Knewbies from Knoxville

Hey there everyone.

We got our 2014 Flagstaff Pop Up last November and have logged a few trips this year. We're complete novices in every sense of the word but hopefully using this forum and advice from experienced folks, we'll learn a lot fast.

We've been tent campers for a long time and enjoy getting away with our dogs whenever we can. We love music festivals, baseball, beaches, lakes, rivers, and mountains and plan on taking our camper with us to any and all of them.

I've already asked a question on here (I broke the rules and didn't do my Welcome Mat post first) and I'm not even sure it's in the right place*, but I'm just jumping in. That's how we'll figure out more stuff.

Looking forward to it all.

*It was totally in the wrong place.

Welcome from North East Tennessee, Elizabethton and don't pay any attention to Major or in fact me ether because I don't think I posted there, lol. Anyway welcome and hope you enjoy the wonderful ride, might suggest you look at the F.R.O.G site also and become a member. The only big problem is you will fall in love with FROG events.

Welcome to the forums! There's no set rule about posting in the 'Welcome Mat' first so no need to worry. Most of the welcome wagon crew tend to hang out here keeping an eye out for new comers. As long as you feel welcome we are OK with the fast forward to another forum. (Ok, I have watched too much of the Amazing Race.)

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

What! You didn't sign up at the Welcome Mat first? Now you have to read the Mayberry FRG thread, understand the potluck procedures and join us in Mt Airy, NC next May to explain yourself. And bring at least one dog and some wine. Welcome from Clarksville, TN.
