I have been visiting the forums here for quite awhile and decided it was time to say hello. I love this site.
I'm a happily married woman in my 40s. The kids are grown with the youngest being 18 years old. We live in Kitsap County, Washington, between Tacoma and Bremerton.
My husband and I camp often. Sometimes our trips are just the two of us, other times we camp with large groups of family. The one thing that never changes is we always camp with our dogs. We have three dogs that live to camp. Britt is a lab/pitbull mix. Pandora & Rebel are ancient longhaired miniature dachshunds. This summer we are also camping with two kittens, Muggle and Abigail. I would love to raise them to be campers, but this will only last as long as I feel it's safe to take them. As soon as I get nervous about their safety, they will be home with our other two older cats.
We owned a wonderful little Coleman popup camper for several years. We camped often in our popup and I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for that little camper. As time went on, we decided we really needed a sturdy hard sided travel trailer that requires a little less setup time. In June of 2009, we purchased our 2004 Salem by Forest River. We love our Salem and have had several wonderful trips.
Besides camping, our other hobby is geocaching
. The two go perfectly together. We call it geocamping. Our dogs love it and it's great exercise for dog and human. Most of all, it's fun.
I also scrapbook and make greeting cards.
I don't know alot of the technical stuff about vehicles and hitches, but I love to exchange ideas for great camping meals and camping stories about our pets.
I love forward to visiting often and getting aquainted with other Forest River owners.
