean out the home built 'custom' van (I know, how 1980's), of captain's chairs to put up the mini crib for my 2 yr old to sleep in for the night.
We stayed dry and my son did speak his 1st sentence when he discovered "his" chair was missing saying, "Where's Matt's chair?" (Yeah, 3rd person). Four units later and no kids left at home, still love it.
Don't ever give it up, it is a lifetime of memories for your children and you as well.

Welcome from Huntsville, AL - and Congrats on the camper AND Baby!


can certainly relate to camping in a tent with tots - we actually did that for a period of years before we were done and bought a Popup! You're smart and skipped the popup phase most of us former tent campers have been through!

I swear every firefighter in the state knows that man. But no I don't work with him. Dan is a volunteer on the Saginaw Township Dept. I work for the City of Saginaw.

HSVBamaBob,

My wife's family had a pop up for a few years when she was growing up. Mice took care of the canvas and any desire to buy another. We both agreed that a travel trailer and a crying infant was the more courteous way to go for the rest of the campsite.

Is the State of Mi on here? Great place to be from. As far from....oh heck never mind Snyder can't help himself.

We are from Grand Ledge, oh sold that place, so during the summer months we hang out at site # 12 in Ionia at Alice Springs RV park and Resort on M66 a mile or so North off I-96. It's a fairly new park and real nice. If some of you are in the area stop in and say HI, real nice place for an overnight or weekend stay.
We spend our winters in Casa Grande AZ and really enjoy that. Not sure when we'll get back to MI this year because when we leave here sometime in May, we'll stop around Indy for a graduation of a grandson, then on to Branson Mo for a little FROG Rally at the ABC Camp ground with our FROGY friends and then a trip to MI to see Family then on to Goshen for the big Annual Frog Rally. Gee I hope diesel goes down and stays down. Am I asking for to much?
Then around Oct I'll turn the big F-250 around and head for the South West again. Oh this retirement is hard work..
This is just a little ramble from thetwoofus as we wait for Goshen registration to open. Have a nice Spring everyone, see you in Branson and or Goshen.
