New guy

Hey, my name is John and my family and I are proud owners of a new Wildwood 261BHXL. We're from Central Indiana, and camp mostly within the state.
We have been camping since 2008, which was with a '08 Trail Cruiser C191 Hybrid. With a trip to Disney coming up, we decided to move up to fully enclosed trailer. Have been very pleased, to say the least.
I own and teach piano at a small music studio, as well as accompany an area middle school's choir where a former college class mate is director. I also do concerts when the opportunity arises. Nice to meet all of you.

elcome from Georgia

You have found a great place to chat with fellow coach owners...Learn lots of new stuff that many of us did not know before we got here...Be careful coming through Atlanta Georgia...Please do not come after three in the afternoon, and never come on Friday after noon...Best bet is to come through in the middle of the night...trust me on that...take I-285 around the city if possible..at mid-night the view of downtown is great and find if you stay on I-75 South..have any problems just give me a heads up...Red Top Mtn. State Park is a good place to stop for the night..

Oh my gosh LKicklight what great advice! My BFF and her guy were driving a big truck from Florida back to Missouri and went through Atlanta....at 2:00 in the afternoon....OMWord....I had heard stories and did not believe it until I saw it with my own eyes!! When we finally made it to the other side....we all laughed to relieve the tension!

Can you say ...... Scary?

We are going to FW right after school lets out next June. Kids will be 8 and 5, perfect age for the trip. My job/career makes it nearly impossible to go any other time of the year.
Last time I was at Fort Wilderness, it was 1979 and I was 4. Went down in my parent's 1976 Prowler travel trailer, pulled by a '76 chevy 1500 custom van (you know, with counter tops, cabinets, and curtains on the windows?) Trailer was white with orange and red graphics, and an interior to match. Tandem axles with moon hub caps. My folks took the whole family down a couple years ago for New Years (insane!)
This will be the last trip I make probably until I have grand kids. Once in a lifetime.

Congrats on the new Wildwood. Just got back from FW a couple weeks ago. Completely agree on the 285 West bypass around Atlanta. Hit it on Saturday afternoons on the way down and back and had no issues. DW was checking on traffic.com as we were a little ways a way and it was great. Also if you need to go through Nashville I would recommend taking the Briley Parkway bypass if traffic is bad. Not a bad drive and only a couple stoplights at the end of it. We hit it on the way down because traffic was horrible as the CMAs were going on that weekend.

FW is awesome, kids were 5 and 7 and it was a perfect age for both this year.
