Hi from Nicole & Dean

Hey there! Apparently I went about joining this forum in the incorrect way, so I’m trying again! Lol. Our laptop has decided it doesn’t want to work currently, and I tried joining via my phone—-which I can only see so much with, and I didn’t realize there are so many areas of this forum to explore! Currently I’m on the iPad and can see much more, and I found the “welcome mat” that I was told I needed to introduce us in. We live in Giddings, TX, and I’ve been wanting a camper for several years. I finally talked my husband into it and the search began for the perfect one. After months of researching, we settled on the Wildwood Heritage Glen Elite 36FL. It’s actually bigger than I really wanted to get (we have had trouble finding campgrounds with space to accommodate), but we loved everything else about it, so we bit the bullet. We are basically “weekend warriors” because I’m pretty positive nether of us will ever be able to retire and travel like I’d like to. So, weekend trips and (hopefully) an occasional longer trip here or there will be how we get to enjoy our camper. I’m an RN, my husband was in the oilfield for his whole adult life until 2013 when the 3rd lay-off forced him to get a regular, low-paying county job (and we dipped into my retirement funds to live). Now we continue to work as much as we have to, my husband doesn’t work for the county so we can live a little easier, and we try to enjoy the weekends. We are looking forward to many trips in “Big Bertha” and I’m glad I found this forum to communicate with others who love camping.

Welcome

Hi! Welcome from Central Minnesota! I don't think you did it wrong, there are as many ways to use these forums as there are people using them. I never did the Welcome Mat thing...

I didn’t realize there was a welcome mat, until I was told I needed to go there and introduce us. What a difference when you look at this site on something other than your phone! :-)

Welcome from upstate NY. I read your intro twice, it seems you folks have had some tough times. I hope and pray the camper helps you turn the corner in your lives. The good Lord works in mysterious ways, take one day at a time, we're cheering for you!
