Glad to find this forum!

We've been camping over a year now and recently upgraded from a Flagstaff Highwall 27SC popup to a 2012 Flagstaff V-Lite 30WTBS.

We're a family of 6 with 4 kids ranging in age from 9 to 15 and love the bunkhouse in the new V-lite! Some trips we all go, but many times it's just me (Mom) and the kids. I'm fortunate enough to have liberal vacation and also work from home for a 'major financial institution' so I can work from the road as long as I have decent internet (which is a subject for another post...)

Our most recent trip was up to the Gettysburg, PA area. First time out with the new TT and had a great time. Planning to take several weeks with the kids to go out west summer of 2013. Already have our 2 day mule trip down into the Grand Canyon booked.

Looking forward to being a part of the forums!

Susan

Susan, welcome.

There is a cool app I use to connect my laptop to my iPhone and use it's data. If I stay out of the videos, I can keep my bandwidth within 3 GB limit I seem to have. Works great.

arlee453,
Welcome to the forum. A nice thing about living in NC, there are lots of nice campgrounds close enough to you for a weekend trip.
Enjoy.

Welcome Susan and kids. We did the Grand Canyon mule ride to the Phantom Ranch in 1992 and loved it. We hope to do it again if my back will allow it. The kids will love it. When you get to the bottom at the Phantom Ranch they can swim in the river and have a blast.

We have a V-Lite 30WKFSS. We love it.

Check your private messages for some info on internet access.
