We spent 22 years tenting and our 3 month old was with us at the start...we packed more disposable diapers than camping gear. Monthly, weekend trips were part of our lives. Our daughter's experiences are a "touchstone" for all of us. As she grew, her friends came along and we introduced camping to many young people. We are retired teachers now and just purchased a Roo after 12 years in a popup without our daughter, but 2 dogs. So, 22 years in tents, 12 years in a PUP, and, now, a hybrid. Our grandchildren (ages 4 & 6) join us. The family camping lifestyle is a thing of beauty. Outdoors, family, and "war stories" for a lifetime...enjoy your new hobby.
