Smile Newbie saying hello

Looked through this site and it seems to be filed with alot of info and a lot of good people.

My wife and I have a 2005 Grand Suveyor GS260. Bought new. It's been a good little camper. We started in a tent, then a pop up, now the surveyor. We camp mostly in the blue ridge mts and the coast of SC. Still working so we can't stray too far.
Wife shows dogs ( 4 Toy fox terriers) in agility so we do the dog show circuit and camp there when we can.

Glad to read people are already getting out and camping, wish we could go. Still cold here. Planning a trip to lakewood campground in Myrtle Beach in April if it warms up by then.
Happy Trails to all

Hello! We seem to have some things in common. Tent, then pop-up, then Surveyor. We also have 2 Wirehair Fox Terriers. There is a photo of them in the Pet section. Welcome. Bob

rescued dogs can be the best dogs you ever have.
Was the pic of your camper taken at Lakewood?
Thats our favorite place to camp. I grew up in Myrtle. The area has changed so much that we don't even leave the campground. Why should we, they have everything.
Happy trails

My BIL and his GF take in rescued dogs, Shia tzu. Last time we spoke, they had in the neighborhood of 40. I can't imagine taking care of 40 dogs.
