Official hello from Tampa

I started posting on here a few weeks ago, but wanted to officially say "hello". My husband also posts on here, under a different name.

We will (hopefully on Saturday!) soon own a 2013 Rockwood Mini Lite 2306. Can't wait! We were tent campers that graduated to a used pop up while we found our bearings.

It will be the home away from home for us, our three kids (7, 9, and 10), and 2 Australian Shepherds. We typically camp wherever there is water, so we can kayak and dive/snorkel. We are weekend campers, and already have five trips planned before Fourth of July, from the Panhandle down to the Keys. Our favorite spots are in what is considered the "Nature Coast" of Florida. Just north of Tampa are various rivers and springs that are pure perfection for nature lovers.

My parents also own a Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8315BSS, which they bought last year as their "retirement plan". They have taken it out a few times, but their first big trip will be to Yellowstone in a few weeks.

If your DH posts under a different name I probably already welcomed him to the forum. This post is to welcome you to the forum and congrats on your 2013 Rockwood 2306.

Welcome aboard from Orlando. We try to camp at a Florida State Park at least 1 week a month. Next trip is in April to Paynes Prairie. Hope to cross paths with you.

Welcome from Orange City! Like Mike & Kris, we also camp at the Florida SP's. Just got back from Manatee Springs. We're skipping April (family yard sale). Going to Silver River & Blue Springs in May & June. Might just see you out and about during the year. Good luck with your new tt.

Hi Mike & Kris!

We went to Florida Caverns in January. Not on our list to repeat. Of course we didn't make it to the caverns area as Phyllis is claustrophobic. So kind of makes me wonder why we picked this park in the first place. Like I told her, I'd like to go back just so I can see the cavern. She can just read a good book while I'm gone exploring.

I want to paddle Silver River so badly!!! We've not made it yet... the couple times we've planned it we were rained out.

We're doing Caverns for Memorial Day weekend! Rainbow River in a couple of weeks for tubing. We love Rainbow River, for tubing and paddling, and go there often.

Why not a repeat, just because you didn't do the caverns? We are stoked, the kids have never seen caves before. Growing up in the Midwest, I'm used to them.

Blue Spring is nice. We have camped there. We were at Collier-Seminole in early March. Just trying to wear the wheels off out TT.
